Throwback Thursday: Breaking Records

Gilmour Star 10Two of the most recognizable and storied Leafs of recent generations. Former captains of the Blue and White, Darryl Sittler and Doug Gilmour. Both have their numbers hanging in the rafters at Air Canada Centre, were inducted in to the Hockey Hall of Fame, and hold franchise records. And just over 20 years ago one of Darryl Sittler’s franchise records was broken by none other than Doug Gilmour.

With an assist against the Oilers on March 27, 1993, Doug Gilmour broke Darryl Sittler’s record for points in a Leafs single season. At the end of the 1977/78 season Darryl Sittler had 117 points, Doug Gilmour would surpass that and finish the 1992/93 season with 127. That 1992/93 season was the first

full one in the blue and white for Dougie and a successful one it was. Playing a key role in the playoffs that year he collected 35 points in the postseason, finished second in voting for the Hart Trophy, and was recognized as the best defensive forward in the league with the Selke Trophy.

Both of these famous Leafs were on hand this past Monday for A Night With Blue and White at old Maple Leaf Gardens and shared some of their memories from playing in the historic building.
