Ducks recall goaltender Gibson

Friday, 01.10.2014 / 3:44 PM / News


The Anaheim Ducks on Friday recalled goaltender John Gibson from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals.

Gibson, a 2011 second-round pick (No. 39), is 11-9-3 with a 2.61 goals-against average and .915 save percentage in 26 games in his first full professional season.

Last season Gibson helped the United States to the bronze medal at the 2013 IIHF World Championship, posting a 1.56 GAA and .951 save percentage in five games.

That came a few months after he backstopped the U.S. to the gold medal at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship. Gibson had a tournament-leading 1.36 GAA and .955 save percentage en route to being named the tournament's best goaltender and most valuable player.

The Nashville Predators announced Friday that goaltender Pekka Rinne, limited to nine games this season due to a hip infection, has been cleared to begin weight-bearing exercises under a doctor's supervision.

"We are encouraged and pleased to report that Pekka is moving on to the next stage in his recovery and rehabilitation," the Predators said in a statement released Friday. "He has been cleared to begin weight-bearing exercises under the supervision of Dr. Thomas Byrd. There is no timetable for this stage as that will be evaluated by Dr. Byrd and our medical team on a daily basis. Our primary objective is to insure Pekka's full recovery and return to the ice by taking every possible precaution throughout the process. We will provide further updates when available."

Rinne hasn't played since Oct. 22. In his absence the Predators have used a tandem of Carter Hutton, who had one game of NHL experience prior to this season, and Marek Mazanec, in his first season playing in North America.

Yale went from tournament upstart to NCAA champions last spring, upsetting top-seeded Quinnipiac in the final of the Frozen Four to win the first national title in school history.

As defending champions, the Bulldogs have spent the season in the spotlight, one that will intensify Saturday night when they face archrival Harvard at Madison Square Garden in a matchup that will be aired nationally on NBCSN.

Coach Keith Allain sees the visit to the Garden as a unique opportunity for his players.

"We like to provide our guys with different experiences and the opportunity to play in New York City in Madison Square Garden, hopefully in front of a packed building," Allain said. "That's something that they'll remember. It allows our alums to get together. Most importantly, it should be a special experience for our guys."

Sabres name Tim Murray new general manager

BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres took their time, but they've found the man they believe will help them rebuild.

The Sabres on Thursday hired former Ottawa Senators assistant general manager Tim Murray to be their general manager. In Ottawa, he worked under GM Bryan Murray, his uncle, but the opportunity to help build a team virtually from the ground up appealed to him.

"When Bryan came to me this time and said, 'They've called and asked permission, should I grant it?' it didn't take me long to say yes," Tim Murray said. "I came from a comfortable situation. I'm from the Ottawa area, my wife and kids are there. Everybody was speculating I might be the next guy there. I don't know whether I was going to be or not, but I'm sure I would've been a candidate, and when this came, [it’s like] a blank slate. [There's] money to spend when it's the right time here to be a [salary cap] team. This was just an attractive, attractive time for me to branch out on my own and put my stamp on the game of hockey."
