He was taken 65th overall by the New York Islanders in 1989 and totaled 108 goals in four years with the Gens. The talented forward spent most of his first three years as a pro with the AHL's Capital District Islanders where he notched consecutive 30-goal seasons. He played three games for New York in 1993-94 before joining the Edmonton Oilers in a trade.

Initially the change of scenery and the fast-paced style of Edmonton benefited Grieve. He scored 13 goals in 24 games for the club but opted to sign as a free agent with the Chicago Blackhawks in July, 1994. Following the Owner's Lockout. Grieve was a solid role player in 24 games with the Hawks and settled into the same role the next season before he was relegated to the minors.
