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.

 

Talent Analysis

A relatively well-rounded player with good size and skating, Gilmour is on a good track developmentally.

 

Future

Gilmour will be a freshman at Boston College in 2013-14. The traditional hockey power will bring the underclassman along slowly, but Gilmour has proven to be a quick learner who could earn some significant minutes by the spring.

The Wild has moved into a developmental phase that features a solid cluster of prospects playing together on the AHL's Houston Aeros. This leaves a smaller group of young men still playing at the junior level.

Minnesota Wild’s prospect pool boasts top-end talent and character

The Wild is still in the midst of a controlled rebuilding process. While the team has added immediate help at the NHL level for some areas of deficiency, most notably an elite top-pairing defenseman in Ryan Suter, an underrated top-four defenseman in Tom Gilbert, and an all-star scoring winger in Zach Parise, a few barren years at the draft kept the team from contention recently. Very strong drafts in 2010 and 2011, punctuated by the trade for Charlie Coyle, have put the team in excellent shape to be contenders soon. The core might be able to take advantage of the NHL lockout to grow together at the AHL level. Part of the Minnesota mentality is knowing there is a long winter ahead to test for weaknesses. With luck, this group of prospects will emerge strong and battle-tested.

Next wave of Minnesota Wild prospects debuting in AHL top story of 2012-13

The Wild by design has its top prospects all scheduled to play professional hockey this season. Though obviously dependent on the quick resolution of  labor strife at the NHL level, Mikael Granlund should be playing with the Wild while an excellent group of young players in Matt Hackett, Jonas Brodin, Charlie Coyle, Zack Phillips, Johan Larsson, Jason Zucker, and Brett Bulmer are presumably going to be playing with the AHL's Houston Aeros. The AHL as a whole will be be fun to watch this year. For Wild fans it is a glimpse of a promising future.
