Drafted: TOR / 1984 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 2nd (25th overall)
Defenseman Todd Gill entered his 18th NHL season in 2001-02 as defensive insurance on the defending Stanley Cup champion Colorado Avalanche. A more offensive blueliner early in his career, he played a simplified positional game to elongate his big league tenure.

Born in Cardinal, Ontario, Gill played junior B with the hometown Broncos and the Brockville Braves before joining the OHL's Windsor Spitfires. He was drafted 25th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1984. The young rearguard played most of the 1984-85 season in junior but was given a 10-game look by the dreadful Leafs.

Gill spent most of the 1985-86 season with the AHL's St. Catharines Saints then made the Leafs out of training camp the next year. He scored 31 points in 1986-87 and remained a regular with the club through the 1995-96 season. Gill thrived under coach Pat Burns and recorded 11 goals and 43 points in 1992-93. He also provided mobility and grit on the team as they reached the semifinals in 1993 and 1994.

Prior to the 1996-97 season, the veteran netminder was traded to the San Jose Sharks for Jamie Baker and a draft pick. He also spent time lending experience and depth in St. Louis, Phoenix and Detroit before coming to terms with Colorado in July, 2001. The veteran rearguard went on to play only one season in Colorado before joining the Chicago Blackhawks in the summer of 2002. In his only season with the Blackhawks organization, Gill split his time with the parent club and its AHL affiliate in Norfolk before joining the AHL's Springfield Falcons.

In the summer of 2003, Gill joined his ninth NHL franchise when he signed with the Florida Panthers. However, Gill was released from the club in October and would travel overseas to compete in 25 games with Lausitzer Fuchse Weisswasser in Germany. Following his stint in Germany, Gill officially retired from hockey.
