Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Walter Jackson
Walter Jackson was a solid left-winger who could check and contribute timely offence. Most of his NHL playing time took place over a two-year period with the New York Americans in the early 1930s.

Originally from Instock, England, "Red" Jackson moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba as a boy. He learned the game in the local minor hockey system then played senior with the city's CPR, Elmwoods, and Native Sons teams. He gained his pro experience after signing on with the St. Louis Flyers of the AHA. Jackson played most of the 1932-33 season and all of the 1933-34 schedule with the New York Americans.

Jackson was acquired by the Boston Bruins where he dressed for two games in 1935-36. He soon found himself back in the minors after the Bruins transferred his rights to the London Tecumsehs of the IAHL as compensation for signing Rey Getcliffe. Jackson later played two years in the AHA before retiring in 1938.
