WAKEFIELD, Mass. -
For the third consecutive week, men's hockey freshman goaltender Jon Gillies (South Portland, Maine) has earned a weekly Hockey East award. On Monday, the conference announced that Gillies was selected as the Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week.
Gillies, who has started six straight games to open the season, helped lead the Friars to their first weekend home sweep of Maine since Dec. 5 and 6, 1997 as Providence downed the Black Bears 3-2 on Friday night and then 3-0 on Saturday. In Saturday night's game, Gillies stopped all 26 shots he faced to earn his first career shutout. For the weekend, he posted a 1.00 goals against average and a .964 save percentage to go along with 53 saves.
Gillies, a product of the Indiana Ice of the USHL, was named the Hockey East Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week last week (10/22/12) and also earned Hockey East Co-Defensive Player of the Week honors (10/15/12). For the season, Gillies has posted a 1.72 GAA and a .938 save percentage.
Gillies and the Friars travel to Hockey East foe Vermont next weekend for a two-game series on Friday, Nov. 2 and Saturday, Nov. 3. Puck drop is scheduled at 7:05 for both games.
