Aaron Vickers2014 Draft Center

Jake Gilmour will have an opportunity to go head-to-head with his father.

According to the team’s website, the 2014 NHL Draft eligible has officially signed with the Niagara IceDogs, entering into an OHL Standard Player Agreement with the club.

Gilmour was traded to Niagara by his father in early August.

Dad Doug, the general manager of the Kingston Frontenacs and a Hockey Hall of Famer who is best remembered with the Toronto Maple Leafs, traded Jake before he had an opportunity to play in a single game for his father’s team.

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound winger and goaltender Blake Richard were sent to Niagara along with a conditional 12th-round pick in the OHL draft in exchange for a 12th-round pick in the 2015 OHL draft on August 8th.

Jake, 17, was originally drafted by his father in the eighth round of the 2012 OHL Priority Selection.
