Gaudreau, Gillies pick up Hockey East honours
CALGARY, AB -- Two Calgary Flames prospects have picked up Hockey East weekly honours.
Johnny Gaudreau was named the Hockey East Warrior Player Of The Week for his efforts in the Northeast Regional in Worcester, MA. He had a record-tying six points (three goals, three assists) in a 6-2 win over Denver on Saturday and posted two assists in a 4-3 win over UMass Lowell on Sunday.
Gaudreau and Boston College now advance to the Frozen Four in Philadelphia, PA next month.
Jon Gillies was named the Hockey East Defensive Player Of The Week. In the East Regional in Bridgeport, he allowed only three goals in two games. In Providence's first game, he stopped all 37 shots in 4-0 shutout against Quinnipiac.
Providence College fell to Union on Saturday, ending their season. Gillies has a 19-9-5 record in his sophomore campaign with a 2.16 GAA and .931 save percentage.
