The North Bay, Ontario native came out of the Toronto junior hockey ranks, eventually signing on as a free agent with Conn Smythe’s Toronto Maple Leafs. Gracie made the jump from the OHA’sToronto Marlboros and appeared in eight games for the Leafs in the 1930–31 NHL season registering four goals and two assists for six points. The following season Gracie appeared in all forty eight regular season games for the Maple Leafs and all seven post-season contests. Playing on a line with Frank Finnigan and Harold Darragh he helped Toronto win a Stanley Cup in their first season at Maple Leaf Gardens, sweeping the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Final three games to none in the best-of-five series. Gracie would once again appear in all forty eight regular season games the following year with the Leafs, helping them back to the Stanley Cup final in 1932–33, where they faced off against New York once again, only to see the Rangers prevail in the final series three games to one.

Gracie’s time with Toronto came to an end after being traded to the Ottawa Senators for Hec Kilrea before the start of the 1933–34 season. Ottawa in turn, immediately dealt him the same day to the Boston Bruins for Percy Galbraith, Bud Cook and Teddy Saunders. Gracie played the first 24 games of the season for the Bruins before being traded again, this time to the New York Americans. He played the remaining 24 games for New York appearing in all 48 games of the regular season for the third consecutive year.
