The Philadelphia Flyers have reacquired winger Simon Gagne from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a conditional fourth round pick.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: RDS’s Renaud Lavoie recently reported Gagne could be dealt. The 32-year-old left wing spent most of his NHL career with the Flyers, departing
in July 2011 via unrestricted free agency via trade to Tampa Bay in 2010. His career has been hampered by concussions, but evidently that didn’t bother Flyers GM Paul Holmgren. Gagne is healthy this season but seeing limited playing time with the Kings. The Flyers are struggling offensively, so Holmgren is gambling Gagne has enough left in the tank to give his club a boost.
