After parts of ten seasons in the National Hockey League with the Anaheim Ducks, John Gibson's time in California appears to be coming to a close.

According to Post Media's Bruce Garrioch, the Anaheim Ducks would like to move Gibson for salary cap reasons and 29-year-old goaltender wants to play for a contending team, as he's only appeared in 26 games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs with the organization.

Gibson was drafted by the Ducks back in the second round (39th overall) in 2011. In 431 regular season games with Anaheim, Gibson has a record of 180-179-59, a 2.83 GAA, a .912 save percentage and 24 shutouts.

The Pittsburgh native has four years remaining on his contract with a cap hit of $6.4 million and a modified no-trade clause that includes a ten team no-trade list.


Moving on from John Gibson would allow the Ducks to give the reigns in net to Anthony Stolarz before one of their younger prospect such as Lukas Dostal, Calle Clang or Olle Eriksson Ek takes over in a couple of years.
