Biography

He spent most of his 14-year career with the Buffalo Sabres, but also played for the Detroit Red Wings and Edmonton Oilers. He was a two-time All-Star right winger who twice scored 50 goals for the Buffalo Sabres, including the 1979–80 season, when he tied for the league lead with 56. He was known for his quick wrist shot and status as a small, yet scrappy and fearless player.

On November 22, 2005, Gare had his number 18 jersey retired by the Buffalo Sabres.

He holds team records for most goals by a right winger (267), most game-tying goals (21), and fastest goal scored from start of NHL career (:18 into a game versus the Boston Bruins on 10 October 1974).
