Gregory Scott Gilbert (born January 22, 1962) is a retired former professional ice hockey player who played 15 seasons in the National Hockey League before retiring from his playing career to become a coach. Gilbert was the head coach of the Calgary Flames.
During his career, he played for the New York Islanders, Chicago Blackhawks, New York Rangers and St. Louis Blues. After a sixteen season NHL career, Gilbert became a head coach, and has also coached the Worcester IceCats of the AHL, the Mississauga IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League and the Calgary Flames of the NHL. He is also a former head coach of the Toronto Marlies in the American Hockey League, and recently fired from the position of head coach of the Adirondack Phantoms.
On Friday, June 5, 2009, Gilbert was relieved of his coaching duties as his contract was not renewed by the Toronto Maple Leafs. In Gilbert's third and final season with the Marlies, the team went 39–29–5–7 in the regular season, and then went on to lose in six games to the Manitoba Moose in the North Division semifinal.
On July 28, 2009, Gilbert was named the head coach of the newly formed Adirondack Phantoms, taking over for John Paddock. The Phantoms dismal 2–10–1 record to start to the 2010–11 AHL season resulted in Gilbert being fired from his position as head coach. On November 8, 2010 it was announced that Gilbert had been relieved of his duties as Adirondack's head coach, and that the assistant general manager, John Paddock, would be interim head coach until a permanent replacement could be found.
When Greg Gilbert won the Stanley Cup with the Rangers in 1994, his surname on the back of his uniform inspired nostalgic dreams for Ranger fans who always wished that Rod Gilbert could have won one.
