Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- John Gibson
John Gibson was born on July 14, 1993 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The product of the USA Hockey National Team Development Program and the OHLís Kitchener Rangers was drafted in the second round, 39th overall, by the Anaheim Ducks in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Gibsonís time in Kitchener is highlighted by a run to the OHL Semi-Finals in 2012. After his time in the OHL was over, he would be assigned to the Ducksí AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals. He would spend most of the 2013-14 season in the AHL until the Ducks would promote him to the NHL level near the end of the season. In his NHL debut on April 7, 2014, Gibson would become the youngest NHL goaltender to record a shutout when he beat the Vancouver Canucks with a 3-0 score.

In the playoffs when both goaltenders Jonas Hiller and Frederik Andersen faltered, Gibson would make his first career post-season start in a 2-0 shutout victory over the Los Angeles Kings Game 4 of the second round. Gibson would start the rest of the series where they would eventually lose to the Kings 6-2 in Game 7.

For the 2014-15 season, Gibson would play for the Ducks the entire year where he would share the net with Frederik Anderssen. He would appear in 23 games posting a 13-8-0 record, however Andersen would take the mantle of the starting goaltender for the playoffs.

Gibson would start the 2015-16 season back in the AHL, now with the San Diego Gulls. However, with Anderssen out with the flu, Gibson would be promoted back to the NHL where he would post a 4-4-1 record. Upon Anderssen's return, Gibson would continue to make the majority of the starts. His strong play continued and he would make his first NHL All-Star Game appearance in 2016.

On the international stage, Gibson has represented the United States numerous times which is highlighted by a gold medal performance at the 2013 World Junior Championship. In that tournament Gibson would be named the tournament MVP, Best Goaltender, and a member of the All-Star Team.
