Danny Gare (born May 14, 1954 in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada) is a retired National Hockey League (NHL) player, most notably of the Buffalo Sabres. During a 17-year professional career, Gare 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.

Post-career

Following his playing career, Gare was briefly an assistant coach for the Tampa Bay Lightning, and served on the Buffalo Sabres broadcast team on Empire Sports Network. He served as color analyst for the Columbus Blue Jackets under FSN Ohio from 2006 until April 2009.[1]

On November 22, 2005, Gare had his number 18 jersey retired by the Buffalo Sabres. He is the fifth player of six total so honored. Because of his goal scoring prowess he played right wing on the power play even during the The French Connection years, which pushed René Robert back to the point. 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 1970).[2]
