John Gibson will get the nod for Team North America on Wednesday afternoon against Sweden.

Matt Murray won't dress in the contest because of the thumb injury he suffered on Monday night, so Connor Hellebucyk will dress as the backup goalie.

John Gibson turned aside 29 of 33 shots in Sunday's 7-4 win over Team Europe.

Team North America dominated this game early, as they jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead. Gibson's numbers weren't great, but he did enough to get the job done. Look for Matt Murray to be Team North America's startling goalie when the tournament begins this week.

John Gibson will get the start in North America's pre-tournament game against Team Europe on Sunday.

Gibson will play the full 60 minutes. This is his first appearance of the tournament, as Matt Murray played in the first pre-tournament game against Team Europe last week.

John Gibson will be Anaheim's top option in goal next season now that Frederik Andersen has been traded to Toronto.

However, GM Bob Murray wants to add a backup goalie who is capable of seeing plenty of action in 2016-17. "We don't want to overplay John yet," Murray said. "(The backup will) have to be able to play 25 to 30 games. Character and hard-working type of guy. There are a few of them out there." Gibson posted a 21-13-4 record in 2015-16 along with a 2.07 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage.

If Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau has picked out his starting goaltender for Game 3 yet, he isn't sharing.

Which isn't too surprising given that this is the playoffs, but it does make Anaheim's goaltending the main question mark going into Tuesday's game. John Gibson started in the first two games of Anaheim's first round series, but the Ducks lost both contests, giving Gibson a 3.08 GAA and .900 save percentage in that span.

John Gibson allowed three goals on 27 shots in Sunday's 3-2 loss in Game 2 against Nashville.

The Ducks opened the scoring in the first period, but the Predators answered with three unanswered goals. Anaheim has now dropped the first two games of the series on home ice. The Ducks might be willing to change starting goaltenders in order to spark their team. Frederik Andersen could be in line to get the start in Game 3. Gibson has a 3.08 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage this postseason.

John Gibson will be in net Sunday night against Nashville in Game 2.

Gibson turned away 30 of 33 shots in Game 1, including all 11 on special teams. But it was a couple of weird deflections off his teammates that conspired against him and the Ducks on Friday. Expect another quality game from Gibson.
Apr 17 - 1:15 PM

Coach Bruce Boudreau would not guarantee that John Gibson will get the Game 2 start Sunday.

Before the series began, Boudreau said that the Ducks would go with one goalie and Gibson started Game 1, making 31 saves in a 3-2 loss. Frederik Andersen, according to Boudreau, 'never looked better' than he did in the regular season-ending win and Boudreau could change his mind about his starter. "I don’t know if I’m going to talk about my goalies right now," Boudreau said, putting an end to that conversation. Stay tuned.

John Gibson was simply unable to keep the Predators at bay as the Ducks fell in Game 1 on Friday.

Gibson turned away 30 of 33 shots, including all 11 asked of him on special teams. But a couple of odd squeakers later, and it's a loss for the Ducks. Gibson played quite well, sometimes the breaks just don't go the right way.
Apr 16 - 2:12 AM

John Gibson will be in net Friday night against Nashville in Game 1.

Gibson comes in 2-2-0 in four career playoff games with nine goals on 111 combined shots. Over the course of his still brief NHL career during the regular season, the young netminder is 37-21-4 with a 2.22 GAA and a .920 save percentage in 66 games.
Apr 15 - 8:04 PM

John Gibson will indeed start in Game 1 on Friday, per coach Bruce Boudreau.

That seemed probable after Gibson was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, but now we know for certain. Gibson posted a 2.07 GAA and .920 save percentage in 40 games this season.
Apr 15 - 2:22 PM

John Gibson was the first goaltender off the ice following the Ducks' morning skate.

That's usually a good indicator of who the team's starter will be, but you have to take that with a grain of salt, especially in the playoffs. The Ducks have two viable starters between Gibson and Frederik Andersen, so who their Game 1 goalie would be has been a mystery.
Apr 15 - 1:47 PM

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau isn't revealing who his starting goaltender will be in Game 1.

Boudreau might not have come to a decision yet and he joked that he might ultimately decide the starter by a coin toss. "Heads is Freddie, tails it will be Gibby," Boudreau said. "We’ll come up with one of them. But I have to believe down the road that both goalies are going to play." It's very unconventional to use both of your goaltenders in the playoffs unless one of them gets hurt or struggles, but John Gibson and Frederik Andersen are both worthy of the job.

John Gibson and Frederik Andersen have won the William M. Jennings Trophy.

The Jennings Trophy honors the goaltender(s) that play in at least 25 games for the team that allows the fewest goals. Both Gibson and Andersen met those qualifications. "We get our names on it but for me and Gibby, it’s a team effort. That’s how we feel about it," Andersen said. Andersen finished the campaign with a 2.30 GAA while Gibson had a 2.07 GAA.
