Gerald Minor (born October 27, 1958 in Regina, Saskatchewan) is a former professional ice hockey player who spent his entire NHL career with the Vancouver Canucks. He had a quick release and a natural touch around the net and was a steady role player in five NHL seasons with the Canucks, where he held the record for most shorthanded goals by a rookie in the 1980–81 season. Minor helped set the Vancouver record for fastest four goals in a game (done in 1 minute, 23 seconds), by scoring the first goal in a game vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins on November 26, 1980. He also set the Canucks' single-season record (since broken) for shorthanded goals with six in 1980-81. Minor missed most of 1981-82 season and start of 1982 playoffs with slight skull fracture, suffered in during Vancouver's 1981 training camp, and with a broken left ankle - an injury suffered in Vancouver's January 10, 1982 game versus the Chicago Blackhawks. He scored one goal and three assists during the 1981-1982 Stanley Cup against the New York Islanders.
