Jon Gillies turned aside 35 shots in a 4-2 preseason loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Monday.

Gillies didn't get a lot of help, but he managed to impress with his individual performance. He's projected to start the campaign in the AHL after missing most of the 2015-16 campaign with a hip injury. When he did play, he posted a 2.31 GAA and .920 save percentage in seven contests with the Stockton Heat.

Jon Gillies has been recovering well from hip surgery.

The netminder only played seven games in the AHL in this his first professional season before an MRI revealed the damage. He thinks he will be able to start skating at the beginning of March but his 2015-16 season is over. "I just do what I’m told," Gillies added. "Whatever the trainers tell me to do, what ever (Flames strength and conditioning coach) Ryan (Van Asten) tells me to do. I just do what I’m told. I’ll get on the ice when I’m told." Gillies was drafted in the middle of the third round in 2012 and the Flames hope he can be their goalie of the future.

Jon Gillies sustained a high hit on Wednesday and is being put through the concussion protocol as a result.

We wouldn't recommend speculating on how long Gillies will be out for, especially seeing as it's not clear if he has a concussion or there's just the possibility of him having sustained one. Gillies had a 2.01 GAA and .930 save percentage in 39 games with Providence College last season.

Jon Gillies was impressive in Friday's 3-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets prospects.

The Flames prospects are participating in the Young Stars Classic tournament in Penticton, B.C. and their young goaltender performed very well. "The one thing I noticed is the saves, he gets across quickly. It’s hard to beat him because of the size," said Stockton Heat head coach Ryan Huska, who’s guiding the Flames hopefuls. "That was really the first time I’ve seen him play live, and I thought he did a real good job. It’s a good first impression — and hopefully a sign of good things to come for him."

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."
