The Anaheim Ducks clearly feel comfortable with their current goalie setup, as they sent John Gibson to the AHL.
Clearly, the Ducks' worries are no longer there for Frederik Andersen and Jonas Hiller right now. It was a little surprising Anaheim's situation was so wide open to begin with. We'll see if it's Hiller - Andersen if the Ducks have a deep playoff run. Apr 20 - 5:24 PM

The NHL selected John Gibson as the second star of the week on Monday.

He played in the first three games of his NHL career and made a great first impression. Gibson went 3-0-0 with a 1.33 goals-against average, .954 save percentage and one shutout. He's an outstanding prospect and it probably won't be long before he is Anaheim's starting goaltender.
Apr 14 - 2:28 PM

Rookie goalie John Gibson steered aside 29 shots in regulation and overtime before he and the Anaheim Ducks beat the visiting Colorado Avalanche 3-2 in the overtime period Sunday night.

Both teams were already locked into playoff matchups before the puck dropped. Anaheim won its first Western Conference title Saturday and will play the Dallas Stars in the first round. Colorado won the Central Division, its first division crown since 2002-03, when the St. Louis Blues lost to the Detroit Red Wings earlier Sunday, and will play the Minnesota Wild. Gibson won three games in his three Anaheim appearances. He winds up with a GAA of 1.33 and a save percentage of .954.
Apr 13 - 11:20 PM

Rookie goalie John Gibson turned aside 36 of 38 shots in Anaheim's 5-2 win over San Jose Wednesday night.

Gibson, 20, got the start over the struggling Jonas Hiller in the biggest game of the season for Anaheim in a lively playoff atmosphere and made 36 saves. He has stopped 54 of 56 shots in two NHL games and makes Anaheim's goaltending situation even more interesting.
Apr 10 - 3:38 AM

John Gibson will start in his second straight game on Wednesday.

Gibson is being rewarded for shutting out the Vancouver Canucks in his NHL debut. It's worth keeping an eye on him, because he might end up on the Ducks' roster next season if they don't re-sign Jonas Hiller.
Apr 9 - 3:31 PM

John Gibson became the youngest goaltender in NHL history to record a shutout in his NHL debut Monday.

Gibson was 20 years, 207 days old, beating Darren Puppa's record set in 1985 while playing for the Sabres, by 16 days. Gibson is the best goaltending prospect in hockey and a top-three overall prospect regardless of position. His outstanding potential may allow the Ducks to let Jonas Hiller become a UFA at the end of the season and give the Ducks a Gibson-Fredrik Andersen goaltending duo going into the 2014-15 season.
Apr 8 - 7:04 AM

John Gibson stopped all 18 shots he faced in Anaheim's 3-0 win over Vancouver Monday evening.

Gibson, a highly-touted prospect in his first pro season, got the start after No. 1 goalie Jonas Hiller struggled in a 4-2 loss against the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday, and backup Frederik Andersen was injured by a shot off his mask on Friday. It was a dream start for Gibson's NHL career, but it is likely that Hiller will be between the pipes on Wednesday as the Ducks will play against the Sharks.
Apr 8 - 2:59 AM

John Gibson will make his NHL debut on Monday night.

He was the first goaltender off the ice in the morning and will get the nod against Vancouver after he was called up from the minors on Sunday.
Apr 7 - 4:38 PM

John Gibson might make his NHL debut on Monday.

Gibson was called up to fill in for the injured Fredrik Andersen. Jonas Hiller played between the pipes on Sunday and Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau pointed out that the Ducks don't usually ask the same goalie to start on back-to-back days. "We certainly want to see Gibson. … We have all the faith in him in the world," Boudreau said. "We think he's going to just be a superstar. But at the same time, it's his first year." Gibson has a 2.34 GAA and .919 save percentage in 45 AHL games this season.
Apr 7 - 9:08 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have recalled goaltender John Gibson from Norfolk of the AHL.

The recall was necessitated by the injury on Friday night to Fredrik Andersen. Andersen is expected to miss at least a couple of games and Gibson could be in line for at least one start as regular netminder Jonas Hiller has been struggling of late. Gibson is the top goaltending prospect in hockey and could be given a shot to start as early as next season in the Ducks net.
Apr 6 - 6:10 AM

John Gilson was sent back to Norfolk of the AHL.

Gibson was recalled a few days ago when practicing resumed in the NHL as the Ducks regular goalie Jonas Hiller was not yet back from participating in the Olympic Games. He has a chance to make the Ducks or even start next season as Anaheim still has to decide if he is ready and whether or not to re-sign Jonas Hiller.
Feb 23 - 5:20 AM

John Gibson has been sent down to the minors.

Jonas Hiller has recovered from an illness, so the Ducks needed to send down a netminder. Gibson has plenty of potential, but it might take a few seasons for him to establish himself in the NHL.
Jan 17 - 1:32 PM

John Gibson may make his first career NHL start Sunday at home against the Red Wings.

Jonas Hiller is between the pipes Saturday, and coach Bruce Boudreau left open the chance of the 20-year-old getting a start tomorrow. "I guess a lot depends on Hiller too," Boudreau said. "Let's see how he feels tonight after the game. Five o'clock game tomorrow. Might even see Gibson in that game. Who knows?" Gibson said he is taking it "day by day" and will be ready when his chance comes. He has a 2.61 goals-against average and .915 save percentage in the AHL this season.
Jan 11 - 7:40 PM

Anaheim has promoted John Gibson.

Gibson will serve as Jonas Hiller's understudy for the time being. Gibson has a lot of potential, but he won't have much, if any, fantasy value in the second half of the 2013-14 campaign.
Jan 10 - 2:18 PM

John Gibson suffered an injury on Friday during a collision with Syracuse’s Mike Angelidis.

GM Bob Murray said the injury was not serious but the second period collision forced Gibson to miss the rest of the game. Gibson has an 8-5-3 record, 2.31 GAA and .928 save percentage for the Crunch this season and many regard the current Bob Johnson Award winner as the Ducks goalie of the future.
