Ex-Bruin Gagne Still Intends To Keep Playing

News: Simon Gagne recently indicated that he doesn't intend to retire and will be actively pursuing a contract with an NHL team this summer, Damien Cox of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: After a one-year hiatus, Simon Gagne returned to the NHL this past season with the Bruins, skating in 23 games and tallying three goals and an assist. However, he ended up leaving the team in early December following the death of his father, with the Bruins officially releasing him in January. Now 35, the two-time 70-point scorer probably projects as little more than a bottom-six forward at this stage of his career, but he's not really the grinder type that teams like to deploy on their third and fourth lines. He shouldn't have much difficulty landing a training-camp invite, but is far from a slam dunk to open 2015-16 on an NHL roster.

Bruins Place Gagne On Unconditional Waivers

News: Simon Gagne (personal) was placed on unconditional waivers, likely for the purpose of his release, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: The move doesn't change Simon Gagne's situation much, as it was announced a couple weeks earlier that he wouldn't return to the Bruins again this season following the recent death of his father. He'll put his hockey career on hold for now, but could resurface in training camp with another squad next summer.

Bruins' Gagne (Personal) Will Not Return This Year

News: Simon Gagne (personal) will not return to the Bruins this season.
Analysis: Simon Gagne took an indefinite personal leave of absence from the Bruins on Dec. 10 to be with his ailing father, who recently passed away. The forward has opted to sit out the rest of the NHL season, but Boston will maintain a full roster, as Gagne will officially be listed as "suspended player" by the team. "At this time Simon feels that he has to be home with his family and he has the complete support of the Boston Bruins organization with this decision," said GM Peter Chiarelli. "Given Simon's decision not to return to the team, we have to change his status to maintain a full roster. I spoke to Simon about this, and he assured me that we have his full support with this status change."

Bruins' Gagne Away From Team

News: Simon Gagne is away from the Bruins on a personal leave of absence, Joe Haggerty of csnne.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Claude Julien relayed Wednesday that Simon Gagne -- who has scored goals in two of his last four games -- will be out "indefinitely." In Gagne's absence from practice Wednesday, Seth Griffith skated with Daniel Paille and Gregory Campbell on the team's fourth line.

Bruins' Gagne On Personal Leave

News: Simon Gagne missed Tuesday's practice for personal reasons, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: It's not clear at this point if Simon Gagne's absence will extend beyond Tuesday's practice. At any rate, it appears that with the impending return of David Krejci, he could be at risk of getting phased out of the lineup. The veteran winger has three goals and four points in 23 games this season.

Bruins' Gagne Nabs Second Goal

News: Simon Gagne scored his second goal of the season in Monday's loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Simon Gagne has failed to get any sustained ice time outside of the Bruins' bottom-six forwards this season, which has prevented him from attaining much fantasy value just yet. The 34-year-old winger's best days are clearly behind him at this point.

Bruins' Gagne Likely To Play On Top Line Saturday

News: Simon Gagne is expected to play on the Bruins' top line in Saturday's game against the Sabres.
Analysis: The Bruins haven't yet found a viable replacement to Jarome Iginla as the top-line right wing, so it looks like Simon Gagne will be the latest player to receive an audition there. He's mostly been relegated to fourth-line duty since signing with the Bruins on Wednesday, but if he can quickly establish some chemistry with David Krejci and Milan Lucic, he could end up sticking there.

Bruins' Gagne Pots Goal In Defeat

News: Simon Gagne tallied a goal in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: The goal was Simon Gagne's first since Apr. 23, 2013, which incidentally enough, came against the Bruins. The 34-year-old Gagne is probably miscast as a fourth-liner for Boston, but with the team in need of an offensive spark in the early going, the opportunity could exist for him to ascend to a more prominent role with the team, specifically if he starts seeing more time with with David Krejci and Milan Lucic, who Gagne ended up skating with to close Thursday's game.

Gagne Debuts With Bruins

News: Making his season debut with the Bruins, Simon Gagne saw 12:13 worth of ice time and recorded two shots in Wednesday's shootout win over Detroit.
Analysis: Simon Gagne began the contest skating on the Bruins' fourth line, along with Daniel Paille and Ryan Spooner, was shifted late in the game to a trio featuring David Krejci and Milan Lucic. It remains to be seen which line Gagne -- who came close to netting the winning goal late in Wednesday's tilt -- will be a member of Thursday against Montreal, but if he ends up sticking with Krejci and Lucic either in that contest or down the road, the veteran winger would have an opportunity to carve out some fantasy utility with the B's.

Gagne Set To Debut With Bruins

News: Simon Gagne is on track to suit up Wednesday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: In his introduction to the Boston lineup on Wednesday, Simon Gagne is slated to work on the Bruins' fourth line, along with Daniel Paille and Ryan Spooner. The 34-year-old Gagne hasn't played in an NHL regular season game since 2012-2013, so a wait-and see approach is in order here, though from the Bruins' perspective, the team hopes that the veteran winger has enough left in the tank to help provide a much-needed spark up front.

Bruins Add Gagne To Mix

News: Simon Gagne skated on the Bruins' fourth line along with with Daniel Paille and Ryan Spooner at Tuesday's practice, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: Assuming he suits up Wednesday against the Red Wings, it looks like the Bruins will probably ease Simon Gagne (who did not play in the NHL last season) back into the mix. Down the road though, it's not out of the question that he'll get a chance to see action with David Krejci and Milan Lucic. For now, however, Seth Griffith is manning the right wing spot along with that duo.

Gagne Signs With Bruins

News: Simon Gagne agreed to a one-year, $600,000 contract with the Bruins on Tuesday, Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Simon Gagne spent training camp with the Bruins and did not make the cut; however, the team convinced him to stick around without a contract, and he was ultimately rewarded Tuesday. While the veteran winger's role out of the gate has yet to be clarified, the 1-3 Bruins could certainly use an offensive spark at this time. Gagne, however, has not seen action in a regular season NHL contest since the 2012-2013 campaign.

Bruins Keep Gagne Around

News: Simon Gagne will remain with the Bruins and travel with the team.
Analysis: Simon Gagne has been with the Bruins on a tryout, and while he hasn't signed a contract with the team thus far, the fact that he is being kept around by the Bruins suggests that a deal to bring the veteran winger officially on board could be struck before long.

Bruins Keep Gagne Around

News: Though Simon Gagne, who has been with the Bruins on a tryout, hasn't signed a contract with the team, he'll remain with the club for now, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: The report notes that GM Peter Chiarelli asked Simon Gagne to remain with the Bruins for now and continue to practice with the team, presumably to allow the B's to continue to evaluate the veteran forward, who did not play in the NHL last season.

Gagne Trying To Stick With Bruins

News: The Boston Herald suggests that Simon Gagne looks like a longshot to make the Bruins' final roster.
Analysis: That said, Simon Gagne remains with the Bruins heading into the weekend, presumably jostling with the likes of Jordan Caron, Craig Cunningham, David Pastrnak and Bobby Robins for one of the team's final open forward spots. "His skating has gotten better (through camp)," coach Claude Julien noted of the 34-year-old Gagne, who did not play in the NHL last season. "I think, like anybody else who's been off that long, maybe his timing and his playmaking and passing isn't there. Again, there are decisions that have to be made."

Gagne Hoping To Stick With Bruins

News: Simon Gagne scored an empty-net goal in Wednesday's 2-0 preseason win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Simon Gagne, who is with the Bruins on a tryout basis, indicated that he felt better out there Wednesday than he did in Tuesday's preseason opener, but at this stage, the veteran winger is simply trying to earn a chance to stick with the B's after missing all of last season with injuries.

Bruins To Give Gagne A Chance

News: Simon Gagne is slated to attend the Bruins' training camp on a tryout basis, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: The 34-year-old last saw NHL action in 2012-13, but with the Bruins dealing with cap issues and looking to establish winger depth, they'll give Simon Gagne a training-camp look and a chance to prove that he's healthy enough to contribute this coming season.

Gagne Remains Unsigned With Less Than Two Weeks To Camp

News: Simon Gagne remains unsigned with the less than two weeks to go before training camps open. There has been speculation both he and the Flyers would like to see him in orange and black, but the Flyers are both close to the cap and their 50-man roster limit.
Analysis: The Flyers have 49 guys under contract and the NHL allows 50. However, junior-aged players who are ineligible to play in the AHL and stay in junior don't count against the 50. If he returns to Philly, Simon Gagne would be a third-line checker and there isn't much fantasy value in that.

Flyers' Gagne May Return To Philly

News: Simon Gagne and the Flyers are having conversations about the winger returning to Philadelphia for the upcoming season, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren is having conversations with the agent for the 33-year-old forward, who had five goals and 11 points in 27 games with the Flyers last season. Philadelphia has limited cap space, so Simon Gagne's return will happen only if the price is right.

Flyers' Gagne Moved Up

News: Simon Gagne skated on the Flyers' top line Monday night against Montreal, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Philadelphia head coach Peter Laviolette has auditioned several forwards to skate on the left wing with first-line center Claude Giroux, Simon Gagne being the latest. He had an assist, two shots on net and plus-2 rating in 12:42 as the Flyers romped to a 7-3 win.

Gagne Starts Goal Streak

News: Simon Gagne picked up his second goal in as many games as the surging Flyers defeated the Leafs 5-3 on Thursday.
Analysis: Simon Gagne isn't exactly lighting the world on fire but the whole Flyer team has kicked it up a notch. If you are in a deep league and lost a forward (Bergeron or Lupul) then Gagne might be a good pick up.

Flyers' Gagne On Scoresheet

News: Simon Gagne assisted on Philadelphia's only goal in Friday's 2-1 shootout win over New Jersey on Friday, his second point in three games.
Analysis: Simon Gagne has three points in eight games since returning to the team that drafted him many years ago and has found himself making a small impact, albeit a much larger impact than what he was making in Los Angeles. Gagne won't light up the league, but he's a decent option in very deep leagues if it doesn't cost you much for his services.

Flyers' Gagne Scores Goal

News: Simon Gagne scored a power-play goal against the Sabres on Sunday.
Analysis: Simon Gagne has only two goals in 17 games this season, but both goals have come with the Flyers. However, unless he starts scoring more he's not going to be fantasy viable.

Gagne Lights The Lamp In Flyers Return

News: Simon Gagne potted a power-play goal in his return to the Flyers on Wednesday night.
Analysis: While playing 16 minutes Wednesday, Simon Gagne logged 19 shifts while firing four shots on goal. Considering that he was struggling to crack the lineup in Los Angeles prior to the trade, Gagne's opportunity for a top-six forward spot and power-play minutes should make him worth a look in many formats.

Flyers' Gagne In Action Wednesday

News: Simon Gagne will play for the Flyers against the Capitals on Wednesday, Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com reports.
Analysis: On Tuesday, Simon Gagne was traded back to Philadelphia, where he spent his first 10 NHL seasons. He'll skate on a line with Sean Couturier and Maxime Talbot.
