Blue Jackets' Jon Gillies: Allows three in loss
Gillies allowed three goals on 12 shots coming in relief in the Blue Jackets' 8-1 loss to the Devils on Thursday.
After Michael Hutchinson got pulled early in the third period, Gillies did not fare much better, allowing three goals on just 12 shots, though at least he wasn't saddled with the loss. This was just Gilles' second appearance of the season, and he's allowed three goals in both games. He should continue to serve as the backup until Elvis Merzlikins returns.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Jon Gillies: Recalled from minors Wednesday
Gillies was called up from AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.
Gillies has played in just one game for the Jackets this season, in which he made 24 saves in a winning effort over the Senators, and will now switch places with Jet Greaves, who was sent down in a corresponding move. As long as Elvis Merzlikins (lower body) remains unavailable, the Jackets will likely continue to rotate their netminders to give everybody in the organization a look.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Jon Gillies: Earns win in season debut
Gillies stopped 24 of 27 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.
Gillies struggled early in his first outing of the season, allowing three goals in the first period, but he settled down and blanked Ottawa the rest of the way en route to a 4-3 overtime victory. The 29-year-old netminder went 3-10-2 last season with an .887 save percentage in 20 appearances between St. Louis and New Jersey. Gillies should continue to back up Michael Hutchinson while Elvis Merzlikins (lower body) is sidelined.... See More ... See Less

Blue Jackets' Jon Gillies: Joins big club

Blue Jackets' Jon Gillies: Traded to Columbus
Gillies was traded from Arizona to the Blue Jackets in exchange for Jakub Voracek and a 2023 sixth-round pick Thursday.
The Blue Jackets traded Joonas Korpisalo to the Kings on Wednesday, and although Jonathan Quick was included in the return, Columbus is expected to try and flip Quick to a contender prior to Friday's trade deadline, so the team was in need of organizational depth at goaltender, leading to Thursday's acquisition of Gillies. Gillies hasn't appeared in an NHL contest this season, and even if Quick ends up getting moved, Gillies will likely stick with AHL Cleveland for the remainder of the 2022-23 campaign.... See More ...

Coyotes' Jon Gillies: Waived by Coyotes
Gillies was waived by Arizona on Sunday, Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports reports.

Coyotes' Jon Gillies: Snags two-way deal
Gillies signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday.
Gillies bounced around the NHL, AHL and even the ECHL in 2021-22, but he spent most of his time with the Devils, going 3-10-0 while posting a sub-par 3.76 GAA and .885 save percentage through 19 appearances. The Coyotes may not be done adding netminders, but for now, Gillies will slot in as the team's No. 2 option in goal behind Karel Vejmelka.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jon Gillies: Six saves in relief
Gillies stopped all six shots he faced after replacing the ineffective Andrew Hammond in the third period of Thursday's 6-3 loss to Carolina.
The Devils outscored the Hurricanes 2-0 during Gillies' time in the game, but Carolina dominated 6-1 prior to that point. New Jersey has just one game left, so Gillies will likely finish the season with a 3-10-2 record, 3.70 GAA and .887 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jon Gillies: Tough OT loss to Canes
Gillies made 26 saves in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Hurricanes.
It was a bitter loss to take for Gillies, who carried a shutout into the final five minutes of the third period only for bad bounces and bad defensive play to hand the win to Carolina. The 28-year-old netminder was making his first start in over a month, but the performance was likely good enough to earn him more work over the Devils' final four games of the season despite his 3.82 GAA and .883 save percentage....

Devils' Jon Gillies: Facing Hurricanes
Gillies will start between the pipes in Saturday's home game versus Carolina, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Gillies hasn't started in goal since March 19 versus Edmonton, when he surrendered five goals on 39 shots en route to a 6-3 defeat. He'll try to pick up his fourth win of the year in a tough home matchup with a Hurricanes team that's 22-12-4 on the road this season.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jon Gillies: Appears in relief
Gillies made 17 saves in relief after taking the net against the Bruins at the 9:01 mark of the second period in Thursday's 8-1 loss. He allowed three goals.
The Devils were on their heels from the opening minute and never recovered, and starter Nico Daws was chased with the Bruins up 5-1. Daws had made five straight starts, so Gillies could be in line for a start very soon. The Devils play back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday against the Panthers and Islanders.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jon Gillies: Buried by Oilers
Gillies stopped 34 of 39 shots in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers.
Edmonton's final goal was scored into an empty net. The Devils actually took a 3-2 lead early in the third period, but Gillies was helpless against the Oilers' onslaught over the final 11 minutes of the game. He hasn't won a game in over a month, last picking up a victory Feb. 10 in St. Louis, and on the season the netminder is saddled with a 3.80 GAA and .884 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jon Gillies: Starting in Edmonton
Gillies will guard the road cage during Saturday's matchup with the Oilers, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Devils' Jon Gillies: Makes another relief appearance
Gillies stopped 19 of 20 shots in relief of Nico Daws in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Flames.
Gillies faced the team that selected him in the third round of the 2012 draft, and he fared pretty well over the final half of the contest. He's made relief appearances in the last two games, allowing three goals on 30 shots. Gillies remains at 3-9-1 with a 3.64 GAA and an .888 save percentage through 16 appearances, though it seems likely he'll start Saturday in Edmonton after Daws has struggled in the first two games of the Devils' road trip....

Devils' Jon Gillies: Yields two goals in relief outing
Gillies gave up two goals on 10 shots in relief of Nico Daws in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Canucks.
Gillies played just over half of the game after an unusually poor start from Daws. It wasn't exactly an encouraging relief outing for Gillies, who hadn't played since Feb. 25. The 28-year-old wasn't on the hook for the loss, but his GAA ticked up to 3.70 while his save percentage dipped to .885 in 15 appearances. The Devils haven't named a starter for Wednesday's game in Calgary yet.... See More ... See Less
