Stillman was a very productive player in his time in Florida, or anywhere else for that matter, and was known as a very intelligent player throughout his whole career. He was tried on both wings, and was quoted saying he liked the left side better but he could play right wing easily if needed. A player known for his hard work and dedication to the game, as well as his consistently good attitude towards player growth and teaching. Stillman had battled injuries in last years, with surgeries on both shoulders, both knees and he suffered a concussion.

Stillman was a gritty player on the ice, playing in 1,025 games and becoming one of only six players in history to win the Stanley Cup in consecutive seasons for different teams. Stillman won his first Cup with Tampa Bay in 2004 before signing with Carolina after the lockout that wiped out the 2004-05 season ended. Stillman's Hurricanes won the Cup in 2006. He represented Canada in 1999 World Championship.

Sons: Riley Stillman, Chase Stillman
Father-in-law: Bud Stefanski
