After six seasons in the NHL, GĂ©rald Couture was traded by the Detroit Red Wings to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Bert Hirschfield on Jun. 19, 1951. He played 10 games with the Habs in their 1951-52 campaign, posting one assist and amassing four penalty minutes before a laceration he suffered to his ankle brought his season to an early end. He was traded to the Blackhawks on Sept. 22, 1952, in return for financial compensation. Couture played two seasons with Chicago before announcing his retirement.
