Ducks send Gibson, five others to AHL

The Anaheim Ducks trimmed their roster to 35 players Monday night, sending six players to the Norfolk Admirals in the American Hockey League.

Among those demoted were goaltender John Gibson, the club’s second-round pick (No. 39) in 2011. Gibson went 17-9-1 with a 2.41 goals-against average and .928 save percentage in 27 games for the Kitchener Rangers in the Ontario Hockey League last season. The 20-year-old also helped the United States win the gold medal at the 2013 World Junior Championships. He had a 1.36 GAA and .955 save percentage in seven games and was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.

Also sent to Norfolk were defensemen Mat Clark, Kyle Cumiskey and Alex Grant, along with forwards Joseph Cramarossa and Stefan Noesen.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
