Gagne re-joined the Kings just over a week ago after an extended absence due to concussion-related issues. He was not initially projected to play in the Stanley Cup Finals, but will join the rotation for game three of the series, which the Kings lead 2-0. Gagne has scored seven goals and has chipped in 10 assists in 34 games for the Kings this season. He has not appeared in a game since December 26.
Game three takes place at 8p.m. ET tonight in Los Angeles.
