Dubbie Kerr

Albert "Dubbie" Kerr started his pro hockey career as a high scoring left winger with the Toronto Pros of the Ontario Professional Hockey League in 1909. After only three games with Toronto, he jumped to the Ottawa Silver Seven. He promptly led them to a Stanley Cup victory!

Kerr, along with center Marty Walsh and Billy Gilmour became the most prolific scoring line in the ECHA. In 1911 Bruce Ridpath replaced Gilmour on right wing and the new trio powered their way to an mindboggling 91 goals between them, leading Ottawa to their second Stanley Cup in three years.

After one more season in Ottawa, Kerr jumped to the PCHA to play for the Victoria Aristocrats. he continued to skate for Victoria for five seasons before moving south to Spokane for one more. He retired in 1920.
