Amerks legend Dick Gamble dies at age 89
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) -- Stanley Cup champion and American Hockey League Hall of Famer Dick Gamble has died. He was 89.
The AHL's Rochester Americans announced his death Friday after learning from his family he died Thursday. Gamble had been living in Pittsford, New York.
Gamble won the Stanley Cup in 1953 as a member of the Montreal Canadiens and captured the AHL's Calder Cup three times with Rochester. The left wing is fourth on the AHL career list in goals (468) and fifth in points (892 points).
Gamble had 41 goals and 41 assists in 195 regular-season games over parts of NHL eight seasons with the Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks and Toronto Maple Leafs.
A Moncton, New Brunswick, native, he was inducted into the AHL's Hall of Fame in 2007. Last year, a diver found Gamble's AHL Hall of Fame ring at the bottom of a lake. Gamble didn't know he had lost it.
