Submitted By Tom Flatt on Wednesday, October 30, 2019
Hockey Hall of Famer Jim Gregory, who served 10 years as general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs before spending decades as an NHL executive, has died. He was 83.The NHL confirmed Gregory’s death in a news release Wednesday.



Mr. Gregory was born in 1935 in Port Colborne, Ontario, and raised in the nearby town of Dunnville, Ontario. His father was born in England and was a Royal Canadian Air Force World War II veteran. Growing up in Dunnville, he developed a passion for hockey, in particular, the Toronto Maple Leafs, listening to Foster Hewitt's broadcasts on Hockey Night in Canada, and developing a relationship with his favourite player, Ted Kennedy.  He learned the game from playing road hockey, and later on his local midget hockey team.

The Mudcat family expresses our deepest condolences to the Gregory Family.
