Gerald Carson, nicknamed “Stub”, was the youngest of three hockey playing brothers from Parry Sound, ON, all of whom made it to the NHL and had their names engraved on the Stanley Cup, each with a different team.

Older siblings Frank and Bill won as members of the 1925-26 Maroons and 1928-29 Bruins respectively while Gerald would complete the family hat trick with the Canadiens.

Joining a blue line corps that already included Sylvio Mantha, “Battleship” Leduc and Marty Burke, ice time was in short supply for the 25-year-old rookie in Cecil Hart’s 1928-29 Canadiens lineup. After seeing limited minutes in 30 games, Carson was loaned to the New York Rangers for the balance of the schedule, ending the season pointless after 40 regular season games and four more in the postseason.

Back in a Habs sweater for the 1929-30 campaign, the 5-foot-10, 175-pounder appeared in 35 games, scoring the first of his 12 career goals along the way. He also played in the six postseason encounters leading to a Montreal Stanley Cup title, the third in both team and Carson family history.

After two years with the CAHL’s Providence Reds, where he adopted a more physical approach to his duties, Carson rejoined the Canadiens and saw much more ice time than he had the first time around. He played in every game on the club’s calendar for the next three seasons, and displayed his newly-honed offensive ability to the tune of five goals in both 1932-33 and 1933-34.

After spending the entire 1935-36 season sidelined after undergoing knee surgery, Carson’s rights were traded to the cross-town Maroons, for whom he dressed for 42 games, retiring after the 1935-36 schedule closed.
