Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ganton Scott
Right-winger Ganton Scott played briefly for three different NHL clubs in the 20s. He eventually found a long term home in the California Pro league where he played nearly seven full seasons.

The Toronto native was an amateur standout with the local Aura Lee club before serving as a role player for the Toronto St. Pats. In January, 1924 he was traded to the Hamilton Tigers and played four games there before signing with the Montreal Maroons as a free agent.

Scott proved to be a decent checker on the Maroons' inaugural squad in 1924-25. He formed a decent trio with Sam Rothschild and Chuck Dinsmore but lost his place in the line up the next year. After competing in the WHL with the Edmonton Eskimos and Saskatoon Crescents, Scott signed on with the Palais de Glace squad in the Cal Pro circuit. He toiled on several franchises in the league and retired in 1932 after scoring 15 goals for the Oakland Sheiks.
