Gerry Hart
Gerry Hart
Defenseman
Number: 18
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 190
Shoots:
Born: Jan 1, 1948
Birthplace: Flin Flon, MB, Canada
Acquired: Claimed by New York Islanders from Detroit in expansion draft on June 6, 1972.
Gerry Hart grew up in Flin Flon, Manitoba, where the locals played hockey and worked in the mines. Hockey was for fun and the mine work was for money. As Hart began to recognize the limited career prospects of his birthplace, he dedicated himself to hockey -- his ticket out of town.

As a junior, Hart played for the Flin Flon Bombers in the company of his buddies, Reggie Leach and Bobby Clarke. In his final season, he was one of the team's heavies, potting 51 points on defense and serving 290 minutes in penalties.

In 1968, he joined the Red Wings organization where he spent most of his time, honing his skills in Fort Worth and Baltimore. By 1970, he caught on with the Wings until he suffered a borderline career-ending injury that knocked him out of action and back to the minors for reconditioning.

In 1972, Hart was claimed in the expansion draft by the New York Islanders where he steadied the team's blueline through the thin years while the club gradually assembled the pieces needed to secure their dynasty of the early eighties. Unfortunately for Hart, he was claimed by the expansion Quebec Nordiques in 1979, just before the Islanders secured their first of four straight Stanley Cup victories.

Hart played one season in Quebec before rounding out his hockey career with the St. Louis Blues in 1982.
