Aaron Gagnon has been assigned back to the Texas Stars today after playing in one of the top 5 games I've ever seen as a Stars fan last night in Dallas. Gagnon played 8:32 of ice time, including 2:03 on the penalty kill. He won all 3 faceoffs he took and had 2 shots on goal and 4 hits in 14 shifts. I don't know too much about Aaron's hockey history, but I'm guessing last night was a memorable one for him.
The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has assigned center Aaron Gagnon to the Texas Stars, Dallas’ primary minor league affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Gagnon, 23, appeared in two games for Dallas this season, recording two shots. He was recalled on Wednesday and played in last night’s home finale for Dallas. Gagnon leads the Texas Stars in scoring with 58 points (27g, 31a) through 77 games. The 5-11, 186-pound center also ranks first on the club in plus/minus with a +19 rating. Last season he played for the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL, collecting eight goals and 11 assists in 61 games. The Quesnel, British Columbia native was signed by Dallas as a free agent February 2, 2007.
