What happened to Gilbert Dionne?

Breaks in with the Habs has two (near) back to back 20g/30a season, then falls off the face of the planet. He had a respectable 12p in 20gp in the playoffs.

Looks like he missed some games due to injury. Scored 3point in 5GP for Florida then he spends the rest of his career in the AHL/IHL or overseas.

Prior to the massive trade between Montreal and the Flyers was made, (LeClair, Desjardins, Recchi, etc.), Dionne made a comment about the style of play under Jacques Demers similar to "we play like chickens with their heads cut off" and not too soon thereafter he was part of the deal. After the trade, the term "fresh start" had accompanied him but though he generally played well initially he was snake-bitten on offense. Then he fell in the depth chart and was used infrequently in the playoffs. He was left exposed for the waiver draft to start the (1995-96) following season and did not get selected.
