Biographical Info

Through his 17 seasons with the Buffalo Sabres, Gilbert Perreault (HHOF ’90) was one of hockey’s most dazzling players. Drafted first overall in 1970, his 38 goals and 71 points were a rookie record and he easily won the Calder Trophy. He improved in his sophomore year and was chosen for the 1972 Summit Series. Once team mates Rick Martin and Rene Robert joined him, the French Connection was born. After receiving the Lady Byng in 1973, the French Connection scored an astonishing 113 points together and reached the Stanley Cup final in 1975. He recorded a personal high of 113 points in 1976 and played in that year’s Canada Cup, as well as in 1981. He became Buffalo’s captain until his retirement in 1987, finishing with 512 goals and 1326 points.
