The Ducks have recalled goaltender John Gibson
from the Norfolk Admirals, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). In addition, the Ducks have placed goaltender Frederik Andersen
on injured reserve. Andersen was injured in the third period of Anaheim's game at Tampa Bay on Sunday after the crossbar struck the back of his head.
Gibson, 21 (7/14/93), has appeared in four games with the Ducks this season, posting a 2-2-0 record with one shutout, a 2.28 goals-against average (GAA) and .927 save percentage (SV%). Heading into his fifth appearance, Gibson suffered a groin injury during warmups on Nov. 2 at Colorado and missed 21 games from Nov. 2-Dec. 16. Reassigned to Norfolk on Dec. 17, the 6-3, 216-pound goaltender went 6-3-2 with one shutout, a 2.07 GAA and .935 SV% in 11 games with the Admirals.
Selected by Anaheim in the second round (39th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Gibson has a 5-2-0 record with two shutouts, a 1.86 GAA and .938 SV% in seven career NHL games with the Ducks.
Defenseman Hampus Lindholm, who left Sunday's game with an lower-body injury, is listed as questionable for tonight's game, as is forward Jakob Silfverberg, who has the flu.
