(Sept 8, 2003) -- The following is statement released by the Toronto Maple Leafs regarding the retirement of Doug Gilmour.
"Doug Gilmour was the 'heart and soul' of the Toronto Maple Leafs and he wore our sweater with pride. There were very few players that ever played and contributed as much to a hockey team as Doug did for the Leafs in 1993 and 1994. The game itself will miss his intensity, passion and his desire to compete each time he stepped on the ice."
"We wish Doug and his family all the best in their future endeavours."
