John Gibson will face Vancouver on Sunday night.

After allowing seven goals on 50 shots in his first two games, Gibson has allowed just four goals over his last two games on 50 shots as well. Which is to say he's rounding into shape nicely, and is a must-start against the Canucks.
Oct 23 - 3:44 PM

John Gibson stopped 20 of 22 shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Gibson got off to a rocky start, as he allowed seven goals in his first two games, but has responded by giving just four in his last two outings. You can't fault Gibson on either of Philadelphia's two goals tonight. He has a 1-2-1 record with a 2.80 goals-against-average and a .890 save percentage this season.

John Gibson will play between the pipes Thursday night.

Gibson and the Ducks will be looking for their first win of the 2016-17 campaign. He has a 3.07 GAA and .885 save percentage in three contests.
Oct 20 - 2:27 PM

John Gibson stopped 26 of 28 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Devils.

Although he has given up less and less goals in every start this season, Gibson continues to search for his first win of 2016-17. He was great in 41 games last season, and the Ducks were hoping for more of that when they traded Frederik Andersen to the Maple Leafs during the off-season. But Gibson has failed to meet expectations so far. He's now 0-2-1, with a GAA of 3.07 and a .885 save percentage through three starts this season. If he continues to struggle, the Ducks might be forced to give Jonathan Bernier a few more starts than they'd like.

John Gibson will be between the pipes Tuesday against New Jersey.

It will mark his second straight start and third of the season. Gibson is off to a sluggish start with a 0-1-1 record, a 3.59 goals-against average and an .860 save percentage.
Oct 18 - 3:41 PM

John Gibson made 27 saves on 30 shots on Sunday, which was enough to earn the Ducks a point in their overtime loss to the Islanders.

Gibson is now winless through two starts this season with a 3.60 goals against average and .860 save percentage. The 23-year-old is off to a less than ideal start, but will certainly be a valuable fantasy commodity this season.
Oct 16 - 10:17 PM

Confirming an earlier note, John Gibson will indeed face the Islanders on Sunday night.

Gibson hasn't fared quite that well against Eastern foes in 27 games, he's posted a 9-13-2 with an .898 save percentage and 32 goals against. But with just three games playing tonight, we'd roll the dice if he's your best option available.
Oct 16 - 5:31 PM

Expect John Gibson to take on the Islanders on Sunday.

Jonathan Bernier took Saturday's match against the Penguins and lost 3-2, so it'd be surprising if Gibson doesn't go tonight. In his one game against New York, he turned away 18 of 19 a no-decision over two periods of play. However Gibson hasn't fared quite that well against Eastern foes in 27 games, he's posted a 9-13-2 with an .898 save percentage and 32 goals against.
Oct 16 - 1:02 PM

John Gibson allowed four goals on just 20 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Dallas Stars.

With Frederik Andersen now in Toronto, the Ducks will rely heavily on Gibson this season. The 23-year-old is one of the best young goalies in the NHL, but expect him to have some growing pains along the way. Fantasy owners might have to be patient with him, but he's too talented to pass up.
Oct 14 - 1:12 AM

John Gibson is expected to start Thursday night.

With Frederik Andersen now in Toronto, Gibson has entered the 2016-17 campaign as the Ducks' clear starter. Gibson had a 2.07 GAA and .920 save percentage in 40 games last season.
Oct 13 - 3:42 PM

John Gibson sat out the final game of the preseason with an illness.

The bug is going around the Anaheim locker room and Gibson was its latest victim. While he is expected to be okay in time for the Ducks season opener in Dallas Thursday, you just never know. Gibson is slated to be the Ducks number one goalie but could get challenged at times from Jonathan Bernier. Drafting both isn't the worst thing in the world and it will give you top-notch goaltending as Anaheim is one of the best teams in the NHL.
Oct 10 - 6:41 AM

John Gibson blocked 35 shots and let two fly past in the 2-1 victory of the Edmonton Oilers over the Anaheim Ducks.

Gibson was hardly the reason for the loss with a save percentage of .946; he was simply gunned down as he faced 11 more shots than the Oilers. Last year, Gibson had a save percentage of .920.
Oct 5 - 12:08 AM

The Anaheim Ducks gave split duty to their goalies on Saturday; John Gibson and Jonathan Bernier played roughly 30 minutes each.

Bernier allowed two goals while Gibson gave up one in the Anaheim Ducks' 3-2 OT loss to the Arizona Coyotes in a preseason tilt. Gibson is the go-to guy in net for the Ducks, yet Bernier's an interesting potential spot-starter. He has a lot to gain in a contract year with what is currently an uncertain outlook beyond 2016-17.
Oct 2 - 12:09 AM

John Gibson made 35 saves on 38 shots in a 4-3 overtime win versus Sweden at the World Cup of Hockey on Wednesday.

He was making his first start of the tournament after Matt Murray sustained a thumb injury on Monday night. Team North America needs Finland to defeat Russia on Thursday or else they won't be in the semifinal round.
