Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- David Gosselin
Right-winger David Gosselin hoped to make a strong impression at the Nashville Predators training camp in 2001 after recovering from a serious injury. An offensively gifted player, he put up impressive numbers in junior and the minors and hoped to follow through with the same success as a big leaguer.

Born in Levis, Quebec, Gosselin was a star in the QAAA with the Richelieu Riverains before joining the Sherbrooke Faucons of the QMJHL in 1994-95. After a solid rookie season, he was taken 78th overall by the New Jersey Devils in the Entry Draft. He returned to junior where he enjoyed a productive career though he never ended up getting a chance to prove himself in Jersey.

After scoring 46 goals for the Chicoutimi Sagueneens in 1997-98, Gosselin signed as a free agent with the Nashville Predators. He spent most of the next years as a gritty goal scorer with the IHL's Milwaukee Admirals. He began the next season with the club before he was felled by a serious knee injury that caused him to miss several months of action. Gosselin recovered and hoped to resume his quest to be an NHL regular in 2001-02.
