Former Portage Terriers’ netminder Gavin McHale received a call-up by the Washington Capitals in Wednesday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets.
6 foot 7 McHale, was the emergency back-up after Capitals’ regular Braden Holtby was sidelined due to injury.
McHale is currently the goalie coach for the women’s U of M Bisons. Gavin recently suited up for the Terriers Alumni game last weekend, last donning the Terrier jersey in the 2007-08 season.
This was the second emergency call up for McHale, last February suiting up for the Colorado Avalanche in Winnipeg.
