Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Terry Gray
Terry Gray was a right-winger who played a utility role on four different NHL clubs in the 60s and 70s. He was an explosive scorer in junior and also enjoyed much success in the minors, especially the AHL.

Born in Montreal, Quebec, Gray enjoyed a fine amateur career with the junior Royals and Nationale in his hometown as well as the Hull-Ottawa Junior Canadiens. This was followed by four years split between the EPHL and the Quebec senior loop. Gray scored eight goals and was a useful checker as an NHL rookie with the Boston Bruins in 1961-62. He formed a decent line with Bob Beckett and Dick Miessner but was sent down to the AHL before the start of the next season.

Gray joined the Montreal Canadiens prior to the 1963-64 but played only four games for his new club. He was an AHL regular for four seasons including two years of at least 30 goals. In June, 1967, the veteran forward was given a new lease on life as an Expansion Draft selection of the LA Kings. He scored 12 goals for the first year club then joined the St. Louis Blues in a trade. Over the next three years he played for the AHL's Montreal Voyageurs and the Kansas City Blues of the CHL while receiving the occasional recall to the NHL. After coaching the IHL's Columbus Seals in 1971-72, Gray played two more years in the minors before retiring.
