Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Glenn Brydson
Right-winger Glenn Brydson played nearly 300 games for four different clubs in the 1930s. He was known for battling hard in the corners and sticking with his check while contributing on offense as well.

The native of Swansea, Ontario played three years with the Toronto Canoe Club before joining the Montreal AAA for a season and a half. Brydson made his NHL debut as a reserve with the Montreal Maroons in 1930-31. He then spent three years on the club as a solid two-way forward playing with such figures as Wally Kilrea and Batt Phillips.

Following his tenure in Montreal, Brydson was spent the 1934-35 season with the St. Louis Eagles. His solid work and 29 points stood out on the fledgling club that folded after the season. Brydson was claimed by the New York Rangers in the Dispersal Draft and was enjoying a solid first half of the schedule when he was traded by the Chicago Black Hawks for Howie Morenz. He was a decent role player for the Hawks but lost his place in the line-up part way through the 1937-38 season. Brydson spent his last four and a half pro seasons in the AHL then played a year with the senior Kingston Frontenacs before retiring in 1943.
