Playing careerEdit

Gill attended the Western Michigan University from 2006 to 2010 where he played NCAA Division I college hockey with the Western Michigan Broncos men's ice hockey team. He completed his four-years at Western Michigan University with a NCAA career 2.94 goals-against average and a .915 saves percentage.[1] and established team records for the most games played (111) and the best all-time save percentage in WMU history.[2]

Gill began his professional career in the ECHL by joining the Kalamazoo Wings near the end of the 2009–10 ECHL season. During the 2012–13 ECHL season, he was selected as the ECHL's playoff MVP in helping the Reading Royals claim their first Kelly Cup.

At the end of the 2012-2013, Riley Gill was selected as the Sher-Wood Goaltender of the Year. "Gill led the league in wins (25-tied) and shootout wins (four) and set a new SPHL record with five shutouts. His 2.43 goals against average ranked second, while his .918 save percentage was tied for third-best. Gill’s strong play helped Louisiana to a 20-point improvement from last season, as the IceGators finished tied with Fayetteville for most points (73)." [3]

On August 6, 2013, Gill was signed by Royals AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears, to a one-year contract.[4]
