Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Gerry Carson
The last of the hockey-playing brothers, Gerry was the baby on skates, five years younger than Bill and three younger than Frank Jr. Gerry also enjoyed the longest NHL career of the three and began after just one season of Pro with Philadelphia in the CanAm league.

His first NHL year was 1928-29 when he played for both the Canadiens and Rangers and had the distinction of going the entire season without registering a single point. His time with the Rangers was as a loan, so he returned to Montreal for 1929-30 and helped the team win the Stanley Cup.
Carson was back in the CanAm league, though, for the next two years before rejoining the Habs for four full years, but his career was interrupted when he suffered a serious off-season knee injury and missed all of 1935-36 recovering. Feeling his abilities would be seriously compromised, the Habs traded him to cross-town rivals Maroons, and it was there Carson played his final year of pro, in 1936-37 before retiring.
