Bearcat Bytes: David Gagnon

#9 David Gagnon
20-year-old Forward
Halifax, N.S.
6’0”, 180 lbs

Bearcat-of-the-Week honours went to forward, David Gagnon. His two goals in Saturday’s 4-2 win over the South Shore Lumberjacks helped the Bearcats snap a five-game losing streak stretching back to December. This was his fourth game since his rights were acquired from the Carleton Place Canadians early in January.

Following two seasons with the Halifax Hawks Major Bantams, he elected to play two seasons with the Citadel Phoenix High School team. Next up was one productive year with the Dartmouth Major Midgets where he picked up 43 points in 36 games. He played the 2018-2019 as a rookie with the Carleton Place Canadians. Last year, he scored 28 and assisted on 32 others to be among the leaders with the Canadians. Originally a 2017 Truro Bearcat pick, he chose to return to the East Coast to complete his junior eligibility. Quick with his feet and hands, he’s expected to have an immediate impact on the Bearcat go-to line.

The Bearcats are at home for a pair of games this weekend. Friday, the Valley Wildcats are at the RECC. Saturday, Yarmouth is in town. Fans are permitted to attend. Watch for Ticket information.
