Though small in stature, especially for a defenseman, Gagne plays a well-rounded two-way game. Not one to back down from a challenge, he makes a good first pass and works hard in all situations. On the powerplay, he has a great shot and moves the puck well. In his own zone, he helps keep the front of the net clear and works hard in the corners. However, his size is definitely a major limitation.
Signed as a free agent by the Anaheim Ducks in March, 2013.
