Boyle led the Ducks onto the ice for warmups.

Boyle stopped all 35 shots that he faced in the Ducks shutout win over the Canucks on Wednesday. It was an impressive first career start for Boyle, who has posted impressive AHL numbers throughout his career. Boyle has now stopped 59 of 61 shots (.967 SV%) since being called-up.

The Ducks have played John Gibson (head/neck) on IR.

Ducks’ interim head coach and GM Bob Murray said that Gibson was moved to IR after being “whacked a whole bunch on one play” and is just “not right anywhere up there.” The Ducks are also without Chad Johnson right now, so Ryan Miller will return as the backup for Kevin Boyle, who will be making his NHL debut.

Boyle will make his first career NHL start on Wednesday.

Boyle allowed two goals on 26 shots after replacing Chad Johnson in the Ducks 6-2 loss in Philadelphia last Saturday. The 26-year-old was 19-7-0 with a 2.72 GAA and .909 SV% in 30 games with San Diego (AHL) before being called-up. Tonight he faces a Canucks team that has lost four of their last five games while being outscored 19-to-11.

Gibson suffered and undisclosed injury Thursday in Ottawa.

Gibson was crunched in a collision with his teammate Jaycob Megna late in the second period. Gibson remained in goal for the final 1:52 of the period but was replaced by Chad Johnson for the third. The way the Ducks are playing right now, Gibson isn’t a good option regardless. Consider him questionable for Saturday’s game in Philadelphia.

Gibson will start Thursday in Ottawa.

Gibson allowed five goals on 35 shots in the Ducks loss in Toronto on Monday. Gibson is in the middle of a very difficult stretch, allowing a combined 16 goals on 80 shots (.800 SV%) in his last three games. The Ducks don’t seem to care anymore but Gibson has a chance to get back on-track tonight. He draws a great matchup in Ottawa, vs. a Sens team that played last night.

The Ducks have recalled Andy Welinski from San Diego (AHL).

Welinski, 25, has split his 2018-19 season right down the middle, playing 19 NHL games and 18 AHL games. With Korbinian Holzer returning to Germany for a family matter, Welinski has been called up and is expected to play on Thursday. The former third-round pick has two assists with the Ducks this year and four assists in 26 career NHL games overall.

Gibson led the Ducks onto the ice for warmups.

Gibson was pulled after allowing six goals on 14 shots in the Ducks 9-3 loss in Winnipeg on Saturday. Gibson is doing his best behind a lacklustre Ducks team and things may get even worse in Toronto tonight. After November, Gibson was 9-8-4 with a 2.54 GAA (14th in the NHL) and a .927 SV% (t-5th). Since then he is 7-9-2 with a 3.31 GAA (42nd) and .899 SV% (33rd).
