Playing career[]

Undrafted to the NHL, Greco played college hockey with the Ohio State Buckeyes from 2012 to 2016 after playing junior with the Des Moines Buccaneers and Waterloo Blackhawks in the USHL.[1] He then turned pro, playing in the American Hockey League for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers[2] and Springfield Thunderbirds.

Greco was signed by the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League to a two-year, two-way contact in November 2017.[3] In the 2018–19 season, Greco was recalled from his assignment with the Springfield Thunderbirds to the Panthers on December 11, 2018[4] and made his NHL debut on December 13, in a 5–1 loss to the Minnesota Wild.[5]

On July 15, 2019, Greco signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Panthers on July 15, 2019.[6] In the following 2019–20 season, Greco continued with the Springfield Thunderbirds, collecting 19 points in 37 games. On February 20, 2020, Greco was traded by the Panthers to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Danick Martel[7] Assigned to AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch, Greco recorded 1 assist in just three games.

On February 24, 2020, Greco's brief stint in the Lightning organization ended when he was included in a trade along with a 2020 first-round pick to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for Barclay Goodrow and a third-round pick. He was immediately re-assigned to join the Sharks affiliate, the San Jose Barracuda.[8]
