Goalie Gillam gets goal for Big Red

Former Chilliwack Chief and current Cornell netminder Mitch Gillam scored a goal in his Tuesday night NCAA debut.

Former Chilliwack Chiefs stopper Mitch Gillam earned his first win for the Cornell men’s hockey team Tuesday, backstopping them to a 4-2 win over the Niagara Purple Eagles.

Gillam also made team history, becoming the first Cornell goaltender to score a goal. With nine seconds left, his team up a goal and Niagara’s goalie pulled for the extra attacker, Gillam came out of his cage and floated the puck the length of the ice into the unguarded Niagara net.

Gillam makes a habit of scoring at least one goal per season.

The Peterborough native netted one last year during a BCHL match between his Chiefs and the Surrey Eagles. Gillam is easing into NCAA hockey this season, playing backup to senior Cornell starter Andy Liles.
