Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Troy Gamble
Goaltender Troy Gamble was selected in the second round, 25th overall in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks. He played two years of major junior with the Medicine Hat Tigers before being traded to the Spokane Chiefs midway through the 1986-87 season. Gamble was also called up to play for one game with Vancouver that year. He returned to Spokane in 1987-88 as the team's overage player to obtain more playing experience before playing in his pro rookie season.

In 1988-89 he played five games in the NHL with the Canucks but his breakthrough season occurred in 1990-91 when he appeared in 47 games earning an official 16-16-6 record. He played another 19 games for Vancouver in 1991-92 which was the last time he played in the league.

Gamble continued to tend goal for various minor-league teams, retiring after the 1995-96 season as a member of the Houston Aeros.
