Pensacola Ice Pilots
Michael Mole played a heck of a game for the Ice Pilots on Saturday November 18, 2006. The Blades had numerous scoring chances in the third and it almost seemed like the official were trying to let them tie the game up, especially given they had five power play ops in that period, including a brief 3-on-5 (C. Hemingway Pen (bench minor - too many men 74.2) 5:59, B. Henley Pen (cross-checking minor 59.2) 6:47) but Mole kept everything out of the net, backstopping the Pilots to a 2-1 victory.
The Pilots are a New York Islanders affiliate, but their goalies seem to be coming from everywhere else.
Mole was one of five hockey players with Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) ties that had their names called by executives from the NHL in a "mini draft" shich marked the end of the Bell Making the Cut reality show on CBC television.
A member of the CIS champion St. Francis Xavier University X-Men, Mole went third, to the Ottawa Senators. A 22-year-old native of Orleans, Ont., he enjoyed a spectacular rookie season in the CIS in 2003-04. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound goalie was named to the CIS all-rookie team, and was chosen University Cup tournament MVP as he led the X-Men to their first ever CIS title with two shutouts in three outings. In 12 conference games this season, he shows a 2.78 goals against average and a .915 save percentage.
