Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Gary Dineen
Centre Gary Dineen played four games with the Minnesota North Stars in 1968-69. He was a fine playmaker who starred as an amateur and had a decent minor pro career.

The Montreal native played high school hockey in Toronto with the St. Michael's College and Neil McNeil. In 1963-64 he spent a bit of time with the Toronto Marlboros then represented Canada when it finished fourth at the 1964 Innsbruck Olympics. The next year he played with the University of British Columbia before playing for Canada at the 1965 World Championships.

In the mid-60s Dineen continued with his commitment to the national team and won a bronze medal at the World Championships in 1967 and the 1968 Grenoble Olympics. The veteran pivot was traded to the North Stars by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1967 then recorded an assist in four games during the 1968-69 season. He spent the rest of the year in the CHL with the Memphis South Stars then bounced around the minors until retiring in 1971.
