Description: Ducks goalie John Gibson is expected to finish the season in the AHL once he returns from injury according to Pro Hockey Talk.
Insight: Ilya Brygalov is now Frederik Andersen's backup, so Gibson will receive more experience playing in Norfolk. He is 2-2 with a .927 save percentage and 2.28 GAA in four games this season.

Description: Ducks goalie John Gibson (2-2, 2.28 GAA, 0.927 SV%) has injured his groin and been placed on injured reserve.
Insight: He is expected to miss about six weeks. Gibson had allowed just two goals in his last three games and was starting to put pressure on starter Frederik Andersen for more playing time.

Description: Ducks goalie John Gibson shutout the Blackhawks on Tuesday, stopping all 38 shots he faced, for his first shutout of the season.
Insight: Gibson allowed six goals in the season opener against Pittsburgh, but voluntarily went down to the minors to work on a few things. Apparently he fixed the problems. Gibson is a must-add in all standard formats.

Description: Ducks goalie John Gibson will start on Tuesday against the Blackhawks.
Insight: This is Gibson's second start in three games. He stopped 16-of-17 shots in a victory over Columbus on Friday. If you need a streaming goalie on Tuesday, Gibson is your guy.

Description: Ducks goalie John Gibson started his first game since opening night and performed pretty well.
Insight: Gibson allowed six goals to the Penguins on Oct. 9, and he hadn't started since because fellow goal Frederik Andersen was playing so well. Gibson allowed one goal on 17 shots on Friday.

Description: Ducks goalie John Gibson will start on Friday against the Blue Jackets according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: Gibson started opening night and allowed six goals to the Penguins. Frederik Andersen took over in net and has won his last six starts. During that time, Gibson asked to be sent to the minors to get a few starts to stay fresh, so we do not expect him to at all be rusty on Friday.

Description: Ducks 20-year-old goaltender John Gibson has saved 67 of 70 shots in the last two games against the Kings. Anaheim won both games and leads 3-2 in its second-round series against Los Angeles.
Insight: Gibson made three appearances with the Ducks all season and was starting for Anaheim's AHL team just last week, but the team needed a starting goalie after Frederik Andersen suffered a lower-body injury. Gibson had a shutout Saturday and saved 39 of 42 shots in a 4-3 win Monday night.

Description: The Anaheim Ducks are starting 20-year-old John Gibson in net at Los Angeles in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals Saturday night after Frederik Andersen suffered a lower-body injury in Game 3.
Insight: The Ducks lost all confidence in Jonas Hiller after he was shelled in March and April. Gibson was the top North American goalie available in the 2011 NHL Draft and was selected 39th overall by Anaheim. He had a .919 SV% in the regular season and a .955 SV% in the postseason for Norfolk of the AHL this season, and now he'll be thrown into the fire of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with the Ducks down 2-1.
