John Gibson got the win in goal for Norfolk on Friday but lost on Saturday to the Manchester Monarchs.

The Admirals won 3-2 Friday with Gibson stopping 32 shots but he gave up all four on only 27 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Kings minor league affiliate as the Admirals and Monarchs clashed in two games. Look for Gibson to be recalled this week and with the Ducks playing all three at home, he should get one start in place of Frederik Andersen.

Interestingly, it was John Gibson that proposed to the Ducks that he be temporarily sent to the AHL.

With Frederik Andersen off to a strong start, Gibson felt it would be in his best interests to get some starts in the minors to hone his game. "He's a great kid," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "He wants to get better. He practices hard. But the only way you can really improve is getting in games. This is a smart move by Gibby. He knows that he's a good goalie. He just wants to get a little sharper." It's too early to assume that Andersen will run away with the starting gig this season, even if he clearly has the inside track.

John Gibson has been reassigned to AHL Norfolk.

The Ducks plan to keep him the AHL for two games this weekend and then bring him back up. Gibson was lit up by Pittsburgh in Anaheim's season opener and he hasn't played since, but he'll still get more opportunities as 2014-15 progresses.

John Gibson will probably start for Anaheim in Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.

Gibson will try to bounce back after allowing six goals on 39 shots in his season debut. That being said, Philadelphia is sure to be hungry for a win given that they're off to a 0-2-1 start.

John Gibson had a terrible night in his hometown of Pittsburgh, allowing six goals on 39 shots.

At time it hardly seemed fair to the rookie netminder, who couldn't get comfortable in net all night long. Hopefully this was merely hometown and opening night jitters.

John Gibson will be in goal for the Ducks in Thursday's regular season opener at Pittsburgh.

That's a bold move by Anaheim, but Gibson has excellent potential and the vote of confidence could be beneficial. The 21-year-old netminder had a 3-0-0 record with a .954 save percentage and a 1.33 GAA in three outings with the Ducks last season. He's expected to share the crease with Frederik Andersen in 2014-15.
Oct 9 - 1:19 PM

John Gibson could get the start in goal for the opener over Frederik Andersen.

The Ducks have two goaltenders who are pretty even at this point but the rookie Gibson could get the start as the Ducks are in Pittsburgh, Gibson's hometown. The 21-year-old is regarded as the best goalie prospect at this time but Andersen also played quite well last season. Look for coach Bruce Boudreau to split the net between the two this season unless one gets very hot.
Oct 5 - 6:20 AM

John Gibson blocked 30 of 33 shots in the Ducks’ 3-1 loss against the Sharks on Saturday night.

Gibson has now made 86 of 96 saves during the preseason, so he hasn’t exactly found any kind of groove in the early going and it's probably hurting his chances of wrestling the number-one job from Frederik Andersen. Matt Beleskey scored the lone goal for the Ducks.
Sep 27 - 11:01 PM

John Gibson's preseason hasn't quite gone according to plan as he's allowed seven goals in two games on 63 shots, including three goals to the Kings on Thursday.

In the twenty minutes between the midpoints of the second and third periods, while up 2-0, the Kings' Jordan Nolan sniped home a rebound through a screen; Dwight King roofed a far-side one-timer; and Tyler Taffoli ripped a straight snapper over Gibson's glove on a breakaway to go up 3-2. He's supposed to be challenging Frederik Andersen for the number one goalie gig, but at this rate, Andersen might win it be default.
Sep 26 - 2:37 AM

John Gibson got the start and made 25 saves on 29 shots in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Arizona Coyotes.

Neither team had close to their starting lineups for this game so it's a little hard to judge Gibson on this start. It obviously wasn't the start he was looking for but Gibson is still expected to battle Frederik Andersen for playing time this season and could be a nice fantasy starter at some point this season. He is a great pick in dynasty formats.
Sep 24 - 1:46 AM

Anaheim goaltender John Gibson was ranked number 2 among prospects by heading into the 2014-15 season.

Gibson placed behind only the dynamic Jonathan Drouin and was easily the top netminder on the list. He's expected to enter the season in a battle for playing time with Frederik Andersen and stands a good chance to carve out a significant role.
Sep 9 - 9:42 PM

The future of John Gibson in net for the Anaheim Ducks just got rosier with the news that Jonas Hiller will not return next season.

The Ducks will go with Gibson and Frederik Andersen in goal in 2014-15 and many think that Gibson will get the top job eventually as he is rated at or near the top of most prospects lists for players coming into the NHL. He is worth a gamble next season in pools as he saw some playoff action against the Kings in round two and looked quite good.
Jun 21 - 10:35 AM

The playoff series between the Ducks and Kings started in storybook fashion for John Gibson and ended Friday night with a chapter he’ll want to rewrite.

Gibson, the Ducks’ 20-year-old goalie prodigy, had a sterling Game 4 shutout that got his team even in the best-of-seven set. It ended Friday with him watching from the bench in the second period. The Kings blitzed him for four goals on 18 shots and chased him from the game two minutes into the second period, dealing the seemingly unfazed rookie the lowest of moments in a 6-2 Game 7 rout. Gibson said: "We weren’t ready from the start. I didn’t make the saves I had to make and we lost the game." Teammate Andrew Cogliano said: "I think a lot of the buzz is going to be about him and I think that’s unfortunate because he was in a pretty tough spot and he’s a young guy. Obviously he didn’t have the game he wanted to. I’m sure he can say that for himself. I don’t think he deserves any of the blame for this loss."

John Gibson was yanked after allowing four goals in the first 22 minutes of an ugly 6-2 Game 7 loss for the hometown Ducks on Friday night versus L.A.

Gibson earned two massive wins for Anaheim in Games 4 & 5 in the series, proving he could be a star that was raised through the U.S. National Team Development Program. But Game 7 was not a pleasant evening for the rookie, as the Kings hammered the Ducks, overcame 3-2 deficit in the series and trudged on to the Western Conference Finals.
