In 61 games Gabrielle managed 35 goals along with 29 assists for 64 points. For a second straight season he was the recipient of the Dorothy Johnson Memorial Trophy awarded to the fan favorite player. In 250 career WHL games (With Brandon, Regina and Prince George) Gabrielle has managed 110 goals, 99 assists and 376 penalty minutes.
