Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Gaston Therrien
Defenseman Gaston Therrien played a few games for the Quebec Nordiques in the early 80s. He was a top point producer in junior whose game was better suited to the larger ice surfaces of Europe.

The Nords took the Montreal native 129th overall after he accumulated 264 points in three QMJHL seasons with the Quebec Remparts. In 1980 he was named to the league's first all-star team after registering 125 points. Therrien was recall on occasion during his first three pro seasons but was chiefly a minor leaguer who had trouble matching his output as an amateur.

Between 1983 and 1986, the crafty blueliner did not play. He came out of retirement in 1986-87 to compete for Switzerland's SC Rapperswill-Jona. Therrien totaled 69 goals in three years with the club then retired for good in 1989.
