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 reassigned goaltender Frederik Andersen to Norfolk.

Gibson, 20 (7/14/93), went 11-9-3 with two shutouts, a 2.61 goals-against average (GAA) and a .915 save percentage (SV%) in 26 games with Norfolk. Gibson co-led AHL goaltenders in saves (700) and appearances, and also ranked tied for second among rookie netminders in shutouts, third in wins and SV%, and fifth in GAA. He was named the CCM/AHL Goaltender of the Month for October after going 3-1-2 with a 1.44 GAA and .953 SV% in six appearances.

Selected by Anaheim in the second round (39th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Gibson was USA Hockey’s recipient of the 2013 Bob Johnson Award, which recognizes excellence in international hockey competition during a specific season of play. He backstopped Team USA to the gold medal at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship in Russia, posting a 5-0-2 record and was selected Most Valuable Player of the championship. In addition, Gibson became the first United States goaltender and second American overall to win the award (Zach Parise in 2004), and the first goaltender overall since Steve Mason (Canada) in 2008. Gibson also received the Directorate Award as the tournament’s best goaltender, was selected to the Media All-Star team and was named one of Team USA’s best three players of the tournament.

Andersen, 24 (10/2/89), posted a 10-2-0 record with a 2.07 GAA and .923 SV% in 12 games (11 starts) with Anaheim this season. Among rookie NHL goaltenders, he ranked second in wins and GAA, third in SV%, and tied for fourth appearances and starts (min. 10 appearances).

“Freddy has just been sitting too much,” Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. “He needs to play, and Gibson has also been playing well. He’s shown me a lot with the way he’s played this season.”

Selected by Anaheim in the third round (87th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Andersen has gone 2-0-0 with a 0.96 GAA and .971 SV% in two games with Norfolk this season. The Herning, Denmark native has appeared in 49 career AHL games with Norfolk, going 26-18-1 with five shutouts, a 2.14 GAA and .931 SV%.
