On This Day October 19th.

October 19: On this day in 1982, the Leafs acquired left winger Greg Terrion from the L.A. Kings in exchange for a 4th round draft choice. Terrion played 427 regular season games for the Leafs in difficult times for the club between 1982 and 1988 and put up 169 points. He was a strong defensive forward and in the 32 playoff games he played for the Leafs, he contributed solidly to the little playoff success the Leafs enjoyed in the 1980's. He holds the distinction of being the only Leaf in team history to score on two penalty shots in one season, 1983-84.
