Hagel played collegiate hockey with Princeton University in the ECAC conference and was undrafted .Upon completion of his senior season with the Tigers, Hagel made his professional debut in the 2008–09 season with the Fresno Falcons of the ECHL.

On May 8, 2011 the St. Louis Blues announced that they had signed Hagel as a free-agent to a one-year contract.[1]

After only seven games with the Blues AHL affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen, due to injuries, Hagel was then signed a one-year contract to remain in the AHL with the Hamilton Bulldogs for the 2012–13 season. In 67 games with the lowly Bulldogs, Hagel scored 2 goals and 6 points whilst recording 172 penalty minutes.

On August 19, 2013, Hagel's journeyman career continued in the AHL, agreeing as a free agent to a one-year contract with the Portland Pirates.[2] Hagel joined his sixth AHL team on July 16, 2014, agreeing to a one-year deal with the Charlotte Checkers.[3]

Hagel added a veteran presence to the Checkers and played three seasons with the club before announcing his retirement from professional hockey on July 21, 2017.

Throughout his tenure in the AHL, Hagel's efforts in the community were recognized as he was a 7-time winner of his club's Man of the Year Award. He was the recipient of the 
Yanick Dupre Memorial Award in 2015.[4]
