Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bert Wilson
Bert Wilson was selected in the 2nd round, 23rd overall, by the New York Rangers in the 1969 NHL Entry Draft after two years playing junior hockey in London, Ontario with the Nationals and the Knights.

Wilson paid his dues in the minors, playing five years with the Omaha Knights, Buffalo Bisons, and Providence Reds before being called up to the New York Rangers for five games in 1974. The 1974-75 season was Wilson's only complete season playing for the team that drafted him, but after totaling just six points in 61 games, it was clear the Rangers were not going to pursue Wilson's development any further. After spending half a season with the St. Louis Blues in 1975-76, Wilson was shipped to the Los Angeles Kings. He played four complete seasons with the Kings but never reached the ten-goal plateau. In 1980-81, at the age of 31, he played his final NHL season with the Calgary Flames, scoring five goals and seven assists in 50 games.

Wilson continued to play professional hockey for two more years in Salt Lake of the Central Hockey League before retiring at the conclusion of the 1982-83 season.
