Defenceman Gord Reid played one game for the New York Americans in 1936-37. He was a solid positional player who could play physically and contribute offense when needed.
Born in Mount Albert, Ontario Reid was a well known contributor to the senior Port Colborne Sailors of the OHA. He turned pro in 1934-35 with the New Haven Eagles of the Can-Am League and led the league in penalty minutes the next season. He remained with the franchise when it joined the newly formed American Hockey League in 1936-37 and also suited up for one NHL game with the Amerks as an injury replacement.
By the late 30s Reid was a stalwart with the AHA's St. Paul Saints where he played efficiently at both ends of the ice. He retired in 1944 after spending his last year in the AHL with the Providence Reds.
