Bert Marshall (born Albert Leroy Marshall on November 22, 1943) is a retired ice hockey defenceman who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Detroit Red Wings, California Golden Seals, New York Rangers and the New York Islanders.
Currently, he works as an amateur scout for the Carolina Hurricanes.
He was known as a rugged, stay-at-home defenceman who could provide crisp outlet passes to his forwards.
Playing Career[edit | edit source]
During his rookie season with the Detroit Red Wings, Bert's fine play made him a contender for the Calder Memorial Trophy. The Red Wings made the finals that season before Montreal defeated them four games to two.
The Seals finished second in 1968–69 and fourth in 1969–70 in the West Division of the NHL and his fine play was part of the reason.
The Oakland Seals became the California Golden Seals in 1970–71 and Bert was injured for much of the year which contributed to the Seals finishing in last place in the league.
Bert was later drafted by the New York Islanders in the 1973 intra-league draft and it was here that he played his best hockey.
While with the Islanders, he developed good shot-blocking ability and his reliable play and leadership helped the Islanders make the Stanley Cup semi-finals in 1975 and 1976.
Bert retired from the NHL at the end of the 1978-79 season. He went on to play for the Indianapolis Checkers in the CHL during the 1979-80 season where he ended his playing career.
