Ducks' Gibson Dealing With Stomach Illness

News: John Gibson was forced to exit Saturday's game with AHL Norfolk early due to the stomach flu, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Fortunately, it doesn't sound like John Gibson will become the fifth player from the Ducks to succumb to the mumps. He's expected to resume primary duties in goal for Norfolk within the next few days, but with Ilya Bryzgalov now in the fold as the backup goalie with the big club, a promotion won't be imminent for Gibson.

Ducks Activate Gibson, Send Him To AHL

News: John Gibson (groin) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday and reassigned to AHL Norfolk.
Analysis: John Gibson has steadily made his way back from a groin injury that has caused him to miss more than a month, and is finally ready to return. With the signing of Ilya Bryzgolov, he is expected to play most of the season at AHL Norfolk, where Gibson will receive regular playing time.

Ducks' Gibson Takes The Ice Tuesday

News: John Gibson took part in an on-ice workout Tuesday, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Analysis: It appears safe to say at this time that John Gibson will miss beyond the six weeks that the Ducks anticipated after diagnosing him with the groin injury back on Nov. 4, but a return before the end of December is still in sight for the young goalie. However, with the Ducks inking Ilya Bryzgalov to a one-year deal that carries a larger cap hit than any of the team's goalies, it looks like Gibson could be relegated to the minors for the bulk of what's left of the season once he returns to full health.

Ducks' Gibson Avoids Groin Tear

News: John Gibson has been diagnosed with a groin injury, but has avoided any kind of tear, Curtis Zupke of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The Ducks are still projecting John Gibson to miss the full six-week timetable they outlined for his recovery Tuesday. Because of the conditioning work Gibson will probably need to do once he's cleared to resume practicing, his absence could stretch an additional week or two before we see him back in the net for the NHL team.

Ducks' Gibson Out Six Weeks With Groin Injury

News: John Gibson has been diagnosed with a groin injury and will miss approximately six weeks. The Ducks placed him on injured reserve and recalled Igor Bobkov from AHL Norfolk.
Analysis: Just as he was beginning to claw his way back into a timeshare in goal with Frederik Andersen, John Gibson succumbed to the injury in pregame warmups Sunday, and will now be forced out for an extended period of time. The Ducks view the 21-year-old Gibson as their long-term option in goal, but the injury setback might prevent him from making a significant impact for the team in 2014-15. Aside from a bumpy season opener against the Penguins, Gibson had been stellar over four appearances for the Ducks, going 2-2 with a 2.28 GAA and .927 save percentage. His injury figures to give more job security to Andersen, who will need to overcome a minor leg injury of his own before reclaiming the net for Anaheim.

Ducks Scratch Gibson Due To Injury

News: John Gibson was scratched from Sunday's start against the Avalanche due to a lower-body injury sustained during pregame warmups, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The Ducks have had an unusual amount of turmoil in goal Sunday. It first appeared that Frederik Andersen was on track to take the ice against the Avalanche, but a bout with leg tightness made him unavailable. Now, it's John Gibson who has fallen victim to injury in untimely fashion, forcing the Ducks to turn the net over to the newly-recalled Jason LaBarbera, with emergency call-up Dwayne Roloson serving as his backup. It's possible that both Andersen and Gibson were scratched for precautionary purposes, but more concrete information regarding the extent of the injuries suffered by Anaheim's top two goalies isn't likely to be known until the team resumes practicing Monday.

Ducks' Gibson No Longer Starting

News: Contrary to earlier reports, John Gibson will not start Sunday's game against the Avalanche.
Analysis: Following Sunday's morning skate, coach Bruce Boudreau announced that John Gibson would make the start Sunday in goal. However, just minutes before game time, the Ducks announced recently recalled Jason LaBarbera would make the start instead, while Dwayne Roloson serves as the backup.

Ducks' Gibson Will Start Sunday

News: John Gibson will make the start in goal Sunday for the Ducks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: After the morning skate, coach Bruce Boudreau "casually slipped in" that John Gibson will make the start in what amounted to a surprising announcement. Boudreau's usage of his goalies has been somewhat random of late, as Andersen has given way to Gibson for four of the last six games, despite appearing to have locked down the role after winning his first six starts to begin the season. Whether it's Gibson or Andersen in the net on a particular night, either would represent an excellent fantasy option given the wealth of talent in front of them on defense and at forward.

Gibson Strong For Ducks In Losing Effort

News: John Gibson stopped 27 of 29 shots in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Blues.
Analysis: He was simply outdueled by fellow young netminder Jake Allen, who stopped all 24 on his own end. John Gibson's started three of the Ducks' last four games -- allowing just three goals in that span -- but Frederik Andersen is sure to be back in the net Friday against Dallas. Despite his 6-0 start to the year, it seems like Andersen's performance Friday could go a long way toward determining how the starts get broken out in Anaheim.

Ducks Sticking With Gibson On Thursday

News: John Gibson will be in goal Thursday against the Blues, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Though Frederik Andersen has been spectacular as the Ducks' nominal No. 1 goalie this season, coach Bruce Boudreau remains committed to playing John Gibson at least semi-regularly in order to give the 21-year-old some meaningful development time. As such, Gibson will start for the third time in four games on the heels of his shutout of the Blackhawks on Tuesday. Andersen probably would have received Thursday's start if it wasn't the front end of a back-to-back, so he'll more than likely start Friday in Dallas and while continuing to maintain the larger portion of the timeshare. In any event, no matter if it's Andersen or Gibson in the crease for the Ducks on a given night, either netminder should represent an ideal fantasy option.

Ducks' Gibson Spins 38-Save Shutout

News: John Gibson got just one goal of offensive support Tuesday, but it was all he needed, as he made 38 saves in a shutout win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Opposing starter Scott Darling and John Gibson matched zeroes more than halfway into the third period, until Devante Smith-Pelly scored a shorthanded goal to give the Ducks a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Gibson was shipped to the AHL after his disastrous season debut, but he's been terrific in two starts since coming back to the Ducks, stopping 54 of 55 shots. Unfortunately for the 21-year-old, however, Frederik Andersen has been magnificent in net to start the year.

Ducks Confirm Gibson For Tuesday

News: John Gibson will be given the starting nod Tuesday against the Blackhawks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: After No. 1 netminder Frederik Andersen suffered his first misstep of the season in Sunday's loss to the Sharks, John Gibson will get another chance to build on the bounce-back outing he delivered Friday against the Blue Jackets, which marked his first start since opening night. The Blackhawks will counter with Scott Darling in the opposite net.

Gibson On Track To Start Tuesday For Ducks

News: John Gibson was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is in line to start Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Fellow goaltender Frederik Andersen struggled a bit in his last outing, so it appears he will get a night off in favor of John Gibson, who gave up just one goal in a victory over the Blue Jackets in his last start Friday.

Gibson Keeps Ducks Rolling Friday

News: John Gibson turned away 16 of 17 shots Friday against the Blue Jackets, extending the Ducks' winning streak to seven games in the process.
Analysis: A sterling performance from his defense didn't allow John Gibson to see much work in this one, but he made the necessary saves to steer the Ducks into the win column. The steady outing was much-needed for Gibson after he was rocked for six goals in the opener against the Penguins, but it won't be enough for him to dramatically cut into Frederik Andersen's workload. After all, it was Andersen who had reeled off six straight wins to set the streak in motion in the first place.

Ducks Confirm Gibson For Friday

News: John Gibson has been confirmed as the starter for Friday's game against the Blue Jackets, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: While John Gibson has been surpassed by Frederik Andersen on the team's depth chart, coach Bruce Boudreau stated that he still intends to give the 21-year-old semi-frequent action in order to build his confidence. Boudreau will instead save the red-hot Andersen for the more critical matchup of the weekend, when the division-rival Sharks come to Anaheim.

Ducks' Gibson Appears In Line To Start Friday

News: John Gibson was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and looks on track to get the start Friday against the Blue Jackets, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Since John Gibson's six-goal debacle in the Ducks' season-opening loss to the Penguins, Frederik Andersen has reeled off wins in each of his last six starts to solidify himself as the team's top goaltender. As a result, Gibson could only be used sparingly while Andersen continues to guide the Ducks to victories. Even a respectable outing by Gibson on Friday might not be enough for him to significantly cut into Andersen's workload.

Ducks Recall Gibson

News: The Ducks recalled John Gibson from AHL Norfolk on Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: John Gibson earned the first start of the season for the Ducks, but gave up six goals on 39 shots in a loss to the Penguins. He'll return from the AHL and try to prove himself once again when he gets the opportunity. Gibson went 1-1, allowing two goals on 61 shots for a .902 save mark, in his two games with Norfolk.

Ducks Reassign Gibson To AHL Norfolk

News: John Gibson was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Wednesday.
Analysis: John Gibson was awarded the start against the Penguins in last week's season opener, but allowed six goals on 39 shots in the game. The Ducks subsequently turned to Frederik Andersen for the next three games, and have since seemed to settle on him as their primary netminder. However, Gibson won't be removed from the picture altogether, as the team announced that he will start only two games with Norfolk before returning to Anaheim, as the organization looks to keep him fresh. However, if Andersen continues to play well and assumes the bulk of the workload in the net in the coming weeks, Gibson could eventually head back to Norfolk for a more permanent stay.

Anaheim’s Gibson Expected To Start In Philadelphia

News: The Ducks will likely turn the net back to John Gibson in the second of back-to-back contests as they face off with the Flyers, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: John Gibson will be looking to bounce back after the team's season opener last Thursday, in which he surrendered six goals to the Penguins. His trip back to his hometown of Pittsburgh did not go so well for the young kid, but coach Bruce Boudreau still has confidence in him. Boudreau also noted that his plans were to play each netminder twice on the four-game road trip set to finish up next week. Gibson will likely square off against Steve Mason on Tuesday in what should be an interesting contest.

Ducks' Gibson Gives Up Six In Opening Loss

News: John Gibson was ripped for six goals on 39 shots in Thursday's season-opening loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: John Gibson had a strong debut with the Ducks late last season and into the playoffs, but this was not the way he wanted to start the new year. There were some softies in here, which could lead to Frederik Andersen making the start Saturday in Detroit.

Ducks To Go With Gibson In Goal Thursday Night

News: John Gibson is lined up to start Thursday's season opener against the Penguins, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: John Gibson was the first goalie off the ice following Thursday's morning skate, which indicates he will get the nod in the Ducks' season opener over Frederik Andersen. The two figure to share the goaltending duties for the Ducks in some fashion, but it appears Gibson has the upper hand early on.

Ducks' Gibson Will Start Tonight In LA

News: John Gibson was first off the ice and will get the nod in net tonight as the Ducks battle the Kings in Los Angeles, NHL.com's Curtis Zupke tweets.
Analysis: After a tough outing in his first preseason appearance, John Gibson will get another shot at not only impressing the coaching staff, but beating the team that knocked the Ducks out of the playoffs a season ago. Gibson played in four games against the Kings in the 2013-14 playoffs going 2-2, with a 2.25 GAA and .905 SV%, including a 28 save shutout. The Pittsburgh native is likely going to start the season as Fredrik Andersen's backup, but he should see quite a few starts this season. Andersen blanked the Avs in his only preseason appearance thus far.

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.
