Eric Hartline / USA TODAY Sports

Unrestricted free agent Sam Gagner is getting closer to signing a new contract, with a number of teams, including the Canucks, in the mix, Gagner's agent told News 1130 in Vancouver on Friday.

The 26-year-old forward appeared in 53 games for the Philadelphia Flyers last season, recording eight goals and eight assists. For his career, he is averaging 0.57 points per game, which works out to 47 for every 82 games played.

Gagner signed a three-year deal that carried an average annual valuation of $4.8 million, and will likely be in line for a short-term, lower-money deal this time around.
