A Bear At Heart

The Chilliwack Chiefs have announced that Mitch Gillam (5'11", 181), a 1992-born goalie has committed to the Big Red for 2013. Mitch recently completed his first year in the BCHL after having graduated from the Berkshire School, where he helped the Bears to playoffs in his two seasons.

The Peterborough (ON) native posted a 3.12 GAA and a 91.0 save percentage this season and was named to the BCHL Interior Conference 2nd-team, along with future teammate Reece Willcox, as well as to the All-Rookie team.

Mitch was ranked a "C" by NHL Central Scouting in October, 2010. Mitch's brother Josh played at Dartmouth from 2006-2010.

Welcome to Cornell, Mitch.
