Wendel Clark and Doug Gilmour will be honoured by the Toronto Maple Leafs in separate pre-game ceremonies this season.

Both former captains will have banners hoisted at the Air Canada Centre.

Clark's No. 17 sweater number will be raised to the rafters when the Maple Leafs host the Chicago Blackhawks on Nov. 22.

Gilmour's No. 93 will be immortalized Jan. 31, prior to Toronto's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

They will be the 16th and 17th notables singled out by the Maple Leafs, who have honoured the contributions of Johnny Bower (1), Turk Broda (1), Hap Day (4), Red Kelly (4), King Clancy (7), Tim Horton (7), Charlie Conacher (9), Teeder Kennedy (9), Syl Apps (10), George Armstrong (10), Borje Salming (21), Frank Mahovlich (27) and Darryl Sittler (27).

Toronto officially retired the numbers of Bill Barilko (5) and Ace Bailey (6). 

Clark, 41, was drafted first overall in 1985 by the Maple Leafs, who transformed him from a defenceman into a punishing winger with a rocket of a wrist shot. 

The Kelvington, Sask., native enjoyed three stints with Toronto, wearing blue and white in 12½ of his 18 NHL seasons.

Clark posted 330 and 234 assists for 564 points with 1,690 penalty minutes in 793 NHL games with the Maple Leafs, Quebec Nordiques, New York Islanders, Tampa Bay Lightning, Detroit Red Wings and Blackhawks.

He retired on June 29, 2000, and still holds Toronto's record for playoff goals with 34.

Gilmour, 45, compiled 452 points in 392 games with the Maple Leafs, setting franchise highs with 95 assists and 127 points in 1992-93.

He also owns team marks for playoff assists (60) and playoff points (77).

Gilmour, from Kingston, Ont., retired with 450 goals and 1,414 points with 1,299 penalty minutes in 1,474 games over 23 NHL seasons with the St. Louis Blues, Calgary Flames, Maple Leafs, New Jersey Devils, Blackhawks, Buffalo Sabres and Montreal Canadiens.

Both Clark and Gilmour remain employed by the Maple Leafs — as a community relations ambassador and player development adviser, respectively.
