Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Grigor grew up in Toronto, Ontario and played junior with the local Young Rangers. In his final year of junior, 1935-36, he also played in the Toronto Mercantile Hockey League with the Toronto Dominions. He spent the next three years with a variety of commercial and OHA Senior A clubs before joining the Baltimore Orioles of the Eastern Amateur Hockey League in 1939. He recorded consecutive 20-goal seasons with Baltimore before returning to Toronto. Between 1941 and 1950, he continued to play for teams in the Mercantile league, the Toronto Hockey League's commercial division, and the OHA Senior A league.
On January 6, 1944, while a member of Stafford Industries of the Toronto Mercantile Hockey League, he made his NHL debut with the Chicago Black Hawks, scoring their only goal in a 6–1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs at Maple Leaf Gardens. His only other NHL appearance was a few weeks later, on January 28, when the Black Hawks again visited Toronto. The Globe and Mail reported that the Black Hawks would have liked to sign Grigor, but his job in a war plant kept him in Toronto.
He died at Toronto in 1979.
