Tim Kerr Life

Timothy E. Kerr (born January 5, 1960) is a retired Canadian ice hockey right winger who spent 13 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Philadelphia Flyers, New York Rangers, and Hartford Whalers.

During his career, he hit the NHL's coveted 50-goal plateau on four occasions.

Personal life

Kathy Roberts died at the age of 30 from a fast-spreading virus ten days after her first child was born, a daughter named Kimberly.

In 1991, he met his new wife, Midge, at the Tim Kerr Run in Avalon, New Jersey. Kimberly and Kayleigh Kerr's two children, as well as three sons named Garrett, Wesley, and Tanner, are among their three children. Kerr lives in Moorestown, New Jersey, and Avalon, New Jersey. Wesley and Tanner graduated from University of Sciences Philadelphia and Wesley Wesley now work for his father as a sales associate for Sotheby's International Realty, Tim Kerr's International Realty. Kimberly graduated from West Virginia University.

Kerr is the owner of Sotheby's International Realty in Avalon, New Jersey, which sells and rents homes in both Avalon and Stone Harbor, New Jersey. In addition, Kerr owns the Pensacola Ice Flyers and a part-owner of the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs, one of the Southern Professional Hockey League's teams.


Tim Kerr Career

Playing career

In 1980, Kerr was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Philadelphia Flyers. Initially, a winger with hands that could bruise an opponent's face as well as defeating an opposing goaltender, it took three years before he staked his claim as a lethal sniper. Kerr did not recover from the majority of the 1982-1983 season due to knee injuries and a fractured leg, but the 1983-84 season changed everything. In the process of setting the NHL single-season record for power play goals with 34 goals in the 1985–86 season, he began his team-record run of four consecutive 50-goals campaigns, while simultaneously setting the NHL single-season record for power play goals with 34.

Kerr scored four goals in a span of 8:16 against the New York Rangers in the second round of an eventual 6–5 victory at Madison Square Garden, enabling Philadelphia to sweep the best-of-five series. In September 1985, he was hospitalized with aseptic meningitis at the outset, but he was able to set a new record of 58 goals. Kerr was chastised for 58 goals the year before, finishing second in the NHL to Wayne Gretzky.

During his prime, Kerr was almost unmovable in the slot. Bryan Trottier, a former hockey Hall of Fame center and New York Islanders star, once joked that the only way to stop Kerr was to wrap chains around his arms and legs. Trottier retracted the remark immediately by announcing that it would not necessarily discourage him.

Kerr's ascension into the ranks of NHL superstars was hampered by illness and bad timing. A knee injury hindered his ability to play in the final two rounds of the postseason in the 1985 playoffs. In 1987, a shoulder injury sustained in the second round cost him the entire final two series against the Montreal Canadiens and Edmonton Oilers. Kerr underwent five shoulder operations in a 14-month cycle and missed just a handful of the 1987-88 regular season, while being mostly ineffective in Philly's seven-game loss to the Washington Capitals in the Patrick Division Semifinals. Although Kerr would return to play 69 games and score 48 goals in 1988-1989, a feat that earned him the Bill Masterton Trophy for perseverance and dedication to the sport, he never played more than half of the time during the remainder of his career.

He was left exposed in the 1991 expansion draft and after being drafted by the San Jose Sharks, he was quickly dealt to the New York Rangers. One more season with the Hartford Whalers followed before he retired at the age of 33. A new personal tragedy brought an end to his Flyers' tenure.

Kerr's best-ever goal per game (minimum 500 games played) with 370 goals in 655 NHL regular season games, his 10th all-time record (minimum 500 games played).

Kerr is his second best shooting percentage (20.3) in NHL playoff history (among players with 40+ career goals) and is 2nd overall.
