First pick of the Montreal Canadiens in the 1981 entry draft, Gilbert Delorme has had a great NHL career. The defenseman has accumulated more than 500 games with the Canadiens, Red Wings, Blues, Nordiques and Penguins, where he collected a total of 123 points from 1981 to 1995.
After his NHL playing career, he entered the world of coaching. He spent 9 seasons behind the hockey bench from 1992 to 2008, 6 years as an assistant and 3 years as head coach. He started in the IHL, before going to the QMJHL, the QSMHL and then the NAHL.
On November 15, 2008, his number 5 was retired at the Centre Georges-Vézina by his junior club, the Chicoutimi Saguenéens. During his phenomenal career in the QMJHL, Delorme accumulated 277 points in 213 regular season games and 37 points in 28 playoff games. This pretty exceptional feat for a defenseman has lead him to an induction into the QMJHL Hall of Fame in March 2010.
Today, he hosts a radio show on 91.9 Sports and is a panelist on RDS's "L'antichambre". He also gives a lot of space in his life to a social mission that is very close to his heart: being a foster family for children in difficulty.
