Guy Andre Hebert (French pronunciation: ​[ɡi eˈbɛʁ]; born January 7, 1967) is a retired American professional ice hockey goaltender. He is a graduate of La Salle Institute in Troy and Hamilton College in Clinton, New York. Despite being an American, he used the French pronunciation of his first and last name. During his NHL career he played for the St. Louis Blues, Mighty Ducks of Anaheim and New York Rangers.

NHL career[edit]

Guy Andre Hebert was drafted by St. Louis in 1987, when he was a sophomore at Hamilton College. Hebert played in the minors, for the Peoria Rivermen, until he was called up to the St. Louis Blues in December 1991. Hebert was the first pick of the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the 1993 NHL Expansion Draft; his head coach was Gary Waterman who coached Hebert in the 1990 Goodwill games, where they both helped the United States of America capture a silver medal. Hebert played with the Ducks organization until midway through the 2000–01 NHL season, making him the last of the original Ducks with the team, after which he was placed on waivers and the New York Rangers claimed him. He played in thirteen games for the Rangers before retiring in 2001. Hebert still ranks 1st or 2nd in every major goalkeeping statistic of the Ducks franchise. Aside from his NHL career, Hebert also was selected to the United States hockey team for the 1994 World Championships, the US team that won the 1996 World Cup, and the 1998 Olympic team in Nagano, Japan. Hebert was selected to the 1997 NHL All star game.

International career[edit]

Hebert appeared for the Team USA in the 1994 World Championship, in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey and in the 1998 Winter Olympics. He played six games in the 1994 World Championship, reaching the semifinals, and one game in the World Cup, winning the gold medal – his fellow goaltender Mike Richter was awarded the tournament MVP. Although in the final roster for the 1998 Olympics, Hebert didn't play in the tournament.
