Gilmour played admirably last season in 28 games with the Rangers, showing his speed and defensive IQ to be worthy of earning a bridge deal. This will be Gilmour’s chance to show Rangers management that he can be a mainstay on the blue line for years to come.
John Gilmour's salary for this #NYR one-year deal is $650,000 in NHL and $100,000 in AHL. Accepting QO's were Nieves ($709,750), O'Gara ($874,125), Fogarty ($708,750) and Birgas ($832,500).
