The Ducks have recalled Sam Carrick from San Diego (AHL).
Carrick is a former fifth-round pick two has just one goal and one assist in 22 career NHL games. Carrick will likely serve as the Ducks extra forward with Ondrej Kase going on IR.
Gibson will start Saturday afternoon in New Jersey.
The Ducks have placed Ondrej Kase (upper-body) on IR.
Kase will not be in the lineup on Saturday and will be out into the All-Star break due to an upper-body injury. Sam Carrick was recalled rom San Diego (AHL) to take Kase’s spot on the roster.
Gibson is expected to start Saturday afternoon in New Jersey.
Kase is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
Kase was forced to leave Thursday’s game in Minnesota and is not expected to play on Saturday afternoon due to an upper-body injury. Kase has cooled off as of late, picking up just one assist in his last seven games but this would be a huge loss for a Ducks team trying to fight back into the playoff picture in the Western Conference.
Gibson will start Thursday in Minnesota.
Gibson allowed three goals on 25 shots in the Ducks loss in Detroit on Tuesday. Gibson is now 0-6-4 with a 3.37 GAA and .895 SV% in his last 11 starts and will handle the task of trying to snap Anaheim’s 12-game losing streak tonight in Minnesota. Gibson allowed five gaols on 43 shots in a 5-1 loss in his first start vs. the Wild (Nov.9).
The Ducks have assigned Patrick Eaves to San Diego (AHL) on a long-term injury conditioning loan.
Eaves has been out since November 9th and heads to San Diego on a conditioning stint to get back up to NHL speed. It is Eaves’ first AHL stint since the 2013-14 season when he was with the Red Wings.
The Ducks have reassigned Kiefer Sherwood to San Diego (AHL).
Sherwood has appeared in 46 of the Ducks 47 games this season but has just 10 points (5G / 5A). The 23-year-old will spend some time with the Gulls, where he has two goals in 12 career games.
The Ducks have reassigned Jake Dotchin to San Diego (AHL).
Dotchin was in the lineup for the last four games but will be replaced by Andrej Sustr on the active roster. The 24-year-old heads back to San Diego where he has one assist in nine games.
The Ducks recalled Andrej Sustr from San Diego (AHL).
Sustr has split his campaign between the AHL and NHL, failing to pick up a point in five games with the Ducks. During his time in San Diego, the 6-foot-7 defenseman has just two helpers in 16 games.
The Ducks recalled Max Jones from San Diego (AHL).
Jones could make his NHL debut on Thursday after recording 12 goals and 12 assists (24 points) in 32 games with San Diego. Jones is a former first-round pick (No.24 in 2016) who is part of the struggling Ducks’ roster re-tool.
The Ducks recalled Troy Terry from San Diego (AHL).
Terry started the season with the Ducks but did not register a point in six games. The 21-year-old has played very well in San Diego, scoring 16 goals and 21 assists (37 points) in 32 games. He is expected to play for Jakob Silfverberg on Thursday and should see top-9 minutes.
Silfverberg is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.
Silfverberg played just 3:44 TOI before leaving Tuesday’s game in Detroit with a lower-body injury. Silverberg is expected to miss the rest of the road-trip, so Max Jones and Troy Terry have been called-up to replace him and Ryan Kesler (lower-body).
Kesler (lower-body) was returned to Anaheim and will miss the rest of the road-trip.
Kesler played just 5:06 TOI in Detroit before leaving with a lower-body injury. Kesler will miss at least the next three games, so look for Adam Henrique to be back on the Ducks top power-play unit on Thursday. Max Jones and Troy Terry were recalled from San Diego (AHL) to replace Kesler and Jakob Silfverberg (lower-body).
The Ducks acquired Derek Grant from the Penguins for Joseph Blandisi.
Grant has scored twice with three assists (five points) in 25 games with the Penguins this season. The 28-year-old returns to Anaheim, where he had the best year of his career, scoring 12 goals with 12 assists (24 points) in 2017-18.
The Ducks acquired Michael Del Zotto from the Canucks for Luke Schenn and a 2019 seventh-round pick.
Del Zotto has played just once since December 4th and has four points (1G / 3A) in 23 games this season. Del Zotto will battle with Jacob Larsson, Andrej Sustr and Andy Welinski for playing time.
The Ducks acquired Justin Kloos from the Wild for Pontus Aberg.
Kloos has registered 12 goals and 18 assists (30 points) in 34 games with Iowa (AHL) this season. Aberg had a nice run but fell out of favour with head coach Randy Carlyle as of late, serving as a healthy scratch for four straight games. Kloos will report to San Diego (AHL) at first but could earn a call-up if the Ducks continue to struggle.
Gibson led the Ducks onto the ice for warmups.
The Ducks have acquired Devin Shore from the Stars for Andrew Cogliano.
Shore is a former second-round pick who looked like he had some offensive side after picking up 26 points (15G / 11A) in 25 AHL games in 2016. However, he has a career-high of 33 points and has registered just 17 points (5G / 12A) in 42 games this year. He could play on a line with Ryan Kesler after Cogliano was sent the other way.
Gibson will start Sunday in Winnipeg.
Gibson surrendered six goals on 35 shots in the Ducks loss to the Penguins on Friday. Gibson is now 0-5-3 with a 3.37 GAA and .898 SV% in his last nine starts as the Ducks have completely cooled off. Tonight he faces the Jets in Winnipeg—Gibson is 6-9-0 with a 2.73 GAA and .927 SV% on the road.
