“Michael had a real Halloween treat with a 3-0 shutout in Nanaimo on Thursday, Oct. 31. He faced 36 shots, then started the game in Saanich on Nov. 1 where he faced 32 shots, allowing two goals,” the VIJHL website noted.
As of Nov. 8, Hails had three wins in five games played with a 3.20 GAA and .906 save percentage. That ranked him eighth in goalies with more than four games played.
