John Gibson turned aside 31 shots in a 3-2 loss to Leigh Valley on Friday.

Gibson was sent to Norfolk of the AHL in the middle of December after returning from a groin injury that kept him on the shelf for seven weeks. He is currently 2-2-2 with Norfolk of the AHL with a 2.36 GAA and a .928 save percentage. With the Ducks signing Ilya Bryzgalov to a contract, Gibson may spend a large portion of the rest of the season in the minors.
Jan 3 - 6:27 AM

John Gibson (groin) has been assigned to the minors.

He hasn't played since Oct. 30 because of a groin injury, which he suffered on Nov. 2 during warmups at Colorado. With Frederik Andersen and Ilya Bryzgalov in the fold for Anaheim, Gibson will be afforded some time to play in the minors. We wouldn't completely rule him out from returning to the NHL at some point, though.

John Gibson (groin) is now able to participate in practices.

Ilya Bryzgalov has signed with the Ducks, so there might not be a spot for Gibson on the Ducks once he's healthy. The most likely scenario is that Gibson will be sent to the minors once he's ready to play so that he can at very least shake off the rust. If Bryzgalov proves to be a solid backup under Frederik Andersen though, Gibson might not rejoin the Ducks this season.

John Gibson is expected to finish the season in the AHL once he comes back from injury.

With Ilya Bryzgalov possibly signing with the Ducks and if he does he would backup Frederik Andersen, Gibson is expected to get some more seasoning in Norfolk. He was 2-2 in four games with a .927 save percentage and a 2.28 goals against average with the Ducks before getting hurt.

John Gibson has been placed on the injured reserve list with a groin problem.

John Gibson (lower body) will be examined by team doctors in Anaheim Monday.

John Gibson lost for the first time since Oct. 6, allowing two goals on 29 shots in a 2-0 loss to the Blues on Thursday night.

Gibson drops to 2-2 on the season so far. The 21-year-old has now started four of the Ducks' 11 games, as Frederik Andersen has emerged with the upper hand following a 6-1 start. The rookie didn't play badly though on Thursday, and would have likely fared better if Anaheim's offense had played like they normally do.

John Gibson will be back in Anaheim's cage for Thursday's game versus St. Louis.

The move should come as no surprise after he pitched a 38-save shutout victory against Chicago on Tuesday night. Gibson will be facing a banged up Blues team, which is missing their top two centers (Paul Stastny and David Backes) as well as T.J. Oshie.

Anaheim goaltender John Gibson was superb on Tuesday as he turned away 38 shots en route to a 1-0 shutout victory over Chicago.

Gibson very clearly has maintained a role with this Ducks teams despite Frederik Andersen's early season heroics and should be rostered in all formats. The win raises Gibson's record to 2-1-0 on the year and improves his GAA and save percentage to 2.33 and .926, respectively.

John Gibson will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

It will be Gibson's second start in three games. He kicked out 16 of 17 shots in a 4-1 victory over Columbus on Friday.
Tue, Oct 28, 2014 02:33:00 PM

John Gibson finally got his first win of the season Friday night, beating Columbus 4-1.

The Blue Jackets only sent 17 pucks his way, never more than seven in a period. but a win's a win. Even Scott Hartnell's powerplay goal late in the first to make it 2-1 Anaheim was flukey, as Gibson went to bat away the puck and it hit Hampus Lindholm and in. Might this be the start of the next great goalie war in Anaheim? Tune in to find out!

John Gibson is expected to start in Friday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Gibson played in the Ducks' season opener against Pittsburgh, but he allowed six goals on 39 shots in that game. Frederik Andersen started in Anaheim's second game and has gone on an impressive 6-0-0 run. In the middle of that, Gibson asked the Ducks if he could be temporarily reassigned to the minors so that he could get in a couple starts. Thanks to Gibson's decision to play in the AHL, he shouldn't be rusty going into this contest.
