Andersen Day-to-Day (Leg Tightness), Gibson Out Six Weeks (Groin), Bobkov Recalled from Norfolk (AHL)

by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks

Goaltender Frederik Andersen remains day-to-day with leg tightness. Andersen, 25, became the first goaltender in NHL history to win 26 of his first 31 decisions (26-5-0) with a 4-1 victory on October 22 vs. Buffalo. Andersen, who won his first six starts (6-0-0) to match a career high (last: Oct. 20-Nov. 4, 2013), currently leads NHL goaltenders in goals-against average (1.60) and save percentage (.941), and is tied for second in wins (7). During his six-game win streak, Andersen posted a career-high scoreless streak of 152 minutes and 46 seconds (spanning three games) from October 17-22.

Goaltender John Gibson will be out of the lineup approximately six weeks with a groin injury. Gibson suffered the injury during pregame warm ups prior to Anaheim's road game at Colorado on November 2. The 21-year-old netminder is on injured reserve. Gibson is 2-2-0 with a 2.28 GAA, .927 SV% and one shutout.

In addition, the Ducks have recalled goaltender Igor Bobkov from the Norfolk Admirals, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Bobkov, 23 (1/2/91), has posted a 20-23-2 record with two shutouts, a 3.05 goals-against average (GAA) and a .905 save percentage in 46 career AHL games with Norfolk and Syracuse. Bobkov split the 2013-14 season between Norfolk and Utah (ECHL), going a combined 22-11-5 with two shutouts, a 2.13 GAA and a .920 SV%. The 6-6, 238-pound goaltender ranked second among ECHL netminders in GAA (2.04) and fifth in SV% (.921), while also earning ECHL Goaltender of the Month honors for February and March.

Selected by Anaheim in the third round (76th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Bobkov has yet to make his NHL debut. The Surgut, Russia native helped lead Team Russia to gold at the 2011 IIHF World Junior Championship by stopping all 20 shots faced in relief en route to a 5-3 win over Canada on Jan. 5, 2011. Bobkov has also represented Russia at the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship and the 2009 Under-18 World Championship.
