Ducks suddenly shopping John Gibson

Published March 21, 2022 at 10:59

Now that the Ducks have committed to being sellers at this year's deadline with the trades of Josh Manson and Hampus Lindholm, one insider is suddenly reporting the team has begun listening to offers once again on the highly coveted John Gibson.

Gibson, has been the starting goalie in Anaheim since 2015, posting a .915 save percentage over 367 games played, and he's still only 28 years old. Locked in for 5 more years at $6.4M dollars, his cap hit reflects his star goaltender status, but may make him more difficult for a team to acquire.

David Pagnotta tweeted he may be available in a «significant deal» and the relevance of his 10 team no-trade-list.

Now 28 years of age with Anaheim having committed to rebuilding around the timeline of Zegras, Drysdale, and McTavish, John Gibson may be too old to fit the new contention window of the Ducks. It may make sense for the team to get a haul of a return for one the best goalies in the league.

Teams possibly looking to acquire a goaltender at the deadline today are Toronto, Edmonton, and Minnesota. Additionally, the Ducks are looking to offload winger Rickard Rakell today.
