Team Canada # 33
The first 1970 draft choice of the Buffalo Sabres, Gilbert Perrault became team’s franchise player for 17 seasons. Arguably one of the biggest talents in the NHL history, he was centered between Rick Martin and Rene Robert on the famous “French Connection” Line. All three forwards were great skaters and strong individual players that loved to play fast crisscrossing style frequently compared to the European one. Aside from slick skating and team leadership, Perrault was a great playmaker known for his outstanding mastery of 1-on-1 tricks.
