"I really enjoyed my time in the EHL," said Gill. "I absolutely love the parity within the league. All of the coaches are top-notch and have the same goal in mind, which is to help young men advance to the NCAA ranks."

Gill went on to share his appreciation towards the Lumberjacks organization.

"I would like to especially thank the Rosales family for the opportunity to return to such an amazing organization," added Gill. "Maurice and Louise care so strongly about their program, and show this with the countless resources that provide to the staff and players. I will truly miss working with them everyday, but also look forward to following both teams throughout the upcoming season."
