Seasons captain: 1999-2000

Playoff appearances: 0

Longest playoff run: N/A

Regular-season statistics as captain: 63 games, 22 goals, 34 assists

Gilmour’s Hall of Fame career was winding down when he joined a sinking Blackhawks organization for the 1998-99 season. He had a full stat sheet in his captaincy season a year later, tallying three game-winning goals, 20 powerplay points and 19:59 of ice time per night. There just wasn’t much Gilmour could do to drag the Blackhawks to competency, as they finished nine points clear of the playoffs. Gilmour didn’t even make it to the end of the season in Chicago. He was moved to Buffalo with less than 15 games to go in the regular season and helped the Sabres narrowly make the playoffs, though they’d suffer a first-round exit.
