From: Dromana/St Kilda, Selection #99, 1992 National Draft
Number: 22 (1994-1996)
Games: 43 (49 total)
Goals: 23 (29 total)
Played more than 50 reserve games with St. Kilda and the Demons and spent the entire 1993 season in the Melbourne seconds. After an off-season fitness campaign where he lost eight kilograms, Hilton broke into the senior side in 1994. Despite showing glimpses of brilliance he could never cement a permanent place in the Melbourne lineup and left at the end of 1996.
Hilton later claimed that he had sought a release from the last year of his contract to join Footscray during the trade period, and that a swap had been arranged for Bulldog Darryl Griffin before Footscray's board overruled their football department and vetoed the trade. Hilton was then delisted by the Demons.
