Learn more about Doug Gilmour:
Doug Gilmour was drafted into the NHL in 1982 by the St. Louis Blues. He quickly earned the nickname “Killer” due to his aggressive physical style of play despite his smaller stature. Gilmour was part of the largest trade in NHL history bringing him from Calgary to Toronto where he immediately helped to revitalize the struggling Toronto Maple Leafs.
Gilmour broke both personal and franchise scoring records with the Leafs in his first full season with the organization and ultimately led them to finish the 1992-93 season with the eighth best record in the NHL and their first winning season since 1978-79. Gilmour was one of the most popular players on the Leafs during tenure. Despite his status as fan favorite, Gilmour was traded in 1997 to the New Jersey Devils and subsequently played for the Chicago Blackhawks. With the Blackhawks, Gilmour returned to Toronto to play the last game in historic Maple Leaf Garden receiving a standing ovation by the Toronto fans during the Garden’s closing ceremonies. After a few more trades, Gilmour returned to Toronto where he played only one game before an injury caused him to miss the remainder of the season. Gilmour officially announced his retirement on September 8, 2003. Gilmour had scored 450 goals and 964 assists in 1474 games over his 20 year NHL career.
On January 31, 2009 Gilmour’s number 93 was raised to the rafters by the Toronto Maple Leafs and he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2011.
