4/23/15 Saginaw Spirit Announce First Signing of 2015 Offseason
The Saginaw Spirit announce that the team has reached terms on an OHL educational package with 2015 first round pick, center Brady Gilmour. Gilmour was chosen 6th overall in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection after posting 28 goals and 33 assists, in 36 games this past season with the Quinte Red Devils Minor Midget program. Next month, the Grafton, ON native will skate in the 2015 OHL Gold Cup, an event that features the top 160 Under-16 players in Ontario. He is one of four Spirit prospects that will compete in the event.
Gilmour will also be one of 30 plus players that are expected to attend this weekend’s Spirit Development Camp, with the scrimmages taking place at the Saginaw Bay Ice Arena. There will be two scrimmages in all with the first going on Saturday, April 25 from 4:00pm until 5:30pm, and the second skate taking place on Sunday, April 26th from 10:00am until 11:30am. There will be no charge for admission to either scrimmage games
The following is a scouting report on Gilmour provided by the OHL prior to the league’s 2015 Priority Selection.
“Brady is skilled, tenacious center that competes every game and has a high hockey IQ. He’s a very good skater and makes his team go offensively. Brady is more of a pass first player and is probably the top playmaker in this age group. Brady always seems to be in the right spot at the right time, whether it’s offensively or defensively. He has high-end skill level and sees the ice very well to create opportunities for himself and his linemates every shift. Also strong on the draws and good defensively.”
