Harold Priestley "Hal" Gill III (born April 6, 1975) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman who plays for the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

After being drafted in the eighth round, 207th overall in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft by the Boston Bruins, Gill spent four years playing for Providence College. He entered the NHL during the 1997–98 NHL season and played over 600 regular season games over eight seasons with the Bruins. During the canceled 2004–05 NHL season, Gill played for Lukko in the Finnish SM-liiga.

On July 1, 2006, the Toronto Maple Leafs signed Gill to a three-year deal. His play during his time in Toronto was not as good as he had done in Boston. On February 26, 2008, they traded him to the Pittsburgh Penguins for a second round draft pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and a fifth round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

The Penguins traded for him on the same day that they received Marián Hossa from the Atlanta Thrashers. He helped them win the Eastern Conference and to advance to the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals, where they lost in six games.

On June 12, 2009, Hal Gill hoisted the Stanley Cup over his head after the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena in seven games.

On July 1, 2009, Gill signed a 2-year, $4.5 million deal with the Montreal Canadiens.
