Jean-Gabriel Pageau (born November 11, 1992) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently a member of the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Senators in the fourth round (96th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Career[edit]

Born in Ottawa and raised in neighbouring Hull, Quebec, Pageau played junior hockey with the Gatineau Olympiques and Chicoutimi Saguenéens of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (LHJMQ/QMJHL).

Selected by his hometown Ottawa Senators in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Pageau began his pro career in 2012-13 with the AHL's Binghamton Senators, registering 7 goals and 29 points in 69 games before being called up to Ottawa on April 10, 2013.[1] Pageau stayed in Ottawa for the remainder of the season, registering two goals and 4 points in nine regular season games. On May 5, 2013, he scored a hat-trick in game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-finals series as the Senators defeated the Montreal Canadiens 6-1. In doing so, he became just the second Senators' player to register a hat trick in the playoffs, with Daniel Alfredsson being the first. [2] Following the season, Pageau was honoured by his hometown; on June 18, 2013 he signed the official guestbook at the start of the Gatineau city council meeting and received a plaque. Gatineau Mayor Marc Bureau called him "a true ambassador for the city."[3]
