John Gibson will serve as Frederik Andersen's understudy on Friday.
Gibson had previously spent the Ducks' playoff games in the press box. Andersen is coming off of a rough game, but he has been great in the postseason over all. With that in mind, we'd caution against interpreting this change as an indication that it won't take much for Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau to pull Andersen tonight. May 8 - 2:52 PM

John Gibson (flu) took part in Monday's practice.

Gibson was unavailable for Games 1 and 2 due to the illness. Before that he was being held off the 20-man lineup due to a hand injury. Of course, whether or not he dresses for games, Frederik Andersen is the one that will get the start. Andersen has a 1.64 GAA and .942 save percentage in six playoff games this year.

John Gibson (flu) won't be dressed for Sunday's game against Calgary.

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau would have keep Gibson away from his teammates. Gibson is expected to travel with the team when they head to Calgary for games three and four. Jason LaBarbera will dress as Frederik Andersen's backup tonight.

There's a good chance that John Gibson (hand) will start the second round as Frederik Andersen's understudy.

It sounded like Gibson would have been available for Game 4 of the first round, but the Ducks opted to wait. The starting gig is Andersen's to lose, but Gibson's return does give Anaheim a strong insurance policy should Andersen falter.

After skipping Friday's skate, John Gibson practiced with the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday.

The Ducks' long gap between playoff series could be a boon for Gibson, who is recovering from a hand injury suffered late in the season. The starting job is currently Frederik Andersen's to lose, but you never know what a few tough games might bring.

John Gibson (hand) did not skate on Friday.

Gibson was injured two weeks ago in practice and has not played or even backed up Frederik Andersen ever since. But he stated earlier in the week that he feels good enough to play. Gibson was 13-8-0 with a 2.60 GAA and a .914 save percentage in an injury-riddled season but is the Ducks goalie of the future as he is very highly regarded.

John Gibson (hand) feels good enough to play.

Gibson won't even serve as the backup in Game 4 though. Goaltender Frederik Andersen has helped Anaheim take a 3-0 lead over Winnipeg, so he would start either way. Under these circumstances, there's no reason for the Ducks to rush Gibson back and simultaneously shake things up.
Apr 22 - 2:12 PM

Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau noted that goalie John Gibson could be "about a week away" from returning to the team following this morning's practice.

This was Gibson's first practice since falling to a hand injury during the final week of the regular season. The Ducks have been going with veteran netminder Jason LaBarbera since. But with Andersen having turned away 84 of 91 shots through the first three games, and with the Ducks owning a 3-0 series lead over the Jets, Gibson shouldn't be in any rush to return.
Apr 21 - 8:46 PM

John Gibson (hand) did not practice once again on Friday and is considered doubtful for Game 2 on Saturday.

Gibson was injured in practice eight days ago and the Ducks were forced to recall Jason LaBarbera to back up Frederik Andersen. The Ducks hope that Gibson will return to the lineup shortly as he has been battling Andersen for the number one job in net for the Ducks.
Apr 18 - 6:12 AM

John Gibson won't be available for game one of Anaheim's first round playoff series against Winnipeg.

The 21-year-old missed a good chunk of the regular season because of injuries. Gibson sat out Anaheim's last regular season game because of the hand injury he suffered. The Ducks will go with Frederik Andersen in game one against Winnipeg, while Jason Labarbera will be the backup.
Apr 16 - 6:39 PM

John Gibson (hand) wasn't on the ice for Tuesday's practice.

Gibson also missed Monday's team skate. Gibson had a 2.60 GAA and .914 save percentage in 23 regular season contests. Look for Frederik Andersen to start in Game 1 on Thursday.
Apr 14 - 3:44 PM

John Gibson (upper body) missed Monday's practice.

Gibson's ailment is reportedly related to his hand. The Ducks are referring to him as day-to-day, but that will describe almost all injuries now as teams will be even more secretive about their players health now that they're in the playoffs.
Apr 14 - 10:25 AM

John Gibson (upper body) may not be available for the start of the playoffs.

Gibson was injured in practice on Friday and the Ducks were forced to recall Jason LaBarbera to back up Frederik Andersen for Saturday's finale in Arizona. Gibson was 13-8-0 this season with a 2.60 GAA and a .914 save percentage. He is likely the Ducks goalie of the future but certainly seems to get hurt a lot as he was on the shelf a few times this season with injuries.
Apr 12 - 6:01 AM

John Gibson has an upper body injury, and will be scratched from Saturday's season finale versus Arizona.

Jason LaBarbera will replace him as Frederik Andersen's backup for at least this game. No further details are known just yet about Gibson's injury, but it is not considered serious. Either way, Gibson finishes his rookie campaign 13-8-0 with a .914 save percentage and a 2.60 GAA over just 23 games. We'll keep you posted on his status.
Apr 11 - 8:32 PM

John Gibson made just 19 saves during his 4-2 loss to the Avalanche on Friday night.

Sometimes you have just have to hand it to the other team, as Reto Berra made 35 saves in the opposing cage. Gibson was solid all night long, and turned away three of four shots while on the penalty kill. His record now falls to 13-8-0 with a .914 save percentage and a 2.60 GAA.
