Flyers Acquire LW Simon Gagne From Los Angeles
The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired left wing Simon Gagne from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, previously acquired from Phoenix, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

“Simon is an experienced veteran who will help us in a lot of areas,” Holmgren said in making the announcement. “We are glad to have him back.”

Gagne, who turns 33 on Friday (2/29/80), returns to the Flyers after two years away from the organization. He was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning on June 19, 2010 in exchange for D Matt Walker and a fourth-round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, which the Flyers used to select current Phantoms LW Marcel Noebels.

After posting 40 points in 63 games during the 2010-11 season with the Lightning, Gagne signed with the Los Angeles Kings as a free agent, where he appeared in 34 regular season games and four playoff games to help the Kings win the Stanley Cup last year.

In 10 seasons with the Flyers, Gagne scored 259 goals and 265 assists for 524 points and 278 penalty minutes in 664 career regular season games. He ranks ninth on the Flyers’ all-time list in goals (259) and 10th in points (524) and games played (664), while placing fourth in both goals and points among left wings in Flyers history.

In 90 career Stanley Cup Playoff games with the Flyers, he recorded 32 goals and 15 assists for 47 points, ranking eighth all-time in Flyers playoff history in goals (32) and tied for seventh in game-winning goals (6).

Over the course of his 10 seasons in Philadelphia, Gagne led the team in goals on three occasions (2001-02, 2005-06 & 2006-07) and twice in points (2005-06 & 2006-07). He has also been recipient of the Bobby Clarke Trophy, as the team MVP, on two occasions (2005-06 & 2006-07), while also being named to the mid-season NHL All-Star game twice (2000-01 & 2006-07).

A native of Ste. Foy, Quebec, Gagne was selected by the Flyers in the first round (22nd overall) of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft
