To the surprise of very few, Boston College junior forward Adam Gilmour has signed an entry-level contract with the Minnesota Wild, as first reported by TSN's Bob McKenzie.
Gilmour is a big, power forward, whose inconsistency frustrated many close to the BC program. When he played with a purpose and used his size and physical tools to his advantage, he was an intimidating force in the offensive zone. But, all too often, he seemed to just be in auto pilot, lacking that extra gear.
The Hanover, Mass. native had 12 goals and 14 assists in 41 games played this season. A product of Nobles and the Muskegon Lumberjacks, he finished his NCAA career with 28 goals and 45 assists in 119 games.
Gilmour is the third Eagle to leave the program early following Thursday's 3-2 loss to Quinnipiac in the Frozen Four Semifinals. He joins junior defenseman Steve Santini and freshman forward Miles Wood, both of whom signed with the New Jersey Devils.
