The third Hawkesbury Hawks player has committed to the NCAA as 19-year-old Rory Gagnon will join NCAA Div III Hamilton College next season. Gagnon, who recently finished his first and only season in the CCHL is a player who has a great understanding of the game, he isn’t the biggest guy but he knows what he has to do in order to bring success to whichever club he represents. He is a great leader whose hard work and determination put him in position to pick up loose pucks and pitch in offensively. He also has the hockey sense and smarts to be put on the ice in all situations.
The 5-11, 180 lb Pointe-Claire, Quebec native suited up for Millbrook Prep School of the New England Prep League during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years. He would captain the Mustangs during his final season before making the jump to Junior.
In his only season of Junior A hockey, Gagnon would finish 8th in scoring for the Hawkesbury Hawks as he chipped in with 13 goals and 31 points in 49 games before adding another 2 goals in 6 playoff games.
