Greg Thomas was inducted into the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2006. He began his 27-year lacrosse career in Peterborough, which included four seasons on the P.C.O’s Junior A team, which won a Minto Cup in 1972.

The next year, Thomas headed west to tend goal for the Coquitlam Seniors for 10 years, and a single season each with the New Westminster and Vancouver Burrards. He had a career save percentage of 74.3 per cent in 269 games. He also scored an infamous goalie goal – bringing his point total to one goal and 330 career assists. His best game saw one goal and five assists.

This productivity led to three All-Star Team selections in the Western Lacrosse Association, and he backstopped Canada West in the 1980 World Box Lacrosse Tournament. Other personal awards include the Maitland Trophy in 1979 and the Leo Nicholson Memorial Trophy as the WLA MVP in 1981. After he retired from play, he coached youth lacrosse for 8 seasons.
