He was an All-Pro every season in which he played and was named the league’s most valuable player a record six times. Gait was the first player in league history to score 500 career goals. He retired in 2005 as the NLL’s all-time leader in goals (596) and points (1,091). He is also the league’s most prolific playoff scorer with 66 goals in 22 career postseason games.

As a coach he has made an even bigger impression on the sport.
