Gilmartin consistently works hard for the puck and focuses on the small things that are actually very impactful, like stick lifting opponents, using great body positioning, applying relentless pressure, and never giving up on a play. Gilmartin is very effective on the transition, being able to use his strong skating stride to generate good speed to create controlled offensive zone entries by himself, or also being effective at dumping and using a hard forecheck to win the race for the puck. In the offensive zone, he is most effective in front and behind the net. Using his body to screen the goalie while also looking to tip pucks in with his good hand-eye coordination. He uses his edges to constantly find open space and get to it quickly, to open up passing options. He’s able to find his teammates from behind the net, setting up good scoring chances in the slot. In the defensive zone, he’s able to use his strong defensive positioning and stick placement to poke pucks loose, making him tough to play against. He brings good energy and physicality to his game, understanding when it’s appropriate to finish checks or not. He plays a responsible defensive game, bringing physicality each shift and understanding where he needs to be very consistently. Gilmartin has a strong, long stride that generates good power and speed. He’s hard to stop when he’s moving at top speed and plays with good pace. He has great puck control and protection, able to carry the puck through the neutral zone and into the offensive zone efficiently. Gilmartin is also very strong along the boards, handling the puck with ease and being able to stay calm and find the smart play. In the offensive zone, he is consistently looking for open space and soft spots to create options for his teammates. In the defensive zone, he is able to stay in great position, taking time and space away from opponents quickly, while actively using his stick to block passing lanes, trying to knock pucks away, and intercept passes. He competes hard for the puck and applies great pressure on the puck carrier, using his intensity to out-battle and outwork opponents consistently. Moving forward, he will need to manage his passes better and focus on the smart, efficient play, rather than the skilled play.
