Yes, THAT Simon Gagne

Mike Stobe

Renaud Lavoie of Quebec's TVA sports tweeted this a few moments ago.

For those Bruins fans who haven't blacked the end of the 2009-2010 season from their memory, you'll recall that Simon Gagne is the former Philadelphia Flyer who stuck a dagger in it during Game 7 of the second round of the playoffs:

Oooh. still painful.

Gagne bounced from Philly after their run to the Stanley Cup finals to Tampa Bay, a team that made the Eastern Conference Finals against the Bruins in 2011. From there, he was traded to the LA Kings, where he won a Cup in 2012, before returning to the Flyers partway through the shortened 2012-2013 season. He did not play in the NHL in 2013-2014, and only managed five goals and 11 assists in 12-13.

The 34-year-old left-winger might well be past his prime, but it could be worth the Bruins at least taking a look at him in training camp.
