Don "The Count" Grosso played over 300 NHL games in the 30s and 40s. He was good scorer and checker who rarely found himself in the penalty box.

Born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Grosso first made a name for himself with the Detroit Mundus of the MOHL in 1933-34. He then spent five years in the NOHA with Sudbury Falconbridge, and Kirkland Lake. Late in the 1938-39 season the young forward joined the Detroit Red Wings and scored two points in his debut. He also impressed with three points in the semifinal loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

After missing the first part of the 1939-40 season to injury, Grosso was a solid role player in his rookie season. After another year spent as a checker, he burst out with 23 goals in 1941-42 while playing with Eddie Wares and Sid Abel. During the postseason he was brilliant with 14 points in 12 matches while helping the Wings reach the finals. That year they blew a 3 games to 0 lead to Toronto but rebounded the next season to sweep Boston in the championship round. Once again Grosso was a top performer with four goals and some determined checking.

In January, 1945, Grosso was dealt to the Chicago Black Hawks as part of the package for Earl Seibert. He was a solid two way performer for his new club but the Hawks were humiliated in the semifinals by Montreal in 1946. A few weeks later the veteran forward was sent to the Boston Bruins for cash but was strictly a utility player before he was relegated to the minors. Grosso spent 2 1/2 years in the AHL including a 34-goal performance for the St. Louis Flyers in 1947-48. He coached the NOHA's Soo Greyhounds for two years then came out of retirement for four games in 1951-52 before hanging up his skates for good.
