Gagne willing to do 'whatever it takes' to help Bruins

Matt Kalman - Correspondent

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Simon Gagne knows all about comebacks.

Four years ago the forward earned his spot on the Boston Bruins short list of villains when he scored the goal that capped one of the greatest comebacks in Stanley Cup Playoffs history for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Now he's ready to take the next step in his comeback after a season out of the NHL, and the Bruins are hoping he can spark their comeback after a 1-3-0 start to the regular season.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli signed Gagne to a one-year contract worth a cap charge of $600,000 on Tuesday. Gagne is expected to make his Bruins debut Wednesday on the road against the Detroit Red Wings (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN).

Now Gagne just has to find his role.

"I don't know. Like my conversation with Peter was whatever it takes. I'll be whatever," Gagne said after the Bruins practiced at Ristuccia Arena on Tuesday. "If I have to be the extra guy, if I have to be on the fourth line or a guy that will replace some guys when things are not going well, or injuries, playing the PK, power play, whatever it takes. I'm here to help the team win and I'm really happy that I have a chance to get back into the League with a good team. So I'm open to everything."

TAMPA -- Anne Schleper, a defenseman on the United States women's hockey team that won a silver medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, was all smiles after finishing her practice with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday.

"It passed my expectations," Schleper said. "I tried not to have expectations coming in here but it was so fun. The guys were great. It was awesome."
