Goaltender Tom McGrattan played just one game in the NHL and it occurred on November 9, 1947 when he filled in for the injured Harry Lumley. McGrattan was between the pipes for the final eight minutes of the game and did not allow a goal. Unfortunately for the Red Wings, the Toronto Maple Leafs had already built up a one-sided 6-0 score in the previous 52 minutes.

McGrattan, born in Brantford, Ontario, played Junior B hockey with the Brantford Lions in 1944-45 as a 17-year old. He then played two years at the Junior A level with the Galt Red Wings and the Windsor Spitfires.

After playing his one and only NHL game with the Detroit Red Wings, McGrattan played the 1948-49 season with the Owen Sound Mercurys of the OHA Senior League, retiring from competitive hockey at the age of 21.
