Gilbert Dionne, the younger brother of NHL hall-of-famer Marcel Dionne, was the fourth-round draft pick of the Montreal Canadiens in 1990, selected 81st overall. Dionne was somewhat of a late bloomer in junior, although he did have an excellent final season of major junior action, scoring 48 goals and 57 assists for 105 points with the OHL’s Kitchener Rangers in 1989-90. Dionne led the Rangers all the way to the Memorial Cup final in Hamilton that year, where they lost in double overtime to Eric Lindros and the Oshawa Generals. During that 17-game playoff run, Dionne scored 13 goals and 10 assists for 23 points. His performance caught the attention of scouts and he was drafted in the fourth round by the Montreal Canadiens. In 1992-93, Dionne dressed for 75 games, scoring 20 goals and 28 assists for 48 points. During the playoffs, Dionne raised his game to another level, playing sound two-way hockey, scoring six goals and six assists in 20 games as the Canadiens defeated the Los Angeles Kings to win the Stanley Cup four games to one.
