Gilmour is a 5-foot-10 and 181-pound center from Cobourg, Ontario, Canada. After getting drafted, his focus shifted to the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), where he played four years with the Saginaw Spirit. During his time in Saginaw, he played in 231 games, scoring 57 goals and 77 assists for 134 points. He saw action on the power play and a regular shift, giving opponents fits many times per night.

After a successful OHL career, he would spend the next five seasons with the University of New Brunswick. In his first season, he would make the USports (AUS) All-Rookie Team after contributing eight goals and 19 assists for 27 points in 30 games. In 2021/22, he would become a USports (AUS) champion, scoring two goals in four games. In his final season with the University of New Brunswick, he would win the Universiade Gold Medal, becoming a two-time USports (AUS) champion and become a USports (AUS) University Cup Champion for the first time. During his five years, he would score 30 goals and 83 assists for 113 points and was a +57.

Toledo is loading up at the forward position with the latest acquisition of Gilmour. He should play an important role down the stretch and could be a sneaky good addition that the Walleye can count on heavily as the playoff push gets longer. Gilmour uses his tremendous speed, vision, and offensive instincts to be at the top of his game every night. Definitely is a player to watch with the playoffs around the corner.
