Review of Doug Gilmour’s Killer

Review of Doug Gilmour’s Killer

As a little kid, first bitten by the hockey bug, I had a pet rabbit. I named it after my favourite player, Doug Gilmour.

When the opportunity to give his memoir, Killer, a review, I jumped at it. I’ve been waiting for Dougie to put out a hockey book for some time, and the result (with an assist from Dan Robson) did not disappoint. As far as hockey books go, this one’s a fun, insightful read. Sure, it might not be in the same league as Ken Dryden’s The Game, but few (if any) hockey memoirs are.

Gilmour made a stop in Winnipeg a few weeks after the book was released, to sign copies at McNally Robinson. Me and my old pal and Lumbercats teammate Scotty “From Canada” Wareham waited in line for our a few minutes with Killer. As Grapes would say, “What a beauty!”
