Gilroy was 21 years old when he started playing college hockey. He was playing in a 2nd tier junior league during his draft year where he was far, far away from any NHL scout's boards. Some guys are just late bloomers. Hopefully Gilroy hasn't fully bloomed yet, because he needs to get a lot better to stick in the NHL.
