Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Greg Britz
After completing high school in Buffalo, forward Greg Britz enrolled at Harvard University where he played for the school's hockey team. During his freshman season in the NCAA, Britz played in 26 games, scoring eight goals and 13 points. He enjoyed four successful seasons in the Ivy League and his most productive season came in his senior year when he tallied 16 goals and 39 points in 33 games in 1982-83.

In the fall of 1983, Britz signed a pro contract with the St. Catharines Saints, the farm team of the Toronto Maple Leafs. He dressed for 44 games with the Saints, compiling 23 goals and 39 points. His strong two-way play caught the eye of the Leafs, who called him up for six games to fill-in for injured players. However, he saw limited ice time with the big club and failed to reach the scoresheet.

Britz played another two years with the St. Catharines Saints and played one more game with the Maple Leafs in 1984-84. In 1986-87, Britz joined the Binghamton Whalers, where he had 25 goals and 41 points in 74 games. He also played his final NHL game that year, getting into the Hartford lineup for one game. Britz had an eight-game NHL career, was held pointless with four minutes in penalties.
