Hockey Legend Coming to Burlington
Easy, Killer — his memoir bares all about on-and-off-the-ice exploits and escapades, including why he didn’t want to leave the Leafs for the Canucks, and now Canadian legend and Hockey Hall of Famer is going to be in Burlington for a book signing.
Perhaps you can ask him about his new beer collaboration with Whitewater Brewing? It was launched over the summer and it’s called KLR93.
Doug Gilmour will be making an appearance at Chapters (3315 Fairview St.) on Saturday, Nov. 25 at 10 a.m.
It’s all for his new book, Killer: My Life in Hockey,released last month.
Gilmour played for seven teams over 20 years, netting 450 goals and 964 assists during the regular season and another 188 points in the playoffs, making him one of the highest-scoring NHL centres of all time.
He scored the winning goal for the Calgary Flames in their 1989 Stanley Cup victory and led Toronto Maple Leafs to multiple winning seasons.
Last year, Gilmour’s letter to his 13-year-old self was published in the Players’ Tribune.
