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.
