Randy Gregg, family man, medical doctor, minor hockey coach, and community activist is likely best remembered as a defenseman for the Edmonton Oilers from 1982 to 1990. During that time the club won five Stanley Cup Championships. Gregg began his hockey career with the University of Alberta Golden Bears and he was also a member of the Canadian Olympic Hockey team, the Canada Cup Championship Team (1984) and the Izvestia Cup Championship Team (1987). Following his last year of professional hockey as a member of the Vancouver Canucks, he went on to complete his medical training. He is presently Director of Medicine at the Edmonton Sports Institute and the MacEwan Medical Clinic where the focus is on sports-related health issues.Review:
