Anaheim Ducks‘ 2nd round pick in the 2o11 draft (#39 overall) goaltender John Gibson(43) got the ultimate call-up in his young career when he was chosen to be the starting net minder for Team USA at the IIHF World Championships.
He helped backstop the team to a bronze medal, their first ranking in almost ten years at the competition.
Signed to a three-year entry level deal at the end of the 2012 season, the parent club elected to wait and used a first year slide based on his age.
The sizable 6’3″ 209 lbs. backstop is highly touted in a Ducks‘ system that is already very deep at the goalie position but he already looks to be capable to stealing a job in his first year with the team.
