Timothy E. Kerr (born January 5, 1960 in Windsor, Ontario) is a retired professional ice hockey winger who played in the National Hockey League (NHL).

Contents

Playing career

Kerr was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Philadelphia Flyers. It proved to be a great move for Philadelphia, as Kerr scored 50 goals four times, and set the NHL single-season record for power-play goals in a season with 34 in the 1985–86 season. That season was particularly interesting in that in September 1985 he was hospitalized with aseptic meningitis.

Kerr was an almost unmovable presence in the slot during his prime. Hockey Hall of Famer Bryan Trottier once joked that the only way to stop Kerr was to wrap chains around his arms and legs. But Trottier retracted that statement almost immediately by saying that that still probably would not stop him.

However, Kerr's career was plagued with injuries, as he missed almost the complete 1982–83 and 1987–88 seasons. In the latter, he had five shoulder operations in a fourteen month period. Also in October 1990, his wife died at the age of 30 just ten days after the birth of their baby.

Kerr played one season each with the New York Rangers and the Hartford Whalers.

Post-playing career

Kerr is the owner of Tim Kerr's Powerplay Realty[1] in Avalon, New Jersey. Powerplay Realty sells and rents homes in both Avalon and Stone Harbor, New Jersey. In addition, Kerr owns the Pensacola Ice Flyers, a team of the Southern Professional Hockey League set to begin play for the 2009-10 season. [2]
