Career

Left winger Scott Gruhl was an offensive player who spent parts of three years in the NHL during the 80s. Although his NHL impact was minimal, he was a top goal scorer in college and one of the most productive IHL scorers of all-time.

Born in Port Colborne, Ontario Gruhl spent two years at Northeastern University, then scored 94 points for the OHA's Sudbury Wolves in 1978–79. A few months later he signed as a free agent with the LA Kings and played a handful of games for them.

Beginning in 1979–80, Gruhl was a dominant scorer in the IHL. He scored 56 goals for the Saginaw Gears that season, his first of seven years with at least 40 goals.

In 1984–85, Gruhl was presented the James Gatschene Memorial Trophy as the league's MVP after scoring 62 goals for the Muskegon Mohawks. He followed up with 59 goals the next season with Muskegon Lumberjacks. Overall, Gruhl was named to the IHL first all-star team once and second all-star squad three times and played on four Turner Cup champions. He also dressed for six games with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1987–88 after signing as a free agent. The tricky forward played a couple of years in the ECHL before retiring in 1996. Gruhl left the game as the top goal scorer in the IHL history in terms of combined regular season and playoff totals.
