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.

Kid rips it up. But it is High Schoool. Almost a GPG, though. Already 6'2" and 194 pounds. Nice size.

He's a 6'2" // 195 guy. Put up points last year. Going to BC, a great school to develop his skills. I like it!

Intriguing pick. Big centers are always intriguing.

In the words of the guy who posted above me two posts above me:

Quote:
“I absolutely adore this kid,” Chan said. “My first viewing of this kid I came away thinking he’s
okay, has good size, skated well, and made simple plays. He showed off solid skating, a good
forechecking game and was responsible in both ends, good enough for late round consideration. But in the next few games I saw him, he started to display some creativity and impressive stick skills.”

i always have reservations about kids going to "other" NCAA programs. Hate to cheer against them in hypothetical championship brackets.

yeah i'm not mourning their development--just it feels slightly dirty cheering either for them or against them.
