Back In The Crease: Mitch Gillam

After 23 wins, A BCHL All-Star/All-Rookie Team selection, and a nod as Chiefs’ Co-MVP and R.O.Y, most guys would leave a year early to attend their dream school, Cornell University.

Not Mitch Gillam though.

He’s sticking around for another year. And that works just fine for those within the Chiefs organization, and their fans.

Granted, things will be a little bit different this season for the Peterborough, Ontario native. Like the team in front of him, it’s going to be a little harder to sneak up on the rest of the league. His signed intent to attend a program like Cornell, and an experience at the New York Islanders rookie camp means that people in the hockey world have paid attention, meaning the spotlight/bullseye is a little bigger this September then it was last.

My guess is it won’t phase him all that much. He was smiling all the way through the first day of training camp Monday at Prospera. He’ll still get off the bus this season in his Don Cherry jackets.

Goalies.

I spoke with Mitch after his first day at Chiefs camp.
