George Edward "Bud" Gardner (October 8, 1942 – November 6, 2006) was the first-ever goaltender for the National Hockey League's Vancouver Canucks. Gardner played for the Canucks after breaking into the NHL with the Detroit Red Wings. With the Wings, Gardner had to compete with Roger Crozier and Roy Edwards for playing time. In Vancouver, he played in 42 games over two seasons before jumping to the new World Hockey Association. In 1972-73, he spent much of the season as the number 1 goalie for the Los Angeles Sharks, and teamed with Russ Gillow to help the Sharks to a 3rd-place finish and allow the 3rd fewest goals in the WHA. George had an incredible love for children (including his own, Paula and Daniel) He would always make time to entertain kids by pulling his dentures out. A gesture that could evoke laughter and fear... He is greatly missed.
