The hockey world, spanning the QJHL and CHL, is grappling with the loss of a young player whose influence reverberated profoundly.

The sudden and heart-wrenching news of Emile Gagne's passing has rippled through the very fabric of the community that held him close.

In the wake of the tragedy, a poignant quote speaks to the stark reality, "Emile Gagne, at the tender age of 19, has departed from us due to a tragic traffic accident."




Gagne's journey, so promising and full of potential, was tragically cut short. His impact was undeniable, felt by teammates, fans, and those who knew him.

In the recent season, Gagne showcased his talents as a vital part of both the Princeville Titan and Joliette Predateurs in the QJHL.

Turning back the clock to the 2016-2017 season, Gagne's path was marked by significant moments. He left his mark with the Mauricie Estacades Bantam AAA R, Collège Laflèche Dragons, Princeville Titans, and Joliette Prédateurs in the QJHL.

Despite his youth, the 19-year-old Gagne hailed from Trois-Rivières, Quebec. His unbreakable bond with his closest teammates was forged in the early days of their hockey journeys.

In a gesture of respect and tribute, a GoFundMe campaign has been set up to honor Emile Gagne's memory and provide relief from unforeseen financial challenges.

While Emile Gagne may no longer grace the ice, his influence on hockey and the lives he touched remains a lasting testament to his spirit.
