A solid two-way forward, Brent Gilchrist hoped to add depth and experience to the powerful Detroit Red Wings in 2001-02. Since making his NHL debut in 1988-89, he has embraced offensive and checking roles with equal enthusiasm.

Born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Brent Gilchrist starred in the WHL with the Kelowna Wings and Spokane Chiefs. Chosen 79th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 1985, Gilchrist returned to junior where he recorded consecutive 40-goal seasons. During his rookie season in 1988-89, Gilchrist played smart hockey and helped Montreal reach the Stanley Cup final. He continued to serve as a reliable player defensively for another two years before breaking out offensively with 23 goals in 1991-92. A few months later he was part of the package sent to the Edmonton Oilers for forward Vincent Damphousse.

Before the end of the 1992-93 season Gilchrist was traded to the Minnesota North Stars and remained with the franchise when it relocated to Dallas a few months later. Gilchrist received plenty of ice time as a checker and offensive sparkplug under coaches Bob Gainey and Ken Hitchcock.

In the summer of 1997, Gilchrist signed as a free agent with the Detroit Red Wings and helped the club win its second straight Stanley Cup. After missing the most of the next two seasons recovering from a serious hernia operation. The veteran forward rebounded in 2000-01 with a solid defensive performance in 60 games for the Wings and returned to the Lone Star state midway through the 2001-02 season.

Following a brief stint with the Stars, Gilchrist signed as a free agent with the Nashville Predators in the summer of 2002 and went on to play a mere 41 games after suffering a back injury forcing him to retire from the game.
