2011-12: Gogol had an okay rookie season in the AHL with Worcester and played the energy role with some success. He scored 6 goals along with 4 assists and was minus-three while taking 167 penalty minutes (19 fighting majors) in 53 games. The physical winger missed some time due to injuries over the year but didn't change his style of play.
Gogol is an aggressive agitator and a tough competitor who plays the energy role well and will stand up to anyone. He has the tools to be a useful two-way player but needs to add more strength, better balance on his skates and learn to pick his fights. The scrappy winger needs to reduce the foolish penalties and work on improving his overall game. He projects as a third or fourth line checker, energy role player at the NHL level at best.
Gogol will play his second season in the AHL with Worchester where he needs to play a better two-way game while adding to the team's offense and reduce his needless penalties that hurt the team.
