The Toronto Maple Leafs said goodbye to Jim Gregory on Tuesday.
The Maple Leafs honored their former general manager and NHL executive who passed away on Oct. 30 before their game against the Los Angeles Kings in Toronto.
Gregory, who was 83 when he died, spent 66 years in hockey, serving as NHL senior vice president, hockey operations and supervision and director of NHL Central Scouting and chairman of the Hockey Hall of Fame selection committee. He also enjoyed a nearly two-decade tenure as coach and GM in Toronto's organization and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a builder in 2007.
Toronto celebrated Gregory's tenure with the team with a two-minute, 23 second montage of career highlights, then the sellout crowd at Scotiabank Arena participated in a moment of silence in his honor.
