Playing career[edit | edit source]

Gambrell grew up playing hockey in Kent, Washington for the Kent Valley Hockey Association thanks to his dad's roller hockey background.[1] In order to hone his skills in preparation for a possible college hockey career, he moved to Colorado at the age of 14to play junior hockey with the Colorado Thunderbirds of the T1EHL at the under-16 level. He was selected 11th overall in the 2012 USHL Futures draft by the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the United States Hockey League (USHL).

He played three seasons with the Fighting Saints before beginning his collegiate career with the University of Denver in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) in the 2015–16 season. He was selected by the San Jose Sharks in the second round, 60th overall, in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Following the 2017–18 season, in which Gambrell placed third in team scoring as a junior with 43 points in 41 games, Gambrell concluded his collegiate career by signing a two-year, entry-level contract with the San Jose Sharks on March 26, 2018.[2] He was immediately added to the Sharks playing roster, and made his NHL debut in a 4–2 defeat to the Dallas Stars on April 3, 2018.[3] He completed the regular season going scoreless in 3 games.

Approaching the 2018–19 season, on October 2, 2018, he was assigned to the San Jose Barracuda.[4] He was recalled five days later.[5]

Gambrell scored his first NHL goal in St. Louis as the Sharks only goal during the Blues' 5–1 Game 6 victory of the 2019 Western Conference Finals.[6]

He was re-signed by the Sharks to a two-year contract on July 11, 2019.[7]
