Gray played for only 40 minutes of one NHL game, the November 28, 1963 match against the Montreal Canadiens. He received credit for the loss after allowing 5 goals on 31 shots in a 7-3 loss at Detroit. As of the start of the 2015-2016 NHL season, this game remains the last time an emergency non-roster replacement went from the stands to an NHL game. Gray took over for the injured Terry Sawchuck.
From 1964 to 1969, Gray played another 318 games in the EHL before retiring from professional hockey.
