With the 75th pick, Calgary chose Jon Gillies of the USHL Indiana Ice. He’s a goalie with a .915 SV% in in 53 games last year. He was the 4th ranked NA goaltender in central scoutings mid-term rankings. Like Jankowski, Gillies has committed to play with Providence College in the NCAA next year.
Im not thrilled with a goalie in the top three rounds, but as always willing to take a wait and see approach. Reel scouting notes he’s a big kid (6’4") and is currently a good "first shot" stopper but has issues recovering and stopping rebounds due to sluggish foot work.
