Gagner still in play for Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers are still dangling center Sam Gagner as trade bait and are expected to trade him prior to July 1, when his no-trade clause officially kicks in.

Gagner, 24, was reportedly close to being dealt to the Los Angeles Kings earlier in the season, but the deal supposedly fell through.

The Nashville Predators, Toronto Maple Leafs and Dallas Stars have also expressed an interest in the London, Ontario native.

Gagner was limited to 67 games this season due to ankle issues and a broken jaw. He collected 10 goals and 27 assists for 37 points.

The Oilers were initially believed to be asking for a young defenseman and a draft pick in exchange for Gagner. It's unclear if their demands have changed.

Drafted sixth-overall by the Oilers in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Gagner has two-years left on his contract. His salary is $5 million, per year, over the next two seasons, though his annual salary cap hit is $4.8 million.
