Whether with Ohio State or with Utica, Madill was a gifted goal scorer. While with the U-Devs, he would score 40+
He did get to show some of that ability while he played for a short time in New Jersey, and immediately upon arrival,
too, scoring a goal in his first NHL game.
My favorite memory of him involved a penalty, though... Not taking one, even though he was prone to spending a lot of
time in the box. He drew one in one game, and Gary Thorne had mentioned that Madill's father used to be a referee, so
that he probably knew a thing or two about acting to draw penalties. "So is it a 10?" So they showed the replay... "It IS
a 10!" lol
Because of the Devils' depth at forward, he was left unprotected for the expansion draft. The Sharks would claim him,
but would spend that season with the Kansas City Blades of the IHL. He would continue moving around the I for the
rest of his career, which ended in 1997 after playing a few games with the Phoenix Roadrunners. He never played
another NHL game.
He would try a comeback in 04-05 with the KC Outlaws in the United Hockey League. He only played one game with
them, but got 21 PIMs in that game.
