Gilles Gilbert (born March 31, 1949 in Saint-Esprit, Quebec) is a retired former ice hockey goaltender who was drafted in the third round of the 1969 NHL Amateur Draft from the London Knights. He played for the Minnesota North Stars and Detroit Red Wings, but most notably for the Boston Bruins, as their starter for nearly half of the later 1970s.
Gilbert played the first game of his 416 game NHL career on February 8, 1970, losing 6-3 to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
He played in the NHL between 1969 and 1983 and retired with a 3.27 GAA. In the 1973-74, he was traded to the Bruins as a replacement for Gerry Cheevers who had gone to the WHA, and helped the team to the 1974 Stanley Cup Finals. From 1976 to 1980, he teamed with Gerry Cheevers to form one of the best goaltending duos in the NHL, taking the Bruins to the 1977 and 1978 Stanley Cup Finals and being runner-ups for the Vezina Trophy in 1980. Gilbert holds the NHL record for most consecutive wins by a goaltender with 17 which was accomplished during the 1975–76 NHL season. He currently resides in Quebec City and enjoys golf.
