Playing careerEdit

Gravel previously played collegiate hockey for St. Cloud State University in the NCAA Men's Division I National Collegiate Hockey Conference. After his senior year, Gravel continued his 2013–14 season by signing an amateur try-out contract with the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL.

On August 4, 2014, Gravel continued within the Los Angeles Kings organization, in agreeing to a one-year AHL contract to continue with affiliate, the Monarchs.[1] In his first full professional season in 2014–15, Gravel established a position on the blueline with the Monarchs, contributing to the club's first Calder Cup Championship in their last season in the AHL.

On July 2, 2015, the Los Angeles Kings signed Gravel to a two-year entry-level contract.[2] To begin the 2015–16 season, Gravel was reassigned to new AHL affiliate, the Ontario Reign. After 42 games with the Reign, Gravel received his first NHL recall to the Kings on February 11, 2016.[3] Gravel recorded his first NHL goal on February 23, 2017 in a game against the Boston Bruins.[4]

On July 1, 2018, Gravel signed as a free agent to a one-year, two-way contract with the Edmonton Oilers.[5]
