The NHL team hired its former captain on Friday to become the
player personnel advisor to general manager John Ferguson.
Gilmour twice played for the Maple Leafs and retired as a member
of the team after suffering a serious knee injury in 2003.
He took over as captain in 1994 during his first stint with the Leafs and held the position for three years.
Gilmour played 1,474 NHL games with Calgary, St. Louis, Toronto, Buffalo, Chicago, New Jersey and Montreal. He won the Stanley Cup with the Flames in 1989.
