Hershey signs Riley Gill to AHL deal

Riley Gills signs AHL deal with Hershey

HERSHEY - Former Royals goaltender Riley Gill has signed with the team's AHL-affiliate, the Hershey Bears. Gill was instrumental in Reading's Kelly Cup championship last season, earning ECHL Playoff MVP honors.

Gill, 28, spent most of the 2012-13 season with the SPHL's Louisiana IceGators.  Despite joining the Bears' ECHL affiliate Reading Royals in February, Gill finished the season as the SPHL leader in shutouts (five) and tied for the league lead in victories (25).

The 6-1, 215-pound native of Northfield, Minnesota made an immediate impact in Reading.  In 14 appearances in the Royals net, Gill finished with a mark of 10-3-1 and three shutouts, and became the first Royals goaltender to earn Reebok Hockey ECHL Goaltender of the Week honors in back-to-back weeks.  He was also selected as the Warrior Hockey ECHL Goaltender of the Month of March.  

The Royals later captured the franchise's first Kelly Cup championship behind Gill, who went on to earn the ECHL Playoff MVP honor after posting a 13-3-1 playoff mark and four shutouts.
