Pucks On The 'Net: Sorry Son, I Traded You

Here's a story you don't hear everyday:


A strong family connection might have brought forward Jake Gilmour to the Ontario Hockey League's Kingston Frontenacs, but it didn't keep him there.

Frontenacs general manager Doug Gilmour sent his son packing Wednesday, shipping Jake, goaltender Blake Richard and a conditional 12th round pick in 2015 to Niagara for the IceDogs 12th round pick in 2015.
