It happened in his basement.
Gregg was playing with sons Jamie and Ryan, then aged 5 and 4. As they got ready to drop the puck for their regular game of floor hockey, Jamie declared, "Dad, I want to be Mark Messier."
Added Ryan: "Dad, I want to be Jeff Beukeboom."
Still, there is one area in which three of the four Gregg kids want to be just like Mom and Dad – they want to be Canadian Olympians.
