The Grand Rapids Griffins have announced that former Campbellton Tigers forward Gregor MacLeod has signed a one-year contract with the American Hockey League (AHL) club for the 2019-20 season.

As a 17-year-old for the 2015-16 Maritime Junior Hockey League (MHL) season, the Dartmouth, N.S. native was third on the Tigers in scoring with 16 goals and 30 assists in 48 games. He also notched three goals and eight assists in a seven-game, first-round playoff loss to the Summerside Western Capitals.

In 2016-17, MacLeod joined the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s (QMJHL) Charlottetown Islanders where he posted six goals and 25 assists in 55 games, with an assist in ten playoff games. The following season, he had tallied eight goals and nine assists in 24 games before being traded to the Quebec Remparts as the calendar flipped to 2018. MacLeod would score 11 goals and 17 assists in 30 games, with a goal and an assist in seven playoff games.

MacLeod was dealt to the Drummondville Voltigeurs in September 2018 and responded with a career year. He posted highs of 35 goals, 49 assists, 43 PIM, a plus-36 rating, and 60 games played, helping the Voltigeurs win the Central Division and a decade-best finish of 107 points.

MacLeod also participated in the Ottawa Senators’ training camp last fall.

The MHL would like to congratulate MacLeod on this achievement, wish him continuing success in the current QMJHL playoffs, and all the best in the future.
