Ducks' Gibson, Andersen To Battle For No. 1 Duties

News: John Gibson will battle Frederik Andersen for duties as the Ducks' No. 1 netminder in training camp, NHL.com's Curtis Zupke reports.
Analysis: While Andersen, a fellow second-year goalie, probably has the advantage heading into camp since he played well in a larger sample of games than John Gibson, the 21-year-old certainly proved his mettle for the Ducks in the postseason. Thrust into action for the final four games of the team's second-round series with the Kings, Gibson saved 102 of 111 shots (.919 save%) and turned in a shutout in Game 4, convincing the Ducks to let veteran Jonas Hiller walk in free agency. With an outstanding showing in camp, Gibson could very well beat out Andersen, but there's an equally real possibility he could start the season in the minors. Both young goalies are best off playing regularly somewhere while they're still developing, so it wouldn't be surprise if veteran Jason LaBarbera ended up opening the campaign as the backup to the victor of the starting competition.

Gibson Allows Four As Ducks Come Up Short

News: John Gibson allowed four goals before being pulled 2:02 into the second period of a 6-2 defeat at the hands of the Kings in Game 7 on Friday.
Analysis: Though it's always hard to see a season end, John Gibson had an impressive (while short) season this year. He went 5-2 in his three regular season and 4 postseason starts, and had a combined save percentage of .936 during that time. After playing that well in only his first seven NHL games ever, the Ducks have feel confident about the future of their young goaltender going forward.

Ducks' Gibson In Net For Game 7

News: John Gibson will start between the pipes on Friday, Helene Elliot of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: John Gibson had a solid performance in Game 6, allowing two goals on 23 shots. He will lead the team in net for the series finale.

Ducks' Gibson Solid In Game 6 Defeat

News: John Gibson stopped 21 of 23 shots, but didn't get enough offensive support during a 2-1 loss to the Kings in Wednesday's Game 6.
Analysis: After John Gibson went 3-0 in three regular-season starts before winning his previous two postseason contests, Wednesday's defeat marks the first loss of the rookie's NHL career. The 20-year-old's numbers were solid, but he allowed a preventable goal to Trevor Lewis that trickled through his pads in the second period for the deciding tally. In spite of the slip-up, Gibson's otherwise flawless postseason probably has him on track to get the nod over Jonas Hiller for Friday's Game 7.

Ducks' Gibson Stops 39 In Win

News: John Gibson made 39 saves on 42 shots in a win over the Kings in Monday's Game 6.
Analysis: John Gibson didn't post a shutout like he did in his playoff debut, but he had another very good game, and he got another win. Now the Ducks are one win away from eliminating the Kings.

Ducks Tap Gibson For Game 5

News: John Gibson will be in the crease for Monday's Game 5 against the Kings, Curtis Zupke of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Bruce Boudreau will unsurprisingly stick with John Gibson for the second consecutive outing, after the rookie goaltender helped the Ducks even the series with a 28-save shutout Saturday. If he turns in another quality outing Monday, he'd likely remain the Ducks' starter for the rest of the series, earning the nod over the more battle-tested Jonas Hiller.

Ducks Gibson Posts Game 4 Shutout in Playoff Debut

News: John Gibson turned in a 28-save shutout in his NHL playoff debut Saturday as the Ducks evened the Western Conference semifinals with a 2-0 win against the Kings in Game 4.
Analysis: John Gibson, 20, was called upon because Jonas Hiller was benched after losing the first two games of the series and Frederik Andersen suffered a right leg injury in Game 3. Gibson is widely considered the best goaltending prospect in hockey.

Ducks' Gibson Starting Game 4

News: John Gibson will start Saturday's Game 4 against the Kings, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: With Frederik Andersen (lower body) sidelined and Jonas Hiller out of favor, the 20-year-old John Gibson will get his first career playoff start. He looked good in limited regular-season action, winning all three of his starts while stopping 83-of-87 shots (.954 save percentage).

Ducks Recall Gibson In Wake Of Andersen Injury

News: John Gibson has been called up from Norfolk of the AHL, according to ESPN's Pierre LeBrun.
Analysis: John Gibson is very unlikely to play in the Ducks-Kings series, but with Frederik Andersen suffering a lower-body injury during Thursday's Game 3 win, he'll be with the Ducks in case he's needed to back up Jonas Hiller for Saturday's Game 4 and/or beyond.

Ducks Send Gibson Back To Minors

News: John Gibson was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Sunday.
Analysis: The Ducks have made rookie Frederik Andersen their top goalie for the postseason, with the experienced Jonas Hiller on hand as his backup. It would be risky for coach Bruce Boudreau to go with two rookie goalies in the postseason, so John Gibson will remain in Norfolk for further seasoning.

Ducks' Gibson Wins Third Straight

News: John Gibson picked up his third victory in as many NHL starts Sunday, turning aside 29 of 31 shots in a 3-2 OT win over the visiting Avs.
Analysis: Since the Ducks were comfortable with their playoff positioning, they gave John Gibson the nod in three of their last four games. Not only did the 20-year-old emerge victorious in all three, but he posted a sparkling .964 save percentage and 1.00 GAA along the way. Unless both Jonas Hiller and Freddy Andersen fall apart in the playoffs, Gibson will be a long shot for any further playing time this year, but he flashed some serious upside in his short three-game stint in Orange County.

Ducks Go With Gibson

News: John Gibson is slated to start Sunday's game against the Avs, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: John Gibson, who stopped 36 of 38 shots in a 5-2 win over the Sharks on Wednesday, is thus slated to make his third career NHL start in Sunday's season finale.

Ducks' Gibson Stays Perfect For Career

News: John Gibson stopped 36 of 38 shots on goal during a 5-2 win over the Sharks on Wednesday.
Analysis: While it is unlikely that John Gibson will see much ice time behind Hiller and Andersen, the fact that the Ducks gave him his second straight start shows that the team can envision a future for him. With a record of 2-0 and a save percentage of 0.964, Gibson could have a promising NHL career ahead of him.

Ducks' Gibson Starting Wednesday

News: John Gibson will start in net Wednesday against the Sharks, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: With Jonas Hiller struggling lately, head coach Bruce Boudreau will give John Gibson the reins for the second straight game. The rookie is fresh off a shutout of the Canucks in his first ever NHL start Sunday.

Ducks' Gibson To Make First NHL Start

News: John Gibson will start in goal Monday night against Vancouver. It'll be his NHL debut.
Analysis: Jonas Hiller's lost three straight, while Frederik Andersen is dealing with an upper-body injury, so John Gibson will get to make his first NHL start. The 2011 second-rounder's had a fine season for AHL Norfolk, delivering a .919 save percentage and 2.34 GAA.

Ducks' Gibson Gets Shutout In NHL Debut

News: John Gibson stopped all 18 shots on goal in his first NHL start Monday against the Canucks, taking home a 3-0 victory.
Analysis: While he wasn't tested much in this one and may not get much playing time behind Jonas Hiller and Frederik Andersen (once Andersen's healthy), you can't ask much more of a goalie than a shutout in his first NHL appearance.

Ducks Recall Gibson

News: John Gibson was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Sunday, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: With Frederik Andersen not expected to practice first until Tuesday as he deals with an upper-body injury, John Gibson will be on hand to serve as Jonas Hiller's understudy. There's a chance Gibson could get a start Monday against Vancouver, with Hiller already confirmed to start the first game of the back-to-back Sunday vs. Edmonton.

Gibson Sent To AHL By Ducks

News: The Ducks have assigned John Gibson to AHL Norfolk, the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The promising 20-year-old goalie, who did not appear in an NHL game with the Ducks following his Jan. 10 recall, heads back down to Norfolk, where he'll continue his development process at the AHL level.

Ducks Recall Gibson

News: John Gibson was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Friday, Ren Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: With the Ducks wanting to give Frederik Andersen some more time at AHL Norfolk, John Gibson will join the big club, likely on a short-term basis. No. 1 goalie Jonas Hiller is playing his best hockey of the season and is unlikely to surrender the goal to anyone in the near future, outside of back-to-back scenarios.

Ducks Prospect Gibson Brings Home Bronze

News: John Gibson led Team USA to the bronze medal at the recent World Hockey Championships. He finished the tournament 3-1-1 with a 1.56 goals-against average and .951 save percentage.
Analysis: He took over for the Bolts' Ben Bishop, who had a sketchy tourney, and absolutely shined. He made big saves and then played with ice water in his veins in the bronze medal match, shutting down the Finns in a shootout. His future is very bright.

Ducks' Gibson Recalled Saturday

News: John Gibson was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Saturday, the Ducks' official website reports.
Analysis: John Gibson and seven other players were called up for Saturday's regular season finale. He spent most of the 2012-13 season with OHL Kitchener and played in just one AHL game.
