Ducks prospect John Gibson wins World Juniors MVP

Jan 5, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT

Anaheim Ducks prospect John Gibson turned his World Junior Championships gold medal winning performance into a huge personal feat.

Gibson pulled off a hat trick of honors winning the tournament MVP award, the best goalie award, and a spot on the media’s all-star team. He finished the tournament with a .955 save percentage and a 1.36 goals against average.

A goalie winning tournament MVP honors is a rare feat in World Juniors. The last goalie to take home that honor was Team Canada netminder and current Blue Jackets goalie Steve Mason back in 2008. The Ducks are hoping that isn’t a an ominous omen for Gibson’s future.
