Celebrating Doug Gilmour's Birthday In Style

Today is Doug Gilmour's birthday, so what better way to honour the Hall of Famer by showcasing his hilarious set of hockey cards? Gilmour had some great moments in his career: winning the Stanley Cup, winning the '87 Canada Cup, and scoring 1414 points in his career, but often when you Google his name, his goofy hockey cards pop up. It's up for debate if participating in the Be A Player hockey card series is among Killer's career highlights, but we sure are glad he did those photoshoots.

Here's a look at some of Dougie's best hockey cards:

Gilmour seems like a pretty good model, but apparently if he didn't play hockey he really wanted to be an actor. Killer even appeared on a few Canadian TV shows, including Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. Dougie pops up around the 5:00 mark, but the whole clip (or entire episode) is worth watching to showcase Canadian television in the 1990s.
