Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Fred Hergerts
Centre Fred Hergerts played parts of two seasons with the New York Americans in the 30s. He was an excellent passer and face-off man who enjoyed most of his success in the AHL and AHA.

Born in Calgary, Alberta, Hergerts played junior with the local Canadians in 1930-31. He then spent two years in the Alberta senior league with the Calgary Bronks and the Drumheller Miners. After spending a year with the Syracuse and Cleveland in the IAHL, Hergerts split the 1934-35 season between the Americans and the Philadelphia Arrows of the Can-Am League.

After making it into one NHL game the next season, Hergerts spent several years in the minors. During the early 40s he was a productive scorer on the AHA's St. Louis Flyers and was voted on to the league's first all-star team in 1940. He also helped Flyers win the AHA championship in 1939 and 1941. Hergerts also spent a few years in the AHL and played senior hockey with the Calgary Stampeders and Nelson Maple Leafs before retiring in 1951. He also tried his hand at coaching the Nelson squad for a year.
