Apparently passed last night from a heart attack, aged 58
That's way too soon.
Wow... He was a nice fun, guy. I got to know him a little as he was working as part of a crew who installed hardwood floors in my house over a few days. I remember his playing days. Not the biggest guy but scrappy. Way too young.
RIP Greg #7
Well described. This is very sad
Well described indeed, I remember his time with the Leafs quite fondly. 58 years young, very sad news.
Another memory of Terrion.... The Gretzky killer....
I met Greg several times coaching hockey out in eastern Ont. His son played against my son and Greg was always at the games. He owned a gas station in Marmora right on Hwy 7. Rip Greg! Nice man, very friendly.
Sad to hear. He was a guest speaker two years in a row when I was around 10, at our hockey banquets.
LOL 10-8 score. Man, how I miss those games. I wish LeafsTv would show those games instead of meaningless games from 2012 etc. But I digress.
I too remember that one game Greg Terrion dominated an Oilers' team that it's rumoured partied a little too much the previous night during their visit to Toronto. He was a high effort player who was personal favourite of mine.
That goalie (Tony Esposito) is in the Hall of Fame. It's tough to see in that clip although he is 40 and that was his last season.
Sad to hear! Condolences to Greg's family and friends.
R.I.P. Greg #7.
Yeah, I would drive past it a number of times a year. Man, sucks to hear he has passed. He was one of my unsung heroes as a kid.
Oh too bad . Good 3/4 liner from what I remember. Defensive forward, penalty killer I think. Too young.
Probably because he was on the first Leafs team I cheered for as a new fan back in the late 80s, I’ve always associated the number 7 with him. I can’t think of another player who wore it on the Leafs.
Oh man he was my favourite Leaf before Wendel in 85.
I met him in 84 I still have the pic. Unreal. Way way too young.
Was my mom's favorite Leaf. I still associate #7 to him to this day.
I lived in Marmora when Greg owned the station on Hwy 7 (he sold it a number of years ago)
He knew I was a Sens fan and we would chat hockey (about the Sens, Leafs , whatever). Very nice guy.. way too soon
Sad news. Im from the next town west of Marmora. Grew up playing hockey against his son in minor league days.
