by Staff /

Goalie John Gibson and forward Nate Thompson each is day-to-day because of an upper-body injury, according to the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks play Game 1 of the Western Conference First Round against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday (10:30 p.m. ET; CNBC, TVA Sports, SN).

Gibson and Frederik Andersen split time down the stretch in goal, with each starting 10 of the Ducks' final 20 games. Each missed time earlier this season with injuries. Goalie Jason LaBarbera was recalled from Norfolk of the American Hockey League on Saturday, and on Monday, with Gibson held out, LaBarbera practiced with the Ducks, according to the Orange County Register.

Thompson had five goals and 18 points in 80 regular-season games. He averaged more than 13 minutes of ice time per game.
