Thunder sign all-star goalie Mitch Gillam

Posted: Updated:

The Wichita Thunder signed goalie Mitch Gillam on Tuesday.

Gillam, 26, has spent the past two seasons playing with the Worcester Railers. He was named to the ECHL All-Star game in 2019. Gillam had a .906 save percentage in 2018-2019.

"One of my focuses when I took this job over was to solidify the goaltending position," said Thunder coach Bruce Ramsay in a statement. "When you have an affiliation and you get a goaltender from them, you always have to be prepared for that goalie to get called up. Injuries happen in the system and we wanted to get an elite goaltender at this level. Mitch had an outstanding career in junior and college. He's been an elite goalie so far as a pro and we're really excited to have him in the fold."
