Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Gaston Leroux
Defenceman Gaston Leroux played two games with the Montreal Canadiens in 1935-36. He was a reliable positional player who spent most of his time in the minors or senior hockey circles.

The Montreal native began his career in the local senior league with the Canadiens, St. Francis and Banque Nationale. After splitting the 1933-34 season between the Quebec Beavers of the Can-Am League and the senior Montreal Lafontaine, he helped anchor the blueline on the IAHL's Cleveland Barons.

In October, Leroux was signed by the Montreal Canadiens to serve as defensive insurance. He was recalled for a couple of NHL games that year but saw most of his action with the Windsor Bulldogs of the IAHL and the Can-Am League's Springfield Indians. He then spent three years in the QPHL with the Sherbrooke Red Raiders before retiring in 1939.
