Now being ranked amongst the top 50 prospects for the upcoming 2022 OHL draft, Rory Gilmour has continued to improve since last season. Gilmour’s offensive ability is a game-changer, which helped him rise to the top 3 in HEO scoring in past years. Packing an OHL grade shot, and strong skating, Gilmour serves to be a deadly offensive threat for his opponents both 5-on-5 and on the power play. Due to his past pedigree, it was easy for Gilmour to step into a role on the U18 role, allowing him to eat up to 30 minutes a night over the span of the first two months of the season. Gilmour has also taken great steps towards becoming a two-way defender, increasing his defensive ability greatly over the off-season, which has helped him continue to be utilized against the league's top players. Gilmour’s leadership ability is also uncontested, with him wearing a C in previous seasons with the Upper Canada Cyclones, and now sports an A for Kemptville. Gilmour, being a rural boy, backs down from nothing, and though he is small, he plays big and physical and can lug a puck down the ice or break it out. Gilmour is also a very tough nut to crack and is incredibly tough mentally. Coming into the draft, Gilmour is more than solidifying himself as a potential first-round talent, where he could step in as a reliable two-way defender that can contribute to the team's offense. Gilmour is one of the top available defensemen no question, which could see him going high in the draft, as any team would love to have a strong two-way defender who can bring leadership to his team. Gilmour likely could step into the OHL within a year of his initial draft, if not in his first eligible season.
