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. Oct 30 - 11:54 PM

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.
Oct 30 - 4:50 PM

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.
Oct 28 - 2:33 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.

John Gibson is back with the Ducks after playing in two games with AHL Norfolk.

Anaheim plays Wednesday, Friday and Sunday this week, so there's a chance that Gibson could see his second NHL start of the season.
Oct 20 - 3:09 PM

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.
Oct 19 - 4:56 AM

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.
Oct 15 - 3:56 PM

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.
Oct 14 - 9:35 AM

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.
Oct 10 - 1:37 AM

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.
