History

2009-10: Adam Gilmour skated for the South Shore Kings and Boston Advantage U16 teams. He  competed in the Beantown Classic’s pre-draft division in March and committed to playing college hockey at Quinnipiac in 2013-14.

2010-11: Gilmour played for the Noble and Greenough School in Massachusetts in the New England Prep School League. Transferring to the school as a sophomore, he scored 11 goals with 16 assists and had 8 penalty minutes in 27 games for the Bulldogs. Noble and Greenough finished with a 17-10 record, losing to eventual prep champion Milton Academy in triple overtime in the New England prep quarterfinals.

2011-12: Gilmour was the leading scorer for Noble and Greenough as the Bulldogs finished 23-5-1 and reached the New England prep championship game. In 28 games he scored 26 goals with 30 assists. Noble and Greenough lost to Lawrence Academy, 3-2, in the championship game. Gilmour de-committed from attending Quinnipiac and committed to playing college hockey at Boston College. Ranked 101st amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings, he was selected by Minnesota in the fourth round (98th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.

2012-13: Gilmour led the Muskegon Lumberjacks in scoring in his first USHL season. He scored 19 goals with 28 assists in 64 games and was +17 with 12 penalty minutes. Muskegon finished fourth in the Eastern Division and faced eventual Clark Cup champion Dubuque in a first-round playoff series. Gilmour scored 1 goal and was +1 with 10 penalty minutes in the three-game series.

2013-14: Gilmour skated in all 40 games for Boston College as a freshman. Frequently skating alongside fellow freshman Chris Calnan (CHI) on the Eagles’ fourth line, he scored 7 goals with 13 assists and was +6 with 10 penalty minutes. After finishing the regular season 25-4-4 and capturing the Hockey East regular season title, the Eagles were upset by Notre Dame in a best-of-three quarterfinal series in the conference tournament. BC defeated Massachusetts-Lowell to capture the NCAA Northeast Regional championship and lost to eventual national champion Union in the Frozen Four semifinals. 

Talent Analysis

Gilmour is a relatively well-rounded player with good size and skating, After skating in a lower line role and providing supplementary scoring for Boston College in his freshman season, he is among the Eagles leading scorers as a sophomore. More of a playmaker than a pure goal scorer he plays a responsible game in all three zones and has the prototypical stature of an effective two-way forward. He should continue to develop while at Boston College.

Future

Gilmour is in his sophomore season at Boston College in 2014-15. With the top four scorers from last year's Hockey East championship team now in pro hockey — including NHL Calder Trophy hopefuls Johnny Gaudreau and Kevin Hayes — Gilmour has moved from a lower line role to a top line slot. While he doesn't project as a big-time scorer at the NHL level his ability to play a variety of roles and his positional awareness suggest he will be the type of effective two-way forward that is common on most winning teams.

After five years on the job general manager Chuck Fletcher has made his mark on the Minnesota Wild, swiftly rebuilding a franchise that had lost its way. He has assembled a promising young core of Mikael Granlund, Jonas Brodin, Nino Niederreiter, Charlie Coyle, Jared Spurgeon, Erik Haula, Darcy Kuemper, Matt Dumba, and Christian Folin. With a strong group of veterans brought in via trade and free agency to supplement the few holdovers from the prior administrative regime, this leaves very little room for true prospects at the moment.

This season, Hockey East features 50 NHL prospects representing all the member schools. Notre Dame leads all Hockey East teams with 10 prospects, followed by Boston College with nine and Boston University with seven. Meanwhile, the University of Connecticut makes their Hockey East debut this season, bringing the number of member schools to 12. Read more»

Listing the Minnesota Wild‘s Top 20 Prospect Group is a more difficult exercise this fall, with a fairly clear-cut top four (including Erik Haula, who should graduate soon) followed by another 20 or so players with only a little separation. The Wild also added a lot of new blood to bolster the farm system, pushing some familiar names out of the Top 20.

By way of reintroducing the good people of Des Moines to professional hockey, the Wild fell well short of making a splash this season. In the NHL, a playoff berth and first-round series win over Central Division winner Colorado are real accomplishments, but there were moments of intense growing pains.
