George "Gerry" Pierce Geran (August 3, 1896 in Holyoke, Massachusetts - September 8, 1981 in Brooklyn, New York) was a professional ice hockey player in the National Hockey League.

Playing careerEdit

Geran was the first player from the United States to make the NHL, starting with the Montreal Wanderers in the NHL's inaugural season, 1917–18. He played in four of the Wanderers' six games. After the fire that burned down the Wanderers' arena, the team was disbanded. On April 29, 1920 he won a silver medal with the (11-member) U.S. ice hockey team at the 1920 Olympics in Antwerp. In spite of this professional obstacle, he was nevertheless allowed to play in the Olympic Games. He was also a reserve player in the 1924 Olympics.

Geran didn't play in the NHL again until he suited up for the Boston Bruins for 33 games in 1925–26. In 37 career NHL games, he scored 5 goals and six points. Upon his retirement from the NHL, he was the last active player from the Wanderers roster.
