The Anaheim Ducks might get a peek into their future in goal soon.
The team announced the recall of goalie John Gibson from the AHL’s Norfolk Admirals. Gibson was the Ducks’ second-round pick, 39th overall, in the 2011 NHL Draft and is regarded as the future No. 1 goalie for the franchise.
Gibson is getting the call from Norfolk because Frederik Anderson is under the weather and did not travel with the team to Edmonton. He will likely be backing up starter Jonas Hiller when they face the Oilers this afternoon.
Gibson is in his first full season as a pro after spending two seasons in the OHL with the Kitchener Rangers. In 45 games with the Admirals, he’s 21-17-4 with a .919 save percentage and a 2.34 goals-against average. Gibson, a Pittsburgh native, led Team USA to a gold medal at the 2013 World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia and was named tournament MVP.
