In her second season of Provincial Women's Hockey League (PWHL) hockey, Gabel captured a silver medal with the Toronto Jr. Aeros at the 2014 Ontario Women's Hockey Association championships (Intermediate AA level). For the 2014–15 PWHL season, Gabel moved on to the Oakville Jr. Hornets, coached by Bradi Cochrane. Logging 37 points in the regular season, which ranked tenth in the PWHL, Gabel gained a bronze medal at the 2015 PWHL championships.
Joining the Clarkson Golden Knights in 2015–16, Gabel captured the team's Rookie of the Year Award, while earning a place on the ECAC Conference All-Rookie Team. Reaching the NCAA Frozen Four, Gabel paced all Golden Knights freshmen in scoring, while ranking second in the NCAA for goals scored by a freshman.
Gabel's sophomore season with the Golden Knights culminated with an NCAA Frozen Four championship, as the Golden Knights defeated the Wisconsin Badgers in the finals. Named to the 2017 ECAC All-Tournament Team, Gabel would also tie for fifth overall nationally in regular season power play goals.
As a Junior (2017–18), Gabel was named a First-Team All-American, while finishing as a Top-3 Finalist for the Patty Kazmaier Award, which was won by Daryl Watts. Also named the ECAC's Top Forward, Gabel would contribute towards the Golden Knights winning their second straight NCAA Frozen Four tournament. Statistically, her plus/minus ranking of +58 paced all skaters in the NCAA. The following season (2018–19), Gabel would capture the Kazmaier Award, also participating in the NCAA Frozen Four.
