Philadelphia Flyer Simon Gagne is continuing to produce, even in the off-season! The 29-year-old forward welcomed his first child on Tuesday, a boy Simon and wife Karine have named Matthew. Just two days later, Simon flew to Nashville for hip surgery, and on Friday he returned home to his new-found family of three.

“It feels like a dream,” Simon admitted. “I don’t know if I really realize it yet.”

Matthew is the first child for the couple.
