Gilmour is a good two-way forward with some offensive upside. He displays good, strong strides and is very good on his edges but could quicken his first few steps. He has a good feel for the puck and makes crisp, accurate passes. He backchecks well and shows good stick positioning. He is a very hardworker and is quite smart with the puck; keeps his head up and is always aware of the play.

He started off the year making simple plays and playing an unspectacular game but over the course of the season, his confidence grew and began to use his creativity and stick skills more often. This helped his offensive game grow and suggests he has top six forward potential.

There are still question marks on whether he can translate this upside against tougher competition as Massachusetts high school hockey is still considered a tier lower than the CHL or USHL. He could also improve his quickness but the combination of size, skating ability, hockey sense and two-way play is very intriguing.

The Muskegon Lumberjacks of the USHL also share a positive impression on Gilmour as they recently drafted him second overall in the USHL draft. He will get plenty of ice time against proper competition, great for his future development.
