    Hockey great gets his namesake .com.

    Former NHL great Doug Gilmour, who was inducted into the hockey hall of fame this year, has won a UDRP proceeding over the domain name DougGilmour.com.

    I remember watching Gilmour play for the St. Louis Blues in the 1980s.

    The registrant of the domain name said he was Gilmour “biggest fan” and that he had registered it as a fan site. He also argued that Gilmours likeness belongs to the National Hockey League and not Gilmour, which was an interesting argument to say the lease.

    Yet the domain name promoted hockeyvideohighlights.com, a commercial site apparently operated by the registrant. HockeyVideoHighlights.com expired on December 11.

    The panel found that the domain name was registered in bad faith and that the registrant had no rights or legitimate interests in the domain name. It will be transferred to Gilmour within the next 10 days.

  • I have a good ole 93 jersey from his time in Toronto. Even met him once and had a stick signed, should have never done that…turns out when youre 14 years old and your hockey hero turns out to be 5 foot 5 and 160 pds (much smaller than you) things change.

  • great to see doug prove people wrong and those who believed in him right. was your 1st hockey artist in st.louis and saw all 20 years.also had your stick pattern # number and used them for years. those titans were weapons!!

  • remember the monday night miracle!!

  • Ron Sulack,
    Do you still do hockey illustrations? I had one of your drawings years ago but lost it in a move. Would love to get another.
