Jean-Gabriel Pageau (born on November 11, 1992 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently a member of the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL).
He was selected by the Senators in the fourth round (96th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
Born in Ottawa and raised in neighbouring Hull, Quebec, Jean-Gabriel played junior hockey with the Gatineau Olympiques and Chicoutimi Saguenéens of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (LHJMQ/QMJHL).
Selected by his hometown Ottawa Senators in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Jean-Gabriel began his pro career in 2012-13 with the AHL's Binghamton Senators, registering 7 goals and 29 points in 69 games before being called up to Ottawa on April 10, 2013. He stayed in Ottawa for the remainder of the season, registering two goals and 4 points in nine regular season games.
On May 5, 2013, Jean-Gabriel scored a hat-trick in game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-finals series as the Senators defeated the Montreal Canadiens 6-1. In doing so, he became just the second Senators' player to register a hat trick in the playoffs, with Daniel Alfredsson being the first.
Following the season, Jean-Gabriel was honoured by his hometown. On June 18, 2013, he signed the official guestbook at the start of the Gatineau city council meeting and received a plaque. Gatineau Mayor Marc Bureau called him "a true ambassador for the city."
