John Gilmour: Signs overseas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour penned a one-year contract with KHL side CSKA Moscow on Monday.

Gilmour played in four games for the Sabres this past year in which he generated five shots, three hits and three blocks while averaging 17:03 of ice time. The 27-year-old blueliner has logged 37 contests for the Rangers and Sabres but may not be able to secure any additional action in the NHL.

Sabres' John Gilmour: Ushered to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres reassigned Gilmour to AHL Rochester on Sunday.

The 26-year-old was brought up for Saturday's game to provide depth on the blue line with Lawrence Pilut battling an illness. Gilmour will head back to the minors, where he's produced 13 points in 36 AHL games this season.

Sabres' John Gilmour: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour was recalled from AHL Rochester on Saturday.

With Lawrence Pilut battling an illness, Gilmour could slot in on the blue line later Saturday in Philadelphia. If not, Gilmour will serve as insurance in case of further injuries while he's up with Buffalo.

Sabres' John Gilmour: Dropped down a level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buffalo assigned Gilmour to AHL Rochester on Thursday.

The Sabres promoted defenseman Lawrence Pilut in a corresponding move, so Gilmour's likely in for an extended stay in the minors. The 26-year-old defenseman has gone scoreless in four appearances with the big club this campaign.

Sabres' John Gilmour: Summoned to The Show
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres recalled Gilmour from AHL Rochester on Saturday.

The 26-year-old had played four games with the Sabres before he was placed on waivers Nov. 22 and sent to the minors. Gilmour has had a decent season in Rochester, collecting 13 points through 32 games. His first chance to suit up with the big club again is in Sunday's game against Toronto.

Sabres' John Gilmour: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour was waived by the Sabres on Friday in order to move him to the minors.

Gilmour became expendable after Zach Bogosian was activated off injured reserve. The blueliner played in just four games this season for Buffalo, but he should see a heavy workload with AHL Rochester. If any additional injuries pop up, the Montreal native will be atop the list of potential call-ups.

Sabres' John Gilmour: Seeing limited action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour has appeared in just four games this season.

This isn't too surprising seeing that Gilmour is lower on the Sabres depth chart. He has no points in the four contests he's appeared in, and he's unlikely to appear in many more games unless injuries strike.

Sabres' John Gilmour: Stuck in press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour has yet to appear in a game this season.

Gilmour was a free-agent signee in the summer, but he's been a healthy scratch during each of Buffalo's seven contests. The Sabres are deep on defense, so don't expect much playing time for Gilmour this season.

Sabres' John Gilmour: Secures one-way deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour agreed to terms on a one-year, one-way contract with Buffalo on Monday worth $700,000, Frank Seravalli of reports.

Gilmour saw action in just five NHL games with the Rangers last season, but it seems the Sabres have seen enough to warrant a one-way deal with the blueliner. With the Wolf Pack last year, the 2013 seventh-round pick racked up 20 goals and 34 helpers and will get every opportunity to secure a spot in the lineup Opening Night versus Winnipeg on Oct. 3.

Rangers' John Gilmour: Descends to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers reassigned Gilmour to AHL Hartford on Sunday.

Gilmour played in five games for the Rangers down the stretch, finishing with zero points and a minus-3 rating. Gilmour will continue his development with AHL Hartford, which has four games remaining in the regular season and won't make the playoffs. The 25-year-old has 53 points through 66 games with the minor-league squad this season.

Rangers' John Gilmour: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour was recalled from AHL Hartford on Monday.

Gilmour set a Wolf Pack record this season, scoring 20 goals as a defenseman. With 53 points in 66 AHL games, the 25-year-old has been a top-level producer at the minor league level in 2018-19. He has yet to play an NHL game this year, but Gilmour did tally a pair of goals and five points in 28 games with New York in 2017-18.

Rangers' John Gilmour: Sets AHL franchise record
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour scored twice and added an assist in AHL Hartford's 4-3 overtime win over Binghamton on Wednesday.

Gilmour's 20 goals are a new single-season franchise record for a Wolf Pack defenseman. His strong play has been the one constant for what has been arguably the worst team in the AHL this year. Gilmour's overall numbers are stellar (51 points in 64 games) and it's easy to see why he has been named an AHL All-Star each of the past two seasons. With impressive rookie defender Libor Hajek out for the season due to a shoulder injury and the Rangers in the thick of the #LoseForHughes race, the club would be wise to give Gilmour a look for the remainder of the year. He is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Gilmour won't struggle to find work if New York decides to move on.

Rangers' John Gilmour: Playing well for AHL Hartford
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour posted a goal and four assists to help lead AHL Hartford to a 6-5 overtime win over Lehigh Valley on Friday.

Just 40 games into his third professional season, Gilmour has already set a new career high in both goals (11) and points (30). He was recently named an AHL All-Star for a second straight campaign and he has put himself in position for a recall to New York in the near future. Gilmour played the final 28 games of the 2017-18 season with the Rangers and he could be looking at a similar situation this time around. The 25-year-old has the smarts and mobility to stick as a third-pairing defender at the NHL level.

Rangers' John Gilmour: Inks one-year deal with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour signed a one-year contract with the Rangers on Monday.

The 25-year-old blueliner played 28 games during his rookie 2017-18 campaign, scoring a pair of goals and five points in the process. He also notched 12 goals and 51 points in 120 games with AHL Hartford over the last two seasons. Gilmour will likely play in a bottom-pair role with limited fantasy upside in the 2018-19 season.

Rangers' John Gilmour: Won't hit open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmour has received a qualifying offer from the Rangers.

Gilmour looked raw as a rookie last season, posting two goals and three assists to go with a minus-11 rating in 14 games. The 25-year-old defenseman will compete for a roster spot on a young Rangers club in 2018-19.

Rangers' John Gilmour: Shows flashes in first NHL stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' John Gilmour: Playing heavy minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' John Gilmour: Scores first NHL goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' John Gilmour: Recalled by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
