Centre Jerry Wilson played three games for the Montreal Canadiens in 1956-57. He was a decent goal scorer who enjoyed the bulk of his success in junior and the minors.
Born in Edmonton, Alberta Wilson played junior with the Winnipeg Canadians and the St. Boniface Canadiens. In 1954-55 he registered 35 goals in 31 games for St. Boniface and was recruited by the Montreal junior Canadiens. Injuries forced him to miss the entire 1955-56 schedule.
Wilson's health returned the next year and he was a regular on the junior and minor pro Hull-Ottawa Canadiens. He also gained his only NHL experience with the powerhouse Habs before his injury troubles returned. The hard luck pivot sat out two years then made a two-game comeback with the Minneapolis Millers of the IHL in 1959-60 before hanging up his skates for good.
