Date:

Brian Gibbons has cleared waivers and he'll head down to the minors.

He was hurt when the regular season started, so he'll work his way back into game shape in the AHL with Springfield. The Jackets will probably call upon his services at some point down the line.
Oct 15 - 1:35 PM

The Columbus Blue Jackets have waived Brian Gibbons.

Gibbons started the season on the injured reserve list due to an undisclosed ailment. He must be feeling better now and will play in the minors if he clears.
Oct 14 - 12:27 PM

Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) has been placed on injured reserve.

When he's able to return from whatever is ailing him, it isn't clear if he'll be in the lineup for the Blue Jackets. Gibbons had five goals and 17 points in 41 games with Pittsburgh last year.
Oct 6 - 6:09 PM

Brian Gibbons is dealing with an undisclosed injury.

Gibbons was held out of Friday's practice as a result, but he might skate on Saturday. Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards made it sound like Gibbons injury was minor.
Oct 3 - 1:52 PM

Brian Gibbons is expected to battle for a spot on Columbus' fourth line at training camp.

His main competition is slated to come from Corey Tropp, Jerry D'Amigo, Simon Hjalmarsson, Alex Wennberg and Kerby Rychel. Gibbons had five goals and 17 points in 41 games with the Penguins last year, but he did show flashes of offensive skill as well as great speed. His spot on the roster is precarious because he agreed to a two-way deal in July.
Aug 27 - 2:12 PM

The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed Brian Gibbons to a one-year, two-way deal.

Gibbons had five goals and 17 points in 41 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2013-14. He'll have a tough time earning a spot on the Blue Jackets' opening game roster and even if he does, we doubt he'll have any fantasy value in standard leagues.
Jul 4 - 4:04 PM

Brian Gibbons saw 10:14 minutes of action on Sunday.

Gibbons played as coach Dan Bylsma wanted to get more speed in the lineup to counter the Rangers. It worked in the 3-0 win. "His speed was a factor," Bylsma said. "I don't think he adds a physical element against the other team, but he does it with his speed." Tanner Glass was a healthy scratch as a result of Gibbons playing.
May 5 - 9:47 AM

Brian Gibbons is drawing into the lineup for the Penguins in Game 2 of their second-round series.

Gibbons had been out since suffering an undisclosed injury in Game 2 of the first round. Tanner Glass will be scratched. Gibbons tallied 17 points in 41 regular-season games this year. He scored twice in the first round.
May 4 - 7:19 PM

Brian Gibbons was medically cleared to return to action Saturday afternoon but it is not clear if he will play Sunday in Game 2 against the Rangers.

Gibbons hasn't played since he injured himself in Game 2 in the first round against the Blue Jackets. He may be a welcome addition as he scored twice in that game before exiting with the injury. Consider Gibbons day-to-day.
May 4 - 12:29 PM

He might be ready for Game 6 of the postseason after missing the last three contests with an undisclosed ailment.
Apr 28 - 6:48 PM

Apr 26 - 9:40 AM

Brian Gibbons (undisclosed) took part in Tuesday's optional practice.

Gibbons missed Game 3 on Monday due to the ailment. "There's no timetable right now," Gibbons said. "I just went out and got a skate. It felt good to skate. That's all I know." He got an opportunity to play alongside Chris Kunitz and Sidney Crosby before he got hurt.
Apr 22 - 5:38 PM

He didn't take part in the morning skate. Gibbons was hurt during the first period of Game 2 and he wasn't able to return.
