Bauer Hockey NAHL Defenseman of the Month: Nolan Gagnon, Amarillo Wranglers

Amarillo defenseman Nolan Gagnon had a great month of January after appearing in 8 games. The native of Metcalfe, ON, CAN combined for 13 points during the month, where he scored 4 goals and 9 assists while  maintaining a +9 rating. Gagnon, 20, was a major contributing factor on special teams, adding a power-play goal and 7 power-play assists. The University of Alaska-Anchorage commit  is the fifth top scoring defenseman in the NAHL this season with 31 points. "Nolan had a fantastic month of January,” Head Coach Ryan Anderson said. “He was able to earn his commitment to Alaska Anchorage and now this honor is icing on the cake and well deserved. His hard work and dedication to do things the right way was rewarded on the ice,” Anderson continued. “He was able to produce for our team offensively due to his skating and hockey sense. He scored big time goals and ran the Power Play that was a difference maker for our team this month."

“The boys played really well,” Nolan Gagnon said. “This would not have been possible without the guys in front of me. I am very appreciative of this award and want to thank the Wranglers organization and the fan base for all of their support.”
