John Gibson missed practice on Friday with the stomach flu.

Gibson was pulled after two periods on Thursday and it was thought that it was to give Anton Khudobin some playing time but he apparently was unable to go because of the flu bug. When he had trouble keeping anything down on Friday, he was told not to come to the rink. Gibson, who recently signed a three-year/$6.9 million contract, is slated to start the season in the minors to get in some playing time. He will be recalled if there is an injury to Frederik Andersen or Khudobin but if Andersen gets hurt, look for Gibson to take over the reins in the Anaheim net. You can select him late in keeper pools but we would pass at this time in re-draft leagues.

John Gibson stopped all 20 shots Colorado sent his way over the first two periods in Thursday's 3-0 win.

It was a combined shutout with Anton Khudobin, who appeared just to get some work in. Gibson is expected to begin the season in the minors where he'll try to lead Anaheim's AHL affiliate San Diego instead of sitting behind Frederik Andersen.
Oct 2 - 1:17 AM

Expect to see John Gibson in the AHL this season.

The Ducks just inked Gibson to a three-year/$6.9 million contract but with Frederik Andersen entrenched as the number one netminder, Anaheim does not want Gibson to languish on the bench, so a trip to San Diego is on tap. Anton Khudobin is slated to be the backup, but if anything happens to Andersen, then the Ducks will recall Gibson and put him into the net. We cannot recommend Gibson in redraft pools but can in a dynasty league.

Ducks GM Bob Murray is relieved to have John Gibson locked up to a three-year, $6.9 million contract.

"I have some security now," Murray said. "That’s the bottom line. I’m very comfortable with where we are. Before, I was a little bit up in the air because of so many things that could happen. And now we have one of our good young goalies going forward, locked up for four more years right now." In the short-term, Gibson is expected to serve in the AHL, but there is no question now that Anaheim expects him to play with the NHL club in 2016-17 when this new deal kicks in. If all goes according to the Ducks' plan, he'll be competing with Frederik Andersen for ice time at that point.
Sep 22 - 4:58 AM

John Gibson has signed a three-year extension with Anaheim.

The deal carries an annual average value of $2.3 million with a reported breakdown of $1.5 million in 2016-17, $2.1 million in 2017-18 and $3.3 million during the 2018-19 campaign. Gibson is a future number one netminder, but Frederik Andersen is expected to tend to Anaheim's crease this season.

Anaheim GM Bob Murray said that goaltender John Gibson is not on the trade block.

There were plenty of rumors when Murray dealt for Carolina netminder Anton Khudobin but the GM nixed those thoughts quickly in a press conference. "It’s funny," Murray said. "I make a deal and everybody obviously assumes one of the two is going. Maybe everybody should look back at what went on last year and the [bad situations] that were created with the injuries with these two guys and the different ways we tried to fix it and didn’t work. This way, we’re covered. We’re covered right now. I have no idea how it’ll play out at the start. But I just know I’ve got my back end covered right now." It looks like Frederik Andersen is slated to start and Gibson could find himself in the minors as he does not have to clear waivers next season.

The Edmonton Oilers have reportedly approached the Anaheim Ducks about the availability of John Gibson.

Gibson is still young and he has a great future ahead of him, but he did serve as Anaheim’s backup goaltender behind Frederik Andersen this season. Despite not playing a ton of games this year, it’s incredibly unlikely that the Ducks would be willing to part ways with Gibson. The 21-year-old had a 13-8 record with a 2.60 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage in 23 games this season.
Jun 4 - 6:59 PM

Goaltender John Gibson should be in a battle with Frederik Andersen for the top job in Anaheim heading into next season.

The battle was supposed to occur this season but Gibson battled injuries instead as he suffered a hand injury at the end of the regular season that handed Andersen the undisputed net heading into the playoffs. Gibson also suffered a groin injury in October that wrecked his first half of the season. Gibson finished the season with a 13-8-0 record as well as a .914 save percentage and a 2.60 GAA over just 23 games.
May 31 - 7:20 AM

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.
May 5 - 9:34 AM

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.
May 3 - 2:17 PM

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.
Apr 27 - 6:20 AM

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.
Apr 25 - 1:48 PM

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.
