Brian Perry was born April 6, 1944 in Aldershot, England. A graduate of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior "B" Hockey League's Owen Sound Greys, Perry made his professional debut with the Eastern Hockey League's New York Rovers during the 1964-65 season while suiting up also for the Nova Scotia Senior Hockey League's New Glasgow Rangers.

The Aldershot, England native returned to the EHL in 1965-66 as a member of the New Haven Blades while playing a handful of games with the American Hockey League's Providence Reds. Perry played three years with the Reds before being claimed by the Oakland Seals in the 1968 Inter-League Draft.

In 1968-69, Perry made his NHL debut with the Seals playing in 67 games scoring eleven goals while adding 22 assists for 33 points before splitting his 1969-70 season with the Seals and the Reds. During the off-season, the Buffalo Sabres claimed Perry in the Expansion Draft where he played in only one game while spending the majority of his 1970-71 season with the Western Hockey League's Seattle Totems.

Following a brief stint in the Sabres organisation, Perry was claimed by Providence in the 1971 Reverse Draft where he spent the entire 1971-72 season before the World Hockey Association's New York Raiders selected him in the 1972 WHA General Player Draft.

Perry spent two seasons in the WHA with New York and New York-Jersey before transferring to San Diego after the New York-Jersey franchise relocated following the 1973-74 WHA season.
