Right-winger John Gould played over 500 NHL games for three different clubs in the 70s and 80s. He was a clever goal scorer whose speed and anticipation were useful on the power play and penalty killing units.

Gould made the Sabres out of training camp in 1973-74 but was soon traded to the Vancouver Canuck’s along with Tracy Pratt for Jerry Korab. The clever forward hit his stride on the west coast in 1974-75 by scoring 34 goals while playing on a line with…  He followed his breakthrough year up with a 32-goal performance but soon fell out of favour as the team began to decline. Gould was traded to the Atlanta Flames in December, 1976 and was a solid player for 2 1/2 years. He was claimed by the Edmonton Oilers in the 1979 Expansion Draft then shipped back to Buffalo a few weeks later. Gould played 52 games for Buffalo in 1979-80 then retired when he was sent to the minors before the playoffs.

Signed as a free agent by Buffalo, August, 1971. Traded to Vancouver by Buffalo with Tracy Pratt for Jerry Korab, December 27, 1973. Traded to Atlanta by Vancouver with Los Angeles’ 2nd round choice (previously acquired, Atlanta selected Brian Hill) in 1977 Amateur Draft for Hilliard Graves and Larry Carriere, December 2, 1976. Claimed by Edmonton from Atlanta in Expansion Draft, June 13, 1979. Traded to Buffalo by Edmonton for Alex Tidey, November 13, 1979.
