Goaltender Paul Gauthier made one appearance for the Montreal Canadiens in 1937-38. During a career that lasted nearly two decades he was a successful puckstopper in the several minor pro and senior leagues.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba Gauthier played junior with the Winnipeg Monarchs then made his pro debut with the Pittsburgh Shamrocks of the IAHL in 1935-36. He then played with the AHA's Minneapolis Millers and the New Haven Eagles of the AHL for one year each.

Between 1938-39 and 1948-49, Gauthier played on a dozen different teams in five different leagues. He best performance was 1943-44 when he registered four shutouts and a 29-10-7 record while helping the Cleveland Barons finish at the top of the AHL's Western Division standings.
