Gord Byers is another member of the NHL's "One-Game Wonder Club." He began his trek to the top by joining the Cooper Cliff Junior Redmen as a 17-year-old in 1947-48. He suited up for eight games with the team, picking up a pair of assists. The team advanced to the Memorial Cup playoffs and in seven games, Byers contributed two goals and four points. The Canadian title eventually went to the Port Arthur West End Bruins.
In 1948-49, Byers joined the St. Catharines Teepees of the OHA. In 29 games he scored two goals and four points. He returned to the Teepees the following year, playing in 41 games, scoring five goals and 17 points. It was later that same year when Byers played in his one and only NHL game, with the Boston Bruins. He made the scoresheet, picking up an assist. Even though it was just a single game, it was certainly the highlight of Byers' career, getting to play along side the likes of Milt Schmidt, Bill Quackenbush and Woody Dumart. He also suited up for two games with the Boston Olympics of the EAHL that year.
Although Byers never again played in the NHL, he continued playing pro hockey for another six years in the EAHL, USHL, OHA Senior A and the NOHA, where he played his final season as a member of the Sudbury Wolves in 1956-57.
