With his sixth goal of the campaign Friday night, Brian Gibbons has scored more goals in 12 games this season than he had in his entire NHL career.
That's right. Going into this season Gibbons had scored five goals in 66 NHL contests. He's obliterated that total in just a dozen games. That said, we think this is just a blip on the radar and Gibbons will turn into a pumpkin very shortly. Nov 4 - 12:05 PM

Brian Gibbons scored again on Saturday and leads the New Jersey Devils in goals with five.

Two goals have come shorthanded as Gibbons has been a very pleasant surprise thus far. He played for the Rangers farm club last season and was in camp on a professional tryout before making the team. We don't think he has much fantasy value but we thought that at the beginning of the season and look what he has done so far.

Brian Gibbons found the back of the net in the Devils' 6-3 win over Toronto on Wednesday.

Gibbons managed to score on a five-on-three shorthanded situation, which makes him the first player in the Devils' franchise history to do so. That marker really was critical as the Devils entered that shorthanded situation with just a 3-2 lead and Gibbons scored early in the penalty kill to stifle the Leafs' opportunity to build some momentum. Gibbons now has two goals and three points in three games this season.

Brian Gibbons (knee) has now missed roughly five weeks after initially being projected to miss two-to-three.

Despite that, Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards insists that Gibbons hasn't suffered a setback. "It's a knee, so everybody reacts differently," Richards said. "I wouldn't say it's severe, but it's something that has gone on a bit longer. All I know is that he is progressing, too." Gibbons hasn't accompanied the Blue Jackets on their current road trip, so he obviously won't return for Wednesday's game in Winnipeg.
