Dale DeGray was an eighth-round draft pick of the Calgary Flames, 162nd overall, from the Ontario Hockey League's Oshawa Generals in 1981.

DeGray played three seasons of junior in his home town and was known throughout the league for his solid defensive play. He was not afraid to mix it up with opponents either, spending almost 400 minutes in the penalty box during his tenure with the Generals. In his final year, he scored 20 goals and added 30 assists with 149 minutes in penalties.

DeGray got to play in his first NHL game as a member of the Flames during the 1985-86 season, but the following year he dressed for 27 games, scoring six goals and seven assists.

His NHL career also included brief stops in Toronto, Los Angeles, and Buffalo. His final NHL appearance came during the 1989-90 season as a member of the Sabres. He continued to play professional hockey in the minors for another eight years before retiring in 1999.

DeGray played in 153 NHL games, scoring 18 times while assisting on 47 others for 65 points. DeGray now focuses his attention on coaching and has already landed a head coaching position with the Rockford IceHogs of the United Hockey League.
