Former record-setting Western Michigan goalie Riley Gill signed with the Kalamazoo Wings of the ECHL on Tuesday afternoon.
Gill will make his debut at K-Wings practice on Wednesday and could be eligible to play tonight after spending four years with the Broncos (2006-10).
The Northfield, Minn., native finished his WMU career with 39 wins in 111 appearances, third most amongst goalies in school history. In his four years, Gill recorded a WMU-record eight shutouts, a school record .915 save percentage and the second-best goals-against average in school history at 2.94.
Gill twice recorded 54 saves in a game, falling six short of Glenn Healy’s school record of 60 saves. The first game was on March 7, 2009 in a thrilling 4-3 double-overtime win against Lake Superior State. The second time Gill stopped 54 was earlier this season in WMU’s 4-1 win over Notre Dame on “Hockey Cares” night.
As a freshman, he posted a 13-8-1 record on his way to making the CCHA All-Rookie team.
Gill is on schedule to graduate in June with a degree in business.
