John Gibson, G, ANA Ducks' Gibson Wins Again

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson Wins Again

News: John Gibson stopped 20 of 22 shots in a 4-2 win over the Kings on Friday.
Analysis: That's four wins in the last five starts for the rookie, who appears to be adjusting well to life in the NHL. Too bad then, that starter Freddy Anderson (neck) was activated from injured reserve Friday, likely spelling the end of John Gibson's time as a starter. He'll get to stick with the Ducks in a backup role, though, and could be a nice spot-start option down the stretch when Andersen needs a rest.

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson To Start Friday

News: John Gibson will start Friday's game against Los Angeles, the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: John Gibson will make an eighth consecutive start, but with Jason LaBarbera demoted to AHL Norfolk on Friday, it appears Frederik Andersen (upper body) is at least ready to serve as the backup. The Ducks may send Gibson down to the AHL to give him regular work, but there's also some chance the team opts to keep him around to spell Andersen.

No Offensive Support For Ducks' Gibson

News: John Gibson turned aside 31 of 33 pucks but ended up the loser as the Ducks were shut out 3-0 at home by Ottawa on Wednesday. The third goal was an empty-netter.
Analysis: Despite falling short of grabbing his fourth consecutive win, John Gibson was terrific in this one, so owners counting on a win should be more disappointed in the Quackers' scorers than the rookie netminder. The 21-year-old has racked up some serious crease time of late with Freddy Andersen (neck) shelved, appearing in eight straight games. Gibson is likely to get shipped back down to AHL Norfolk when Andersen returns from injury to allow him to continue to play regularly.

John Gibson

Ducks Going With Gibson On Wednesday

News: John Gibson will be in the crease for Wednesday's game against the Sens, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: John Gibson enters the net a winner of three consecutive games and will be making his seventh straight start. His rate stats (2.74 GAA, .912 save percentage) haven't been great during his time with the Ducks this season, but he's still represents the team's second-best option in goal behind Frederik Andersen (neck), who remains on IR. Andersen seems to be making progress in his recovery and could be back by the weekend, but that doesn't necessarily mean Gibson will stick around as the backup goalie. Since he's still just 21 years old, the Ducks would prefer Gibson play close to a regular basis, which he'd be able to do at AHL Norfolk.

John Gibson, G, ANA Ducks' Gibson Clips Wings Monday

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson Clips Wings Monday

News: John Gibson put forth a 35-save performance Monday, giving up three goals in a 4-3 shootout victory over the visiting Red Wings.
Analysis: After a pair of ghastly losses to Tampa Bay and Washington in which he coughed up nine goals, the rookie netminder has strung together three straight wins. John Gibson appears to be gaining momentum after a slow start in relief of starter Freddy Andersen (upper body), but his tenure of temporary starter in Orange County could be coming to an end soon with Andersen having resumed skating and nearing a return. Nonetheless, Gibson has recorded a 2.74 GAA, .912 save percentage and 6-4-0 record in 10 starts this season, and remains a fine fantasy option between the pipes as long as he's getting the nod.

2/23/2015

John Gibson, G, ANA

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson To Start Monday

News: John Gibson will start between the pipes Monday against the Red Wings, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: John Gibson's backup has yet to be determined, but it will likely be the newly recalled Jason LaBarbera despite Frederik Andersen's (upper body) presence on the ice before morning skate. Despite the shuffle behind him, Gibson will search for his third straight victory in net Monday, facing a Red Wings squad averaging 2.93 goals per contest.

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson: 26 Saves And Second-Straight Win

News: John Gibson made 26 saves in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the Oilers.
Analysis: He has wins in back-to-back games, but Frederik Andersen could be back from IR as early as Monday. John Gibson will likely be dispatched to the AHL to continue his tutelage, so don't give away the farm to get him.

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson Starting Saturday

News: John Gibson will start in goal Saturday against the Oilers.
Analysis: Coach Bruce Boudreau will stick with John Gibson for the second half of a back-to-back set, marking his fifth straight start for the Ducks. Gibson picked up a win over Calgary on Friday but has posted just a 3.53 GAA and .887 save percentage in his last five appearances.

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson Grabs Fourth Win Friday

News: John Gibson made 25 of 28 saves in a 6-3 win over the Flames on Friday.
Analysis: This was John Gibson's second win in five starts since starter Freddy Anderson (upper body) went down. It was nice to see him grab the W after allowing nine goals in the previous two starts (both losses) against Tampa Bay and Washington, but he still hasn't been very good in relief. In saying that, his play probably has him booked for a trip back down to AHL Norfolk once Andersen returns.

2/20/2015

John Gibson, G, ANA

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson To Start Friday

News: John Gibson will start Friday's game in Calgary, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: With Frederik Anderesen (upper body) still sidelined, John Gibson gets a fourth consecutive start. Andersen isn't traveling with the team, so either Gibson or Ilya Bryzgalov will start Saturday game in Edmonton.

John Gibson, G, ANA

John Gibson

Gibson Suffers Second Straight Loss

News: John Gibson allowed four goals - all in the second period - on 32 shots in Wednesday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: John Gibson did make his third straight start for the division leading Ducks, but with regular starter Frederik Andersen (upper body) set to return soon, Gibson will likely be sent back down to the minors within the next few days. Look elsewhere for options between the pipes.

John Gibson

Ducks Going With Gibson On Wednesday

News: John Gibson will be in the crease for Wednesday's game against the Lightning, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: John Gibson will earn his third start in a row, as it appears he's unseated Ilya Bryzgalov for regular netminding duties while Frederik Andersen (upper body) remains sidelined. The young goalie has been a mixed bag during his latest stay with the Ducks, producing a 1-1-0 record and .890 save percentage over his three appearances (two starts). Gibson is viewed as the Ducks' goalie of the future, but he'll be shipped back to AHL Norfolk for further development time once Andersen is ready to go.

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson Likely To Start Sunday

News: John Gibson appears likely to start Sunday's game against the Capitals, according to Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.
Analysis: Per the Ducks' official site, Sunday's starting goaltender may not be confirmed until pre-game warm ups, but with John Gibson coming off a 35-save effort in Thursday's 2-1 win at Carolina, it looks like he'll draw another start on Sunday.

2/15/2015

John Gibson, G, ANA

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson Gives Up Five Goals In Loss

News: John Gibson gave up five goals on 28 shots in Sunday's loss to Washington.
Analysis: Not a good outing from John Gibson, who falls to 3-3-0 on the season with a .912 save percentage and 2.78 GAA. We wouldn't be worried about his performance Sunday, though, as he was victimized by the red-hot Alexander Ovechkin and had allowed just seven goals in his last five appearances. With No.1 goalie Frederik Andersen on the IR, Gibson makes for a great fantasy play until the starter returns.

2/15/2015

John Gibson, G, ANA

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson Starting Sunday

News: John Gibson will start Sunday's game against the Capitals, Curtis Zupke of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: John Gibson stopped 35-of-36 shots in Thursday's win over Carolina, and he'll try to carry the momentum over against a much tougher opponent. Frederik Andersen (upper body) is eligible to return from injured reserve for Wednesday's game against Tampa Bay, but he may not be ready to play.

Gibson Stands Tall For Ducks

News: John Gibson turned away 35 of 36 shots Thursday in a 2-1 win over Carolina.
Analysis: Despite being bombarded with more than twice as many shots as opposing netminder Cam Ward, John Gibson stole this one for the Ducks. Ilya Bryzgalov is patently useless, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Gibson draw nearly all the action for Anaheim while Frederik Andersen (upper body) remains out.

John Gibson

Ducks' Gibson Set To Start Thursday

News: John Gibson is slated to start Thursday's game against the Hurricanes, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: With Frederik Andersen hurting, John Gibson -- who took over for Ilya Bryzgalov in Tuesday's loss to the Panthers -- is thus in line to make his first start in goal for the Ducks since Oct. 30.

Ducks' Gibson Struggles In Relief

News: John Gibson stopped only 15 of the 18 shots he faced in relief of Ilya Bryzgalov during Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Panthers.
Analysis: Making his first appearance with the Ducks since Oct. 24, John Gibson looked quite rusty. Even so, he acquitted himself better than Ilya Bryzgalov who gave up three goals on eight shots before he was pulled with 14 minutes remaining in the second period. Coach Bruce Boudreau hasn't stated his goalie plans for Thursday's game in Carolina, but given Bryzgalov's continual struggles this season, Gibson seems most likely to get the nod.

Ducks' Gibson To Serve As Backup Tuesday

News: John Gibson will serve as the backup to Ilya Bryzgalov during Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Recalled earlier in the day Tuesday, John Gibson was believed to have the inside track on starting duties while Frederik Anderson (upper body) remains on IR, but coach Bruce Boudreau surprising tabbed Ilya Bryzgalov for the outing. Bryzgalov was solid in his previous start Friday against the Capitals, but has generally been unreliable this season, going 1-3-1 with a 3.95 GAA and .859 save percentage. If Bryzgalov reverts to his usual form Tuesday, there's a good chance Gibson could surpass him on the depth chart for the duration of Andersen's absence.

Ducks Recall Gibson From AHL

News: John Gibson was recalled from AHL Norfolk on Tuesday, NHL.com's Kevin Weekes reports.
Analysis: The Ducks have labeled Frederik Andersen as day-to-day after he suffered an upper-body injury in Sunday's loss to the Lightning, but it sounds like he won't be available for at least Tuesday's game against the Panthers. As a result, look for the newly recalled John Gibson to occupy the Anaheim net Tuesday and for the duration of Andersen's absence, as Ilya Bryzgalov has not played well enough this season to merit extended duty. Aside from a rough Opening Night start against the Penguins, Gibson has been excellent both with Norfolk and the big club this season, including a 2-2-0 record, 2.28 GAA and .927 save percentage over four outings with the Ducks.

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.
