Gagne makes Bruins debut in 800th game

DETROIT -- Simon Gagne hadn't played in a NHL game since April 27, 2013, and when he made his debut for the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night at Joe Louis Arena, the 34-year-old forward played well. Gagne logged 12:13 of ice time in his 800th career NHL regular-season game. He started on the Bruins' fourth line with Ryan Spooner and Daniel Paille, but Bruins coach Claude Julien was impressed enough with Gagne's play to give him some shifts late in the game on the team's top line with Milan Lucic and David Krejci.

Bruins Notebook: Simon Gagne shows he could be answer

DETROIT — Problematic questions remain about the makeup of the Bruins forward lines. Potentially, one answer began to emerge last night, as veteran winger Simon Gagne played his first game as a Bruin. Gagne, who was out of hockey last season, was a training camp tryout and this week signed a one-year, $600,000 contract.

Gagne to make Bruins debut tonight

DETROIT -- Simon Gagne will play his 800th career NHL game Wednesday night when he debuts for the Boston Bruins against the Detroit Red Wings. It will also be his first game since April 27, 2013. Despite missing the entire 2013-2014 season due to injury, the 34-year-old forward was invited to Boston’s training camp on a tryout basis. On Tuesday, he signed a one-year, one-way contract worth $600,000 and he’ll be in the lineup Wednesday against the Red Wings.

Can Simon Gagne Be Part of the Answer for the Bruins?

The 34-year-old forward isn't going to fix all the Bruins problems, but perhaps signing Gagne can prove to be a piece of the puzzle that helps turn the B's around.

Bruins Notebook: Simon Gagne finding his game

It’s getting close to decision time for the Bruins on whether or not they want to sign Simon Gagne.At the start of the regular season, the two sides agreed the veteran winger would stick around for a week while general manager Peter Chiarelli continued the evaluation process, though Gagne said there’s no hard and fast deadline.One thing not working in his favor is the lack of practice time.

Gagne still hopes to earn Bruins roster spot

BOSTON -- This is unfamiliar territory for Simon Gagne. Now entering his 14th NHL season, the 34-year-old veteran forward finds himself waiting for a job. He attended Boston Bruins training camp on a tryout agreement, and after a long conversation with general manager Peter Chiarelli when camp concluded, Gagne will remain with the Bruins as a non-roster player in hopes of earning a contract within the next week or two. He can practice and travel with the team while he continues to regain his form after missing the last season and a half due to injury.

Gagne still has chance to catch on with B's

BOSTON -- Prior to the announcement of defenseman Johnny Boychuck's trade to the New York Islanders on Saturday, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli met with another one of his players to discuss their immediate future. Simon Gagne, the 14-year veteran who joined the Bruins during training camp on a tryout agreement, spoke with Chiarelli about his prospects of making the team. For his part, Chiarelli told Gagne he wanted him to stick around. As for Gagne?
