WAKEFIELD, Mass. -
The Hockey East Association named Providence College sophomore goaltender Jon Gillies (South Portland, Maine) the Goaltender of the Month on Wednesday, Oct. 30 for the month of October.
In four games against ranked opponents Minnesota State and Miami University, Gillies went 3-0-1 in October while posting a 1.71 goals against average and a .950 save percentage. He has helped lead the Friars to a 4-0-1 start to the season and the No. 3 national ranking.
Gillies opened the season with back-to-back wins over then 11th-ranked Minnesota State. In game two of the series, he posted his sixth-career shutout with a 3-0 win against the Mavericks (Oct. 12), stopping all 38 shots he faced. He is now one shy of the Providence College record for career shutouts, currently held by Tyler Sims ‘08.
Last weekend, Gillies went 1-0-1 against then third-ranked Miami, including a 33-save showing in Providence’s 3-2 overtime win (Oct. 25) and a 37-save performance in game two, a 4-4 overtime tie (Oct. 26).
It marks Gillies’ third career Hockey East Monthly award, having earned Rookie of the Month honors twice as a freshman.
Gillies and the Friars open Hockey East play this weekend with a home-and-home series versus Boston University. Game one will be played at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1 at Agganis Arena in Boston, Mass., while the series will conclude at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2 at Schneider Arena.
