Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Gerry Minor
Centre Gerry Minor was a steady role player in parts of five NHL seasons with the Vancouver Canucks. He had a quick release and a natural touch around the net that was more obvious in junior and the minors.

The Regina native played junior with the local Capitals in the SJHL before graduating the WCJHL's Pats. After scoring 54 goals in 1977-78, Minor was selected 90th overall by the Vancouver Canucks at the Amateur Draft. He spent most of his first two pro seasons on the farm then played 74 games for Vancouver as a rookie in 1980-81. Playing on a tenacious line with Jerry Butler and Brent Ashton, Minor scored six short-handed goals and turned in a +4 plus/minus rating.

Minor battled injuries during the 1981-82 regular season but recovered in time to play a part in the club's unlikely run to the Stanley Cup finals. He dressed for 39 games in 1982-83 before Vancouver began looking at other players. Minor spent most of his last five years as a pro in the minors. He retired in 1987 after scoring 113 points over two years with the IHL's Indianapolis Checkers.
