Columbus Inks Gibbons To Two-Way Deal

News: Brian Gibbons signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Blue Jackets on Friday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons failed to take advantage of a second-half opportunity on the Sidney Crosby-Chris Kunitz line with the Penguins, squandering what might have been his best chance at attaining fantasy relevance for the remainder of his career. With Columbus, he'll have the opportunity to compete for an opening night roster spot, but probably won't be considered for a top-six role at any point in 2014-15. He will bring some speed and physicality to the fourth line, however.

Pens Reassign Gibbons

News: Brian Gibbons was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday.
Analysis: With the Penguins eliminated from the playoffs, Brian Gibbons will pick up a little extra playing time in the minors before calling it a season. He was able to produce 17 points in 41 regular-season contests, but failed to mesh with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz on the Pens' top line when given the opportunity to replace the injured Pascal Dupuis.

Pens' Gibbons Returns Sunday

News: Brian Gibbons went pointless Sunday in his first game action since April 19.
Analysis: The forward totaled 10:14 TOI, including nearly three minutes (2:59 TOI) on the penalty kill. He primarily played in a bottom-six role, but gave the Pens an injection of energy.

Pens' Gibbons Back Sunday

News: Brian Gibbons (shoulder) will play Sunday in Game 2 against the Rangers.
Analysis: The small forward will make his first appearance since scoring two goals in Game 2 against Columbus in Round 1. His speed will give Pittsburgh another option against New York.

Penguins' Gibbons Back In Lineup

News: Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) is set to return to action Sunday against the Rangers.
Analysis: Based on warmups, Brian Gibbons will work on the team's fourth line Sunday, with Marcel Goc and Craig Adams. As a result, Tanner Glass is a scratch from Sunday's lineup.

Penguins' Gibbons Set To Return Sunday

News: Based on warmups, it looks like Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) is in line to take the place of Tanner Glass on the the Penguins' fourth line Sunday against the Rangers, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Penguins' Gibbons Present For Morning Skate

News: Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) was present for the Penguins' Sunday morning skate, but did not take part in line rushes.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons, who last suited up on April 19, thus remains in the day-to-day category as the Penguins' second round playoff series against the Rangers progresses.

Pens' Gibbons Practices

News: Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) practiced with the team Wednesday.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons participated in the pregame warm-up before Monday's game against the Blue Jackets, but ended up not playing. He seems like a safe bet to suit up for Game 1 of the team's second-round series against either the Flyers or the Rangers, although nothing has been confirmed yet.

Pens' Gibbons At Game 6 Warm-Ups

News: Brian Gibbons (uundisclosed) was present for the pregame warm-ups, Pens Inside Scoop reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons hasn't suited up since getting hurt in Game 2, but it looks like he'll be back in action Monday. Gibbons posted two goals in the first two games of the Round 1 series, including one while shorthanded.

Pens' Gibbons (Undisclosed) Not At Morning Skate

News: GIbbons (undisclosed) was not present at Saturday's morning skate.
Analysis: After missing both Game 3 and Game 4, Brian Gibbons did not skate Saturday and his status is in doubt for Game 5. A further update regarding his status should surface prior to game time, but at this point it seems unlikely he'll be on the ice.

Pens' Gibbons Likely Out Wednesday

News: Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) was not present at the team's morning skate, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons missed Monday's game, and seems to have taken a step back in his recovery after skating over the weekend. It seems like a safe bet to rule him out of Wednesday's Game 4 at this point.

Pens' Gibbons Out For Game 3

News: Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) will miss Monday's Game 3 against the Blue Jackets, Tom Callahan of The Game 102.5 reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons wasn't at the team's morning skate Monday, and will have to watch Game 3 from the press box. The center played mostly a depth role for the Penguins this season, but did net two goals in the team's Game 2 loss Saturday.

Penguins' Gibbons Not At Morning Skate

News: Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) was not at the Penguins' Monday morning skate.

Pens Call Gibbons Day-To-Day

News: Coach Dan Bylsma said Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) is being considered day-to-day.
Analysis: Bylsma didn't provide much illumination on the status of Brian Gibbons, who was removed from Saturday's Game 2 in the second period with the undisclosed ailment. His two first-period goals but the Penguins in control of the game early, but the team ultimately surrendered the lead in the third period before losing in double overtime.

Penguins Gibbons Likely Suffers Injury

News: Brian Gibbons did not play in the second period of Saturday's Game 2 and did not return for the start of the third period, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons is presumably dealing with some sort of injury, as he scored two goals in the first five minutes of Saturday's game. If he doesn't return, he'll finish with a pair of marks and one hit in just 2:26 of ice time.

Gibbons Plays Well For Pens In Game 1

News: Brian Gibbons played well Wednesday and was promoted to Sidney Crosby's line with Chris Kunitz midway through Game 1.
Analysis: He failed to collect a point, but his speed set up a number of scoring opportunities. Brian Gibbons hit the post on one such chance. The winger isn't a great scorer, but his performance Wednesday could earn him more time alongside Crosby in Game 2.

Pens' Gibbons Gets Line Boost Wednesday

News: Brian Gibbons practiced Wednesday as the left winger to center Jussi Jokinen and James Neal, the Penguins' website reports.
Analysis: The diminutive forward has scored five goals and 15 points in 38 games, but has just two points (1G, 1A) in his last 10.

Pens' Gibbons Playing Thursday

News: Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) is playing in Thursday's game against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons was shaken up after blocking a shot during Tuesday's game, but he still took the ice Thursday night. With 12 points (four goals) in 27 games, he's bee surprisingly productive for a fourth-line player.

Pens' Gibbons Leaves With Injury

News: Brian Gibbons was removed from Tuesday's win over the Stars in the third period after he was shaken up while blocking a shot, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: The Penguins held a comfortable lead at the time of Brian Gibbons' injury, so even if it turns out that the injury was minor, he might not have gotten back into the game. He managed to contribute an assist in his 12:52 of ice time. The team figures to update his status after the game.

Pens' Gibbons Back In As Top Six Forward

News: The Penguins are expected to play Brian Gibbons on the team's No. 2 line with Evgeni Malkin and Jussi Jokinen while James Neal recovers from a concussion.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons, who recently missed time with a lower-body injury, has just one assist and one shot on goal in his last six games. For the season, the speedy little forward has four goals and 10 points in 24 contests.

Pens' Gibbons Back In Lineup Wednesday

News: Brian Gibbons (lower body) will be in the lineup Tuesday vs. the Capitals.
Analysis: Although Brian Gibbons draws back in after a two-game hiatus, his fantasy value has taken a massive hit now that the Penguins have settled on Lee Stempniak as their new right wing on the Sidney Crosby line. Taylor Pyatt and Brandon Sutter won't present Gibbons with nearly as many scoring opportunities as he enjoyed playing next to the likely Art Ross Trophy winner.

Pens' Gibbons Not At Warm-Ups

News: Brian Gibbons (lower body) did not participate in warm-ups before Monday's game against the Capitals, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons' absence from warm-ups pretty much rules him out of the game, so it would be wise to sit him if possible. He'll try to rest up and get ready for Tuesday's rematch with the Caps.

Penguins' Gibbons Questionable For Monday

News: Coach Dan Bylsma said that Brian Gibbons (lower body) could be available Monday against the Capitals, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Consider Brian Gibbons a game-time decision after he missed Friday's game with the lower-body injury. The Penguins plugged in new acquisition Lee Stempniak on the top line Friday while Gibbons was unavailable, and it may be hard for the rookie to earn that spot back in the games to come.

Pens' Gibbons Scratched Friday With Injury

News: Brian Gibbons was scratched Friday because of a lower-body injury.
Analysis: There were no specifics given as to what the injury was or how he sustained it, but it is obviously serious enough to hold him out of action. Expect the Penguins to update his condition over the weekend, but for now, consider him day-to-day.
