Paul Carl Meger - Born February 17, 1929 in Watrous, Saskatchewan – Died August 27, 2019 in Barrie, Ontario was a Canadian ice Hockey left winger.

- J. Ross Robertson Cup Champion 1948 and 1949 with Barrie Flyers.
- George Richardson Memorial Trophy Champion 1948 with Barrie Flyers.
1948 Memorial Cup finalist.

- Dudley (Red) Garrett Memorial Award Winner 1950 with Buffalo Bisons.

Meger made his NHL debut with the Montreal Canadiens on April 4, 1950 vs New York Rangers at The Forum in a 3-2 OT win for Montreal during first round of NHL playoffs.

Meger scored his 1st NHL goal vs Al Rollins of the Toronto Maple Leafs at 13:19 of the 1st period on March 1, 1951 at The Forum in a 3-1 Montreal win.

While suiting up for the QSHL’s Montreal Royals in 1955, Meger collided with Boston’s Leo Labine midway though the November match-up. Labine’s skate accidentally kicked up, shattering Meger’s temporal lobe and slicing into his brain.

Though surgeons managed to save the 25-year-old’s life, his Hockey career was over. In a show of solidarity, his teammates voted to give Meger a share of their playoff bonus money at season’s end.
