Jon Gillies made 27 saves to earn his first career win over Los Angeles on Thursday.

Very nice debut for the 23-year-old who is only starting because Chad Johnson is injured. Gillies' favorite goalie growing up was Jonathan Quick so it was a nice touch that Quick was watching his first win at the Staples Centre. The points still matter for the Flames too who are in the first wild card spot currently with Nashville contending as well as the season goes into the last games.

It's believed that Jon Gillies will start in one of the Flames' last two regular season games.

That would serve as Gillies' NHL debut. The Flames have already secured their playoff spot, but every point is still important to them as they're battling with the Nashville Predators over which team gets the first Wild Card seed. That being said, giving Gillies a start would also serve to give Brian Elliott one last breather before the playoffs start.

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.
