Gabriel Gagné (born November 11, 1996) is a Canadian professional ice hockey winger who is currently an unrestricted free agent. He most recently played with the Toronto Marlies in the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect to the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL). Gagné was drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Gagne was selected in the second round of the 2012 QMJHL Entry Draft by the Moncton Wildcats.[1] In January 2013, Gagne was traded to the Victoriaville Tigres as part of a trade that sent Phillip Danault to Moncton.[2]

After playing two-plus seasons with the Tigres, during which he scored 56 goals, Gagne was traded in December 2015 to the Shawinigan Cataractes in exchange for James Phelan and a draft pick.[3]

Gagne was drafted in the second round, 36th overall, by the Ottawa Senators in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.[4] One year later, he made his professional debut for the Senators' ECHL affiliate, the Wichita Thunder.

In the final year of his entry-level contract in the 2018–19 season, Gagne contributed with 9 points in 33 games with AHL affiliate, the Belleville Senators, before he was traded by Ottawa to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Morgan Klimchuk on January 11, 2019.[5]

Personal[edit]

Gagne has said he tries to play like Rick Nash, and he has also been compared to Steve Bernier.[1]
