George "Dusty" Blair followed in the footsteps of his older brother Chuck in most things as they were growing up as kids in South Porcupine, Ontario. When Chuck Blair took up hockey at a young age, Dusty Blair was right there. Both played their junior hockey with the Oshawa Generals and in fact they played together in the 1947-48 season.
After two years in Oshawa, Blair turned pro in 1949-50 playing for the Pittsburgh Hornets of the AHL and the Los Angeles Monarchs of the PCHL. In 1951-52 Blair was called up to play two games with the Toronto Maple Leafs and although he was held pointless, he finally outdid his brother, who played just one game in the NHL.
Although Blair never again made it to the NHL, he loved the game of hockey so much that he continued to play for another 14 years with a variety of teams in different leagues, retiring at the conclusion of the 1964-65 season as a member of the Nashville Dixie Flyers at the age of 36.
