    Gagne is 22, and has 9 points in 33 AHL games.

    Seems random

    We get younger and bigger? I can remember his name from the 2015 draft. Does this guy play physical and/or fight?

    I guess the Morgan Klimchuk deal didn't work out to great.

    Nov 27th, 2018
    The Toronto Maple Leafs traded defenceman Andrew Nielsen to the Calgary Flames for Morgan Klimchuk.

    The Marlies did need a little more RW depth and I guess they liked Gagne enough to make this.

    We traded nothing for nothing for most likely nothing.

    What a write up from Elite Prospects on him. He sounds great, obviously this wouldn't be the player we are getting today as you wouldn't be able to trade Klimchuk for this. But still interesting to see what was written about him at the time of the draft:

    A tall and lanky center with superb offensive instincts and a good all-around game. Skates very well for his size, and his acceleration is remarkable; his lower body strength generates a lot of power with respect to his mobility. Possesses an absolutely wicked release to his shot, as well as good hands around the net. Has shown some signs of creativity in playmaking; when he plays his game simply, hard on the forecheck, getting into prime-time scoring areas, he can be a very difficult player to contain. Defensively active in his own end - uses his long reach to knock pucks off opponents' sticks, and isn't afraid to hound and hit; able to quickly transition from defense to offense and move the puck out using his speed. All-in-all, a big-bodied, number-generating forward that has the skill and size to be a force at both ends of the ice.

    He had 20 goals last year in the AHL... On Belleville.

    6 more goals than #2.

    I liked the Klimchuk trade, but Gagne is better than both him and Nielsen, and Carcone passed over him for playing time. He may not get a huge role on the Marlies (maybe only a 4th line role), and may not even be back next year given his deal expires, but this is a good move to bring in someone who fills a need for the AHL, and in our prospect pool, all for a guy whose 13 game sample on the Marlies suggested we would not bring him back.

    He sounds like a winger version of Gauthier, with more of a natural edge and maybe more offense in favour of high-end defense. He seems like more of a complimentary winger, and he'll have a lot more to compliment on the Marlies than he ever did on the Baby Sens... Even on the 4th line.

    Had a strong year last year. Marlies will develop him, maybe he turns into a real player.
