Facing Off with Hal Gill

The Friar Blog caught up with Friars’ alum and Montreal Canadiens backliner Hal Gill after a morning skate yesterday. Hal came to Providence College as a lightly recruited hockey player from Nashoba Regional High School in Bolton, Mass. Back in the early ’90s, a 6-foot-7 defenseman was a rarity. Even though he drew Division I school’s attention as a football player — he quarterbacked his high school team, too — winding up as a blocking tight end even at a big time football school wasn’t his idea of a great college athletic experience. So, he became a Friar and played four years at Providence before turning pro in 1997. More than 1,000 NHL games and a Stanley Cup Championship later, he’s now an assistant captain for one of the most storied franchises in professional sports, the Montreal Canadiens. We asked him about his experience in Montreal as well as his family life. Check it out.
