Right-winger Terry Holbrook played parts of two seasons with the Minnesota North Stars in the early 70s. He was a decent goal scorer who also worked hard on his defensive game.

Born in Petrolia, Ontario, Holbrook was chosen 38th overall by the LA Kings in 1970 after a solid year with the London Knights of the OHA. He began his pro career in 1970-71 with the Springfield Kings of the AHL then joined the Cleveland Barons when the Minnesota North Stars obtained he NHL rights.

After spending nearly two full seasons on the Barons, Holbrook was recalled to the North Stars where he was a decent role player and participated in the 1973 Stanley Cup playoffs. In 1973-74 he formed a solid checking line with Dean Prentice and Gary Gambucci but was relegated to the AHL before the end of the schedule. Prior to the 1974-75 season, Holbrook signed with the WHA's Cleveland Crusaders and spent two years there before retiring in 1976.
