Jon Gillies has succeeded John Gibson as Team USA's starting goaltender in the World Junior Championship.

Gillies served as Gibson's understudy for the United States' gold medal run last year. "We saw a goaltending clinic last year from John Gibson, which was a treat to watch. He was an unbelievable mentor," Gillies said. "Gibby is the reason we won the tournament, hands-down. We had Johnny G. (Flames prospect Johnny Gaudreau) and other guys step up when we needed it, but Gibby is the reason we won and it shows what goaltending means to this tournament." Gillies turned aside 23 of 24 shots in Team USA's 5-1 win over the Czech Republic in his tournament opener.

Jon Gillies performed well during USA Hockey's evaluation camp at Lake Placid, N.Y., and he probably placed himself in prime position to be the starter for the United States at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Gillies turned aside 19 of 22 shots in a 4-0 loss to Sweden and he was excellent in a 5-1 win over Canada during his exhibition starts. Calgary assistant GM John Weisbrod was pleased with the good reports he received from the young netminder's play. "From what I heard, he stood on his head and was just outstanding," he said. "We're thrilled about that. We've known since we drafted him that Jon's physical abilities are immense. Sky's the limit. He could be a top, top caliber NHL starter. We've really encouraged him about how important these camps are and to seize the moment; become THE guy for the U.S.A. program. It sounds like he took some very large steps in accomplishing that."

Calgary Flames prospect Jon Gillies has earned plenty of accolades already this season with Providence College.

He has been named Hockey East's rookie of the week and defensive player of the week two times apiece. He was also earned the conference's rookie of the month honor for October. "Usually with freshmen, you see ups and downs," said coach Nate Leaman. "But Jon's been the most consistent player on our team overall. It's real impressive what he's done to this point." Gillies has posted a 1.95 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage in 15 games this campaign. His successful college start earned him a spot on Team USA's selection camp for the World Junior Championship, where he will compete for the number one job with OHL goalies John Gibson and Garret Sparks. The Flames chose Gillies with the 75th overall pick of the 2012 draft.
