Gerry Reid did not play a single regular-season game in the National Hockey League. Reid, a product of junior hockey in Owen Sound and Barrie, had joined the Detroit Red Wing system in 1948. The Red Wings, as a closer evaluation, assigned him to their AHL team in Indianapolis for 1948-49. Gerry performed well in his first season by scoring 31 goals and adding 47 helpers. His linemates that year were Fred Glover and Cal " Baldy" MacKay, and the trio were put on standby for the 1949 Detroit playoff run along with fellow Capital, Nels Podolsky.

Detroit fought through a grueling series with the Montreal Canadiens to reach the finals. The Red Wings scraped though on the strength of the Production Line of Abel, Howe and Lindsay. The motor crew were looking for second and third line scoring in the Cup final against the Toronto Maple Leafs to counter the buds, led by rookie Sid Smith Podolsky saw action in the Canadiens series but it wasn' t until the finals that Glover and Reid were inserted into the lineup. On Sunday, April 10, 1949, Gerry Reid made his NHL debut, in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals. Reid worked on a line with Jim Enio and his linemate in Indianapolis, Fred Glover. The move did not pay off for Red Wings coach Jack Adams, as the team lost at home 3-1. Adams left the rookies at home when the series switched to Toronto but quickly recalled them when the Red Wings fell behind three games to none.

Podolsky and Reid were both rushed into the April 16 game. The rookies could not provide the pop to energize the second or third line and Detroit was swept in the series. Gerry Reid went back to Indianapolis the following season and guided the Capitals to the 1950 Calder Cup. A year later the AHL referees selected him as the Jack Fox Memorial Trophy winner as the league' s most gentlemanly player. The referees described him as a good kid who, while aggressive, played the game cleanly and without fuss. Reid returned to Owen Sound to play senior hockey following another year in Indianapolis and one in Cleveland. He played five seasons for Owen Sound before retiring.
