A well-travelled 29-year-old by the time he joined the Montreal Canadiens in 1926-27, Art Gagné spent only three seasons with the Habs but came to play literally every night, never once missing a game during his time with the club.

The long road to Montreal included amateur stops with numerous teams in both his hometown of Ottawa and Quebec City followed by a six year stint as a pro in western Canada.

The 5-foot-7, 160-pound right winger fit right in and proved that he was NHL material with 14 goals and three assists in his initial campaign, more than respectable numbers over the 44-game schedule. The gritty little forward also picked up 42 penalty minutes, not taking kindly to opponents who took liberties, no matter their size.

In 1927-28, while playing alongside linemates Howie Morenz and Aurele Joliat, Gagné put up the biggest numbers of his career. The shifty but short-tempered forward found the twine behind enemy goaltenders 20 times that year, good for third on the team and sixth among all NHLers. Eleven assists stood him seventh in the league in that department and, with 75 minutes of penalty time, Gagné was also ranked among the league’s most penalized players.

After slipping to a lacklustre 10-point performance in 1928-29, the veteran’s last with the Canadiens, Gagné was sold to the Bruins where he played in a handful of games. The forward was then moved to Ottawa, where he posted a 19-goal season in 1930-31 for the last-place Senators.

Gagné’s final NHL uniform was that of the 1931-32 Detroit Cougars, for whom he made 13 appearances in 1931-32. Heading back out west after his NHL tenure ended and rejoining the Edmonton Eskimos, Gagné spent the bulk of the next four seasons with them and retired after the 1935-36 schedule wound down.
