Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Armand Gaudreault
Left-winger Armand Gaudreault played the 1944-45 season with the Boston Bruins. He was a solid two-way forward who didn't back down from anyone even though he was only 155 pounds. He enjoyed success briefly in the AHL but was better known as a senior hockey standout.

Born in Lac St. Jean, Quebec Gaudreault was a top performer for four years with the Quebec Aces of the QSHL before joining Boston. He scored 15 goals on a Bruins club decimated by the loss of players to military service. Gaudreault proved to be most effective when he was partnered with Bill Thoms and J.P. Gladu. Following his experience in the NHL the clever forward recorded consecutive 20-goal seasons for the AHL's Hershey Bears. After spending the next two seasons in the AHL and with the Sherbrooke Saints and Alma Eagles of the QPHL, Gaudreault returned to the senior Aces for the last three years of his career before retiring in 1952.
