Greg McKegg (born June 17, 1992) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing for the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League (NHL). McKegg was selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the third round (62nd overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

McKegg's great uncle was former NHL defencemen Lou Fontinato.

Playing careerEdit

McKegg played four seasons (2008-2012) of major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), for a short time with the London Knights, but the majority with the Erie Otters, scoring 125 goals and 145 assists for 270 points, while earning 143 penalty minutes, in 262 games played.

McKegg competed with Team Canada at the 2010 IIHF World U18 Championships, leading the team with six assists and seven points in six games played.[1]

On April 6, 2011, the Toronto Maple Leafs signed McKegg to a three-year entry level contract.[2]

On February 1, 2014, the Toronto Maple Leafs recalled McKegg from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Toronto Marlies.[3] Taking Peter Holland's place on the roster, McKegg made his NHL debut that night playing three minutes and 43 seconds. He registered two hits, one shot on goal, and won one of his six face-offs in helping Toronto to a 6-3 win over the visiting Ottawa Senators.[4]

On June 19, 2015, the Toronto Maple Leafs traded Greg McKegg to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Zach Hyman and a conditional 2017 draft pick. On September 25, 2015, was placed on waivers from Panthers to be assigned to affiliate, the Portland Pirates of the AHL.[5]

In the 2016–17 season, McKegg appeared in a career high 31 games with the Panthers for 6 points before he was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Lightning on February 27, 2017.[6]
