In his final OHL season with the Kichener Rangers Gilbert Dionne scored over 100 points and registered 23 points in 17 playoff games. His performance caught the attention of scouts, but because he was a 19-year-old, teams were wary about using him with a high draft pick. Finally, the Canadiens selected him in round four. He was named to the NHL All Rookie Team in 1992, and in 1993 he won the Stanley Cup with Montreal. As a two way player, he would score 20 goals in a season twice.
