Hilbert was drafted by the Boston Bruins in the 2nd round (37th overall) in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft from the University of Michigan of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association.
In November 2005, Hilbert was traded by the Bruins to the Chicago Blackhawks for a 5th round selection in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. In the same season he was claimed off waivers by the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 9, 2006.
On July 4, 2006, Hilbert was signed as a free agent to a one-year contract. Hilbert produced a career high 28 points in his first full season in the NHL with the Islanders in 2006-07, and was subsequently rewarded with a two-year contract extension on July 3, 2007.
As a free agent, Hilbert was belatedly signed prior to the 2009-10 season to a one-year contract with the Minnesota Wild on October 1, 2009.
He returned to the Islanders organization the following year on August 18, 2010. However, due to injury was forced to retire.
