Gilmour scored two goals and three assists in 28 games this season. The former Providence College Friar was recalled from AHL Hartford in February and played in each of the Rangers' 28 remaining regular season contests. Gilmour also spent 44 games with Hartford, picking up six goals and 20 assists, as well as being named an AHL All Star. Though Gilmour's not particularly effective on the defensive end -- he owns a minus-65 rating over 148 professional contests -- he's a swift skater and has the ability to quarterback a power-play unit.
Gilmour registered team highs in ice time (23:49) and power-play time (1:19) in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Jets. All that usage resulted in just one shot, a minus-2 rating and two blocked shots, but it's apparent a Rangers team that sold off a multitude of pieces at the trade deadline wants to get as good a look as possible at the 24-year-old blueliner. While Gilmour has just two goals and an assist in 13 NHL appearances, he did have 26 points in 44 games with AHL Hartford this season before earning the call-up.
Gilmour potted his first NHL goal and fired five shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Wild. Making just his third NHL appearance, Gilmour got his team on the board with the extra man in the opening period after the hosts had raced out to a 3-0 lead. These weren't the ideal circumstances for such a milestone, but the 24-year-old defenseman's 10 shots on goal through three appearances with New York and presence with the extra man (1:22 PP time) suggest plenty more goals are to come.
The Rangers recalled Gilmour from AHL Hartford on Friday. The Rangers only had six healthy defensemen on their roster prior to Gilmour's promotion, so he'll round out their depth at defense until Marc Staal (neck) is given the green light to return. The 2013 seventh-round pick has totaled six goals and 26 points in 44 contests with AHL Hartford this campaign.
