Feb 19--Randy Gregg

Randy Gregg

Gregg attended the University of Alberta to work toward a medical degree, and playing hockey was a secondary priority. He received a contract offer from the New York Rangers but rejected it to spend the year with the Canadian national team, and captained Canada's entry at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid.
Following the 1980 Olympics, Gregg took the unusual step of signing in Japan as a player-coach, and spent two full seasons playing there. He was at last convinced to accept an NHL offer by his hometown Edmonton Oilers, and joined the team for the 1982 playoffs, appearing in 4 games.
Gregg appeared in 474 NHL games, recording 41 goals and 152 assists for 193 points along with 333 penalty minutes. He also appeared in 137 playoff games, totaling 13 goals and 40 assists for 53 points.
Following his retirement, Gregg completed his residency training program at the University of Alberta. He is presently a family physician, operating a successful sports medicine practice in Edmonton.
