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.

Gibbons Set With Crosby - For Now

News: Brian Gibbons will likely continue to play right wing on Pittsburgh's top unit with Chris Kunitz and Sidney Crosby -- at least until the trade deadline.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons scored goals in two of the team's final three games prior to the Olympics break. He has the speed to keep up with Crosby and Kunitz, but it would be surprising if the Pens didn't seek to upgrade over Gibbons before the deadline.

Brian Gibbons

Pens' Gibbons Recalled

News: The Pens recalled Brian Gibbons on Monday, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: His demotion prior to the Olympic break was the result of the team wanting him to continue playing in games. With an opportunity to at least temporarily replace Pascal Dupuis on the top line, Brian Gibbons might offer short-term value.

Brian Gibbons, C, PIT

Brian Gibbons

Pens Reassign Gibbons

News: Brian Gibbons was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: The Penguins want Brian Gibbons to continue to play regularly in the minors while NHL play is suspended due to the Olympic break. While the Penguins will probably look for an upgrade at forward in the coming weeks, Gibbons has held his own on the Sidney Crosby line recently, delivering goals in two of his last three games.

Brian Gibbons

Gibbons Powers Pens On Monday

News: Brian Gibbons potted the first power-play goal of his career Monday against the Senators.
Analysis: He took advantage of a bit of time on the team's second unit, deflecting an Olli Maatta slapper from the point. Brian Gibbons continues to skate with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz at even strength, but the team will likely make changes after the Olympics and before the trade deadline. Gibbons makes for a decent play until then. He's totaled three goals and eight points in 17 contests with Pittsburgh this year.

Gibbons Assists In Pens' Win Monday

News: Brian Gibbons assisted on a goal while playing with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz on Monday.
Analysis: His return after a five-game absence went well. He totaled 11:48 TOI -- all at even strength. The Pens will likely upgrade Crosby's right winger before the deadline, but the speedy little Brian Gibbons could help fantasy squads in the meantime.

Brian Gibbons

Pens' Gibbons Expected To Return Monday

News: Brian Gibbons (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup Monday vs. the Sabres, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons had been activated from injured reserve Saturday but didn't end up suiting up in that night's game vs. the Stars. He skated on the top line with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz at morning skate and could attain some decent fantasy value right away playing alongside those kinds of talents.

Pens' Gibbons Skates

News: Brian Gibbons (lower body) skated on his own Wednesday morning, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons is eligible to be activated off IR whenever he's ready now, but he'll probably need to get a few practices in before that happens. He was pretty effective when healthy, racking up two goals and four assists in 13 games.

Brian Gibbons

Penguins Place Gibbons On IR

News: Brian Gibbons (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: The Penguins are regarding Brian Gibbons' injury as a week-to-week concern, with his placement on injured reserve suggesting he's going to miss multiple games. Nicholas Drazenovic was recalled from the minors earlier in the day to take Gibbons' spot on the active roster.

Penguins' Gibbons Considered Week-To-Week

News: Brian Gibbons is week-to-week with a lower-body injury, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: The injury comes at a disappointing time for fantasy owners, as Brian Gibbons had just been appointed to Sidney Crosby's line to fill in for Pascal Dupuis (knee). Gibbons' injury will force the injury-plagued Penguins to reshuffle their lines once again, with the player who is chosen to replace Gibbons as the first-line right winger set to receive a nice boost in value.

Pens' Gibbons Leaves Game Saturday

News: Brian Gibbons left Saturday's game in the first period with an undisclosed injury and hasn't returned through two periods of play.
Analysis: A mix of Tanner Glass, Brandon Sutter and Evgeni Malkin have spent time on the top line in Brian Gibbons's absence. Gibbons has four points in his last four games, serving as Sidney Crosby's right winger in the last three.

Pens' Gibbons Scores Tuesday

News: Brian Gibbons served as Sidney Crosby's right winger for the second consecutive game Tuesday, scoring his second goal and fifth point in 11 games.
Analysis: Barring a downgrade in play, Brian Gibbons figures to skate alongside Crosby for the immediate future. His goal Tuesday was all about speed and had little to do with Crosby. He makes for a decent waiver-wire pickup.

Gibbons Helps Pens To Friday Win

News: Brian Gibbons added two assists and finished plus-2 against the Rangers on Friday.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons served as Pittsburgh's second-line left winger with Brandon Sutter and Jussi Jokinen on Friday. He has good speed and playmaking ability but will resume a lesser role whenever Evgeni Malkin returns. Gibbons now has a goal and three assists in nine games for the Pens.

Pens Recall Gibbons

News: Brian Gibbons was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: With Jayson Megna likely out until Wednesday with an injury and Evgeni Malkin also ailing, Brian Gibbons will join the Penguins to provide reinforcement at forward. He had two points in five games with the parent club earlier this season.

Penguins' Gibbons Sent To AHL

News: Brian Gibbons was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton by the Pens on Tuesday.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons has a goal and an assist in five games with the Penguins this season. He has put up tremendous numbers in the AHL, totaling 22 points in 15 games, and he'll go back to work there until the Penguins need another body at forward down the road.

Pens' Gibbons Quiet Wednesday

News: Brian Gibbons was held pointless Wednesday after a two-point debut Monday against Anaheim.
Analysis: He totaled 9:42 of ice time and registered two shots. No other Penguin player saw less action than Brian Gibbons, who was limited to 15 shifts.

Gibbons Has Sweet Start With Pens Monday

News: Brian Gibbons scored one goal and assisted on another in a successful NHL debut against Anaheim on Monday.
Analysis: All he needed was a fight for the Gordie Howe Hat Trick. The speedy, little Brian Gibbons skated on the third line, totaling 14 shifts and 10:11 of ice time. He's not a top prospect by any means, but there's no denying he's off to a red-hot start.
