Netminder Andre Gill played five games for the Boston Bruins in 1967-68. Measuring only 5'7" and 145lbs., he utilized quick reflexes to keep enemy shooters at bay.
Born in Sorel, Quebec, Gill played junior with the local Royals then turned pro with the AHL's Hershey Bears in 1962-63. He spent most of the next decade in Hershey apart from a brief appearance with Boston and five games with the CHL's Minneapolis Bruins. His best performance in the minors came 1966-67 when he led the AHL with four shutouts and won 28 games for Hershey. He was named to the AHL first all-star team and was the recipient of the Harry "Hap" Holmes Memorial Award for allowing the fewest goals in the league.
In 1972-73 he suited up for the Chicago Cougars of the newly founded WHA and was the back up to...for a little over a year. Gill then spent time in the NAHL with the Long Island Cougars and on the Southern League's Hampton Gulls and Richmond Wildcats before retiring in 1977. The highlight of this period for him was leading the SHL with a 2.99 goals against average and making the league's first all-star team in 1975.
