Doug Gilmour has been a regular skater in the annual Scotiabank Pro-Am for Alzheimer’s, but this year the reason for the successful fund-raising tournament will hit the Hockey Hall of Famer a little closer to the heart.
“I lost my father about seven months ago, and the last three months he had dementia,” Gilmour said.
A well-known member of Kingston, Ont., hockey and baseball organizations, Gilmour’s father, Donald, passed away in September after a lengthy illness. He was 81.
