Dick Gamble first attracted the attention of the Canadiens organization with an outstanding 1950-51 season as a member of Punch Imlach’s QSHL Quebec Aces, making his initial NHL appearance with Montreal that same season.

The Moncton, NB native would play 194 other NHL games in eight different seasons over the next sixteen years, all but 17 while sporting the bleu-blanc-rouge.

Quickly adapting to life in the NHL, Gamble scored 23 goals as a rookie in 1951-52. One of five Habs to break the 20 goal barrier, he finished the year in sixth spot among Canadiens scorers.

Asked to assume a more defensive role the next season, the 6-foot, 177-poind forward put his skills to use preventing goals rather than trying to pot them, a personal sacrifice that paid dividends as Montreal went on to capture the Stanley Cup with Gamble recording the only playoff goal of his career along the way.

After playing 32 games with the Canadiens in 1953-54 Gamble briefly wore a Chicago sweater, making 14 appearances as a Blackhawk before returning to Montreal for the playoffs at season’s end.

Dressing for 12 games in 1955-56, his last in a Montreal sweater, Gamble spent the next 15 years in the AHL, a perennial All-Star and multiple Calder Cup winner with the Rochester Americans, he carved out a career that led to enshrinement in the AHL Hall of Fame in 2007.

Gamble made a pair of appearances with the 1965-66 Maple Leafs and played his final NHL game with them the next season.
