Rangers Sign Gibbons To One-Year Deal

News: Brian Gibbons signed a one-year contract with the Rangers on Wednesday.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons split his season roughly evenly between AHL Springfield and the Blue Jackets in 2014-15, playing in 26 games at the former and 25 at the latter. He likely wouldn't have seen as much frequent action with the Blue Jackets had the team not dealt with an array of injuries, so it could be tougher to him to break through the deep Rangers forward ranks.

Blue Jackets Send Gibbons To AHL

News: Brian Gibbons was sent back to Springfield of the AHL on Saturday.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons has bounced back and forth between Springfield and Columbus a few times this season, and he was most recently recalled at the end of February. The 26-year-old has registered three goals and six assists in 10 AHL games this season.

Jackets Recall Gibbons

News: Brian Gibbons was recalled from AHL Springfield on Friday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons was sent to Springfield in mid-February, but will return to the club following the placement of Matt Calvert (concussion) on injured reserve. Through 21 games with Columbus this season, the forward has five assists and a plus-2 rating in 14:09 of ice time.

Blue Jackets' Gibbons Clears Waivers

News: Brian Gibbons (knee) cleared waivers Tuesday and was reassigned to AHL Springfield.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons' knee injury is no longer an issue since he's been able to practice for the last week, but with no lineup spot available for him with the parent club, he'll have to bide his time at Springfield for now. The forward produced five points in 21 games with the NHL squad earlier this season.

Jackets Waive Gibbons

News: Brian Gibbons (knee) was placed on waivers on Monday, the Columbus Sun Times reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons has been recovering from a knee injury and has been out of action since the middle of December, but has been nearing a return to action. After less than one year with the club, he'll have to wait for a return to NHL action, but it's possible Columbus is just trying to send him to the AHL for a rehab stint when he returns.

Jackets' Gibbons Practices Wednesday

News: Brian Gibbons (knee) was a participant in Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons was deployed on the fourth line with Mark Letestu and Corey Tropp during the full session, his first since sustaining the knee injury in December. There's a chance that the Gibbons could be available for either or both of the Blue Jackets' games over the weekend, but the team could prefer to wait until next week to activate him in order to afford him more practice time.

Jackets' Gibbons (Knee) Close To Practicing

News: Brian Gibbons (knee) could return to practice this week, and hasn't been ruled out yet for weekend games against the Flyers and Islanders, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He's missed 21 games so far with the knee injury. Getting Brian Gibbons back would provide the Blue Jackets with some necessary depth up front, as at times in the last two weeks they've been forced to use a defenseman as a fourth line winger.

Blue Jackets' Gibbons Making Progress

News: Brian Gibbons (knee) recently skated on consecutive days for the first time in weeks, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It's a sign of progress for Brian Gibbons, who hasn't played in a game since mid-December. His return is likely still a couple of weeks away.

Jackets' Gibbons Skates, But Return Note Close

News: Brian Gibbons (knee) skated on his own after Tuesday's practice ended, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It amounts to a positive step for Brian Gibbons, but he's still not on the cusp of a return to action. He won't travel with the Blue Jackets on their upcoming four-game road trip that wraps up Jan. 9, putting his return on track for mid-January at the earliest.

Blue Jackets Place Gibbons On Injured Reserve

News: Brian Gibbons is expected to miss the next 2-to-3 weeks with a knee injury, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The nature of Brian Gibbons' setback is uncertain, but he will likely be sidelined until the new year. Alexander Wennberg was added to the roster to take Gibbons' place.

Jackets' Gibbons Under Evaluation For Injury

News: Brian Gibbons is dealing with an upper-body injury and will be evaluated Friday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons supplied an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's overtime loss to the Capitals, but suffered the injury at some point during the contest and was limited to just 9:05 of ice time. The Blue Jackets should have a better idea of his condition after the evaluation, so he'll remain questionable for Saturday's game versus the Blackhawks until the team provides more information.

Jackets' Gibbons Has Two-Point Night

News: Brian Gibbons picked up two assists in his debut for the Blue Jackets on Saturday.
Analysis: After starting the season with five points in seven games for AHL Springfield, Brian Gibbons looks determined to take full advantage of his promotion and stick around for the long haul. Given the Jackets' absurd injury situation, he'll have at least a couple of weeks to prove he belongs on the NHL roster.

Brian Gibbons

Blue Jackets Recall Gibbons

News: The Blue Jackets recalled Brian Gibbons from AHL Springfield on Thursday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Injuries have hit the Blue Jackets hard of late, so Brian Gibbons was brought in to provide some depth up front. He and Sean Collins will likely rotate at one of the wing spots on the Blue Jackets' fourth line.

Blue Jackets' Gibbons Clears Waivers

News: Brian Gibbons was assigned to AHL Springfield after clearing waivers Wednesday.
Analysis: The 26-year-old Brian Gibbons was placed on injured reserve to open the season after sustaining a lower-body injury in training camp. The injury cost him any chance he had at winning a 23-man roster spot with Columbus, so he'll probably have to excel in the minors before warranting another look from the parent club.

Blue Jackets Place Gibbons On Waivers

News: The Blue Jackets activated Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) from injured reserve Tuesday and placed him on waivers, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons saw action in 41 games with the Penguins last season, so he could garner some interest on the waiver wire. If he clears, he will be assigned to AHL Springfield.

Jackets Place Gibbons On IR

News: The Blue Jackets placed Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) on IR on Monday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Gibbons sat out last Friday's practice with the injury, so the move to IR likely means he'll be out for Thursday's season opener against the Sabres. The center collected five goals and 12 assists last season with the Penguins.

Blue Jackets' Gibbons Resting Minor Injury

News: Brian Gibbons was held out of Friday's practice with a minor injury.
Analysis: Coach Todd Richards said the forward is "a little banged up" and is considered day-to-day, but there's a chance he could practice Saturday. The injury to Boone Jenner and the ongoing contract dispute with Ryan Johansen seems to have solidified Brian Gibbons' spot on the 23-man roster.

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.
Analysis: Assuming that's the case, Brian Gibbons would be making his first appearance for the Penguins since April 19, when he notched a pair of goals against Columbus.

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.
