RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jon Gillies.
Gillies immediately signed a three-year deal after garnering Most Outstanding Player honors en route to leading Providence College to the NCAA title. Although Calgary would seem to have a full cupboard of goalies in Joni Ortio, Karri Ramo and Jonas Hiller, none of those options have really proven to be the netminder that the Flames want to hinge their future on. If Gillies can play well right off the bat and grab a share of the starting spot in the AHL, it may not be long before Gillies pushes his way to the parent club.
Gillies will return to Providence College for his junior season, after posting a 2.16 GAA and .931 save percentage over 34 games for the Friars as a sophomore. The 20-year-old earned first-team All-American honors for his efforts, and the former third-round pick could ultimately be a long-term solution in the net for the Flames. He could decide to turn pro after Providence finishes their season, and if he continues to excel in the AHL, an appointment to the big club at some point in 2015-16 wouldn’t seem far-fetched.
