“Killer” is coming to Prince Albert.

Doug Gilmour has been announced as this year’s guest speaker for the 10th annual Sportsman Dinner sponsored by the Kinsmen Club of Prince Albert, the Prince Albert Raiders, and the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group.  

Gilmour earned his nickname because of his physical style of play, despite his small stature. He played 20 seasons in the NHL and was part of Calgary’s 1989 Stanley Cup championship team.

“We are thrilled to partner with this outstanding group to bring Doug Gilmour to Prince Albert this year,” Prince Albert Raiders Business Manager Mike Scissons said.

Each year, the evening honours a major sports athlete or personality as the Kinsmen Male and Female Athletes of the Year and Sportsperson of the Year. Past recipients include Brittany Hudak, Tanner Byrne, Brooke Hobson and Whitney Darchuk Parenteau.

Scissons said, “nominees should be deserving athletes who represent their city and community well.”

The awards will be handed out at a dinner on Saturday, Oct. 28 in the Ches Leach Lounge in the Art Hauser Centre. In addition to a speech by Gilmour, the evening will include live and silent auctions, as well as other games and opportunities to win prizes. All proceeds raised through the charity fundraiser will benefit the Prince Albert Raider’s Education Fund and areas the Kinsmen Club of Prince Albert identify as being the community’s greatest needs.

The call for nominations for Kinsmen Male and Female and Sportsperson of the year continues until Sept. 22 and can be submitted through CKBI’s website.
