Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Gerry Lowrey
Left-winger Gerry Lowery was a decent two-way performer on five different teams in the 1920s and '30s. He was also an accomplished player in the minors and several senior leagues.

Born in Ottawa, Ontario, Lowery played senior hockey locally then joined the NOHA with the Iroquois Falls Eskimos and the North Bay Trappers. In 1924 he moved to London, Ontario and played senior for the AAA and Ravens as well as a year with the Panthers of the Can-Pro circuit.

Lowery made his NHL debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1927-28. He began the next year with the Leafs before joining the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 1929-30, he scored 16 goals for the weak Pirates while playing on a line with Harold Darragh and Hib Milks. He remained with the franchise when it relocated to Philadelphia and managed to get worse in 1930-31. Lowery was a decent role player for the Chicago Black Hawks the next season then played his last seven NHL games with the Ottawa Senators in 1932-33.

When his NHL tenure was through, the hard working forwad spent four years in the Can-Am League. He also spent a year in the AHL with the Providence Reds in 1936-37 after the demise of the Can-Am League. He then played senior hockey before retiring in 1942 after two years with the Ottawa Montagnards.
