Right-winger Carol "Cully" Wilson played 125 NHL games on four different teams between 1919 and 1927. He was a talented goal scorer who also attained success in the PCHA, NHA, minors and senior leagues.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Wilson first made a name for himself in his hometown with the senior Falcons and Monarchs. He then spent four years in the NHA with the Toronto Blueshirts and played on the 1914 club that defeated the Victoria Cougars to win the Stanley Cup.
Wilson then shifted to the Seattle Metropolitans of the PCHA and was a member of the 1917 Stanley Cup squad, the first US-based champion. He remained in Seattle after the NHL was formed but was signed as a free agent by the Toronto St. Pats prior to the 1919-20 season. Early the next year he was loaned to the Montreal Canadiens, which didn't sit well with Wilson who felt slighted. After a few games he was recalled by the St. Pats but refused to report and was suspended for the remainder of the 1921-22 season.
The crafty forward moved on to the Hamilton Tigers and enjoyed two solid years. This was followed by three years with the Calgary Tigers of the WCHL before a brief return to the NHL with Chicago in 1926-27. Wilson spent most of his last five years in the American Hockey Association before retiring in 1932.
