Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bert Burry
Defenseman Bert Burry grew up playing hockey in Toronto, Ontario and was known for his solid defensive play. He joined the OHA's Toronto Marlboros in 1930 with the hopes of continuing playing the sport he loved so much. He played just two games with the Marlboros in 1930.

In 1931-32, the 22-year-old Burry decided to move to Springfield, where he played for the Indians of the CAHL. He laced up the skates for 20 games that season, picking up one assist. His sometimes overly aggressive style led to penalty minutes, as verified by his 20 minutes in the box, a considerable amount for that era of the game.

The following year, it was Burry's aggressive style which landed him a spot with the NHL's Ottawa Senators for four games in 1932-33. Although he played relatively well during his short stay with the club, he was released the following year during October tryouts along with other players such as; Frank Daley, Alex Ferguson, and Harry "Yip" Radley.

Burry continued to play pro hockey for another four years in the CHL and the OCHL before retiring after the 1936 season.
