Born in Toronto, Ontario, Peter Ing was the third goalie selected in the 1988 National Hockey League Entry Draft. The Leafs made him their third-round choice, 48th overall, that year in the Draft.
A standout performer with the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey at the time, Ing joined the Leafs and made his NHL debut on November 16, 1989 against the New York Islanders. He led Toronto goalies in starts (56) during the 1990-91 season.
Ing may best be remembered for stopping the NHL's all-time leading scorer, Wayne Gretzky, on a penalty shot at a sold out Maple Leaf Gardens and in front of a national TV audience on CBC's Hockey Night In Canada when the Los Angeles Kings faced the Leafs on January 5, 1991.
Ing was a part of the Leafs and Oilers memorable seven- player trade on September 19, 1991 which saw Grant Fuhr and Glenn Anderson join Toronto. He was traded to the Detroit Red Wings prior to the 1993-94 season and retired from professional hockey in 1996.
