Peirson finished his NHL career with 153 goals and 173 assists for 326 points in 545 games, and played in the NHL All-Star Game in 1950 and 1951. Following his retirement, Peirson became a prominent broadcast color analyst for the Bruins, first on WBZ radio with Fred Cusick -- with whom as a player he had done a TV demonstration during one of CBS-TV's short-lived weekly NHL telecasts—then on WSBK television, initially with Don Earle and then for many years with Cusick, who had moved from radio to TV.
