Simon Gagne's leave of absence is because his dad has cancer. Craig Cunningham recalled.

Fuck cancer.

So Renaud Lavoie from TVA in Montreal just tweeted these three tweets about SImon Gagne's leave of absence.

All the best to Gagne and his family. Fuck cancer.

Relatedly, Craig Cunningham has been recalled from Providence. Seems pithy when faced with the reality of this situation, but we're here to cover the team, after all. Cunningham may skate on the fourth line with Daniel Paille and Gregory Campbell tomorrow night in Gagne's place. We hope to see Gagne back but only when he's ready.
