In March 1961, ROD GILBERT suffered what many felt would be a career-ending back injury while playing Junior with the Guelph Royals. That season, despite missing part of the season, ROD led the OHA in goals scored (54) and points earned (103). But GILBERT battled back, and in spite of chronic back problems for the remainder of his 16 season NHL career, all played with the New York Rangers, ROD GILBERT had a career that earned him entry into the Hockey Hall of Fame. GILBERT would retire during the 1977-78 season, having scored 406 goals, 615 assists and 1021 points. In 1975-76, GILBERT followed his linemate JEAN RATELLE to the wards podium to receive the MASTERTON TROPHY for his perseverance and dedication to hockey. He scored 86 points that season. Throughout his outstanding career, the right winger was a First Team All-Star once, was selected to the Second Team once and finished in the top ten scoring four times.
