NHL Draft Results: Wild Select Center Adam Gilmour In 4th Round

The Minnesota Wild went back on the offensive in round four of the NHL Draft, selecting American center Adam Gilmour with the 98th overall pick.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Gilmour played prep hockey at Nobel and Greenough School in Dedham, MA, where he had a strong season, scoring 26 goals and adding 30 assists in 26 games. Gilmour was the second overall pick by the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the United States Hockey League's draft in late May. Additionally, Gilmour also committed to play for Boston College.

Here is a little insight on Gilmour from the Muskegon website following his selection in May with a reminder of these young prospects are far from the finished product.

Interestingly, Gilmour averaged exactly two points per game in 2011-12 after scoring precisely one per outing (27 in 27) as a junior, a boost facilitated by growing accustomed to his newfound size and strength.

"Two years ago I went through a major growth spurt so it was tough getting used to," said the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder. "This year I really came into my own. I got quicker feet and became stronger on the puck. The extra reach really helps out there, also."

Gilmour is skilled at both playmaking and scoring, making him quite the challenging mark for opposing skaters. He's also not afraid to challenge himself, as his time at the academically rigorous Nobles prep can attest.
