Welcome to the club
|Class of 2011 Hall of Fame inductee Doug Gilmour|
A dominant physical force despite his 5-foot-11 frame, the Selke Trophy winner was at his best when it mattered most, posting 188 points in 182 playoff games – including 22 points en route to a Stanley Cup championship with the Flames in 1989. Gilmour is seventh all-time in NHL playoff scoring behind only Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Jari Kurri, Glenn Anderson, Paul Coffey and Brett Hull.
The Kingston, ON native suited up for 131 games with the Canadiens in his two seasons in Montreal, stepping up for Saku Koivu when the Habs captain was out with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2001-02. The 20-year NHL veteran tied Donald Audette and Koivu for the team lead with 10 points in 12 playoff games that spring. Gilmour is joined by Joe Nieuwendyk, Ed Belfour and Mark Howe in the Hall of Fame Class of 2011.
