Cornell Freshman Goalie Mitch Gillam Makes NCAA Debut, Scores Goal (Video)

Mitch Gillam Cornell Debut

Mitch Gillam, freshman goalie with the Cornell hockey team, made a pretty incredible debut during last night’s game against Niagara. Despite his position on the other end of the ice, he scored an empty-net goal on the opposing team, becoming only the third NCAA Division I goalie to successfully score a goal on his own shot.

It was an incredible play for Gillam, doubly so since the game was his first time starting for Cornell.
