Learn More about Gilbert Perreault:
Gilbert Perreault is an NHL Hall of Famer that spent his entire 17 season career with the Buffalo Sabres. Perreault played with the Sabres from their inaugural season leading the team in scoring with 38 goals and 34 assists to win the Calder Trophy for Rookie of the Year. Known as one of the most gifted playmakers of all time, Perreault was the center of the high scoring “French Connection” line, with wingers Rick Martin and Rene Roberts. The exciting trio were the top three goal scorers for the Sabres as well as top 10 overall in the NHL. Gilbert Perreault was not only a gifted stickhandler but a gentleman on the ice, winning the Lady Byng Trophy in 1973. Unfortunately, the closest he would ever come to the Stanley Cup was in 1975 when they reached the Finals before being defeated by the Philadelphia Flyers.
Internationally, Perreault was a part of Team Canada and played in the 1972 Summit Series. He also played in the 1976 Canada Cup Series with fellow French Canadian Guy Lafleur and Marcel Dionne as his wingers. In the 1981 Canada Cup, he played alongside the Great One, Wayne Gretzky.
After his retirement as a player, he was inducted into the Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame in 1989 and into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1990. The same year, his number 11 was the first number retired by the Sabres and Perreault was the only Sabre to ever wear #11.
