Kevin Gagne, D

Shoots: L

Height: 5-8

Weight: 176

Born: 1992-04-14

Hometown: Edmundston, NB

Drafted: Signed by Anaheim in April, 2013







December 2015- The Anaheim Ducks have loaned Gagne to Mora IK of the Swedish Hockey League.  He has only skated in five games this season, and is yet to register a point.  Anaheim can only hope that Gagne finds a niche in his complex style of play that might yield the potential for a return to North American hockey. As of now, it is appearing that his lack of size (5'8, 175lbs) is hindering his ability to play on the back-end, and his difficulties transitioning to forward will keep him in a "no mans land" that no hockey player ever wants to be in.  Bryan Puffer


November 2015 – The smallish defenseman was used at times at forward during his AHL career. Despite that, he could never really find the offense at that level after dominating the QMJHL ranks. He decided to put his NHL quest on hold and instead play this season in Sweden, though his SEL start was delayed due to immigration issues. Dobber


September, 2013 – Gagne was among the first cuts at the Ducks' training camp this season. The former QMJHL Defenceman of the Year recipient will be sent to Norfolk to further season his game. Last season, he snuck in a few games with the Norfolk Admirals, posting an assist in five games. Look for him to help out the Norfolk PP this season. He stands behind many fantasy-relevant defensemen in Anaheim and will have to wait his turn. If he gets a regular shot in the NHL, he can develop into a fine PP quarterback. Kevin Won


April, 2013 – Kevin Gagne is an undersized offensive defenseman, known for his strong two-way game and high hockey IQ. This season was split between the Saint John Sea Dogs and the Rimouski Oceanic, scoring a total of 17 goals and 54 assists in 62 games. His 71 points was good for second in defensive scoring in the QMJHL. He was able to flourish after being traded, as Rimouski was lacking a powerplay quarterback. He has all the tools to be an effective offensive defenseman, but size will always be an issue. He will have to work hard at honing his game to get to the level of guys like Rafalski or Enstrom, also undersized but effective in the NHL. The sky is the limit for Gagne, as his dynamic play will help him get to the top. Kevin Won


Fantasy Outlook: C-

Don't expect any fantasy production immediately, as Gagne will be a long-term project if and when he decides to return to North America
