Michael Hails ‘mane’ man for Lions

Former Glacier Kings goalie is MVP as Lindenwood University wins conference championship

Former Comox Valley Glacier Kings goalie Michael Hails is enjoying a terrific freshman year at Lindenwood University. On Feb. 21-22, he led the Lions to the 2015 Central States Collegiate Hockey League Conference tournament championship.

Hails, who played for the G-Kings in 2012-13 and 2013-14, was named tourney MVP. The 20-year-old Coldstream, B.C. native finished the tournament 2-0-0 with a sparkling 1.37 GAA and .959 save percentage.

Lions’ assistant coach Mark Abney notes Hails stopped 31 of 32 shots in a 2-1 overtime win over #2 seed Robert Morris and 40 of 42 in a 3-2 win over #1 seed Ohio.

“Michael finished the regular season with a 9-2-0 record, 2.34 GAA and .930 save percentage. He also had a great start in the classroom, earning a perfect 4.0 grade point average.” Abney added.


Lindenwood University (in St. Charles, Missouri) now turns its attention to the American Collegiate Hockey Association Div. 1 national championships.
