Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Alex Gray
Right-winger Alex Gray played briefly with the New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs in the late 20s. He was fine goal scorer at the senior and minor pro level and was a solid role player in the NHL.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Gray starred for five years with the Port Arthur Ports of the TBSHL. He topped the league in goal scoring three times and was its most penalized player twice. In 1927-28 he scored seven goals as an NHL rookie with the Rangers while playing on a line with Paul Thompson and Murray Murdoch. ,That spring he scored a goal while helping the Blueshirts win the Stanley Cup in only their second year of existence.

In October, 1928, Gray was a part of a major deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs that involved star netminders Lorne Chabot and John Ross Roach. The solid forward played a few games in Toronto before he was sent to the Ravinas of the Can-Pro League for the remainder of the season. Gray played his last four pro seasons in the IAHL, mostly with the Cleveland Barons where he notched a personal high 29 goals in 1930-31 then retired two years later.
