Doug Gilmour trades his son to another OHL team

Doug Gilmour played 20 years in the NHL and earned his way into the Hockey Hall of fame.

After retirement he took his knowledge of the game and turned it into a front office job as general manager of the OHL's Kingston Frontenacs.

Young Jake Gilmour is a prospect for his father's team. At least he was until the old man traded him away to the Niagara Ice Dogs for a 12th round draft pick.    

I guess there goes the father/son quality time. It had to be tough for Doug to trade his son, but he might get questioned at the next family dinner as to why he traded his son.

Doug Gilmour played 20 seasons in the NHL, scoring 450 goals and adding 964 assists with St. Louis, Calgary, Toronto, New Jersey, Chicago, Buffalo and Montreal before joining the Frontenacs.
