Aaron Gagnon clears Waivers, Will join IceCaps

From TSN’s Hockey Insider, Bob McKenzie (via Twitter):

WPG puts Aaron Gagnon on waiver. / WPG’s Gagnon was on injured reserve to start the season. Healthy now, needs waivers to be sent to AHL.

Gagnon, a 5’10”, 185lb, 25-year-old centre, has yet to play a game with the Winnipeg Jets this season because he has been recovering from an injury he suffered this past season when he was part of the Dallas Stars organization.

In 222 AHL games (with the Iowa Stars, Grand Rapids Griffins, and most recently the Texas Stars) he has registered 49 goals and 66 assists for a total of 115 points (0.52ppg).

Scouting reports have described Gagnon as a defensively-minded forward with a knack for winning faceoffs. It should be interesting to see where Gagnon would fit in the current IceCaps lineup.

*UPDATE* from Ken Wiebe (@WiebeSunSports) of the Winnipeg Sun:

#winnipegjets announce C Aaron Gagnon has been assigned to St johns IceCaps after clearing waivers on Friday.
