  • Kraken's Christopher Gibson: Returns to AHL

    Gibson is listed on the roster of AHL Coachella Valley.

    Joey Daccord was on the ice for Seattle's practice Monday after reportedly being returned to the minors Sunday. It may have just been a paper move.

  • Kraken's Christopher Gibson: Promoted to NHL

    Gibson was recalled from AHL Coachella Valley on Sunday, per CapFriendly.

    Gibson has posted an unsightly .722 save percentage in three AHL appearances this season. He hasn't seen any NHL action since the 2020-21 campaign.

  • Kraken's Christopher Gibson: Sent back down

    Gibson was reassigned to AHL Coachella Valley on Wednesday, Kraken radio announcer Mike Benton reports.

    Gibson was with the Kraken as goaltending depth when Martin Jones (personal) went on the non-roster list Tuesday. It appears Jones has returned to the team, so Gibson's services are no longer needed with the big club.

  • Kraken's Christopher Gibson: Recalled from AHL

    Gibson was summoned from AHL Coachella Valley on Tuesday, Bob Condor of the Kraken's official site reports.

    Gibson will be the backup goalie against Calgary because Martin Jones (personal) is unavailable. As a result, Joey Daccord will make his season debut between the pipes for the Kraken.

  • Kraken's Christopher Gibson: Snags one-year deal

    Gibson agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Seattle on Thursday.

    Gibson was with Arizona on a professional tryout during training camp but had to wait for injuries to open the door for a deal in Seattle. With both Philipp Grubauer (lower body) and Chris Driedger (knee) sidelined, the Kraken are running thin on netminders. Gibson has made one appearance for AHL Coachella Valley and will likely remain there unless another injury pops up.

  • Christopher Gibson: Released from PTO

    Gibson was released from his professional tryout with the Coyotes on Thursday.

    Considering the Coyotes have rather lackluster options in net, this doesn't bode well for Gibson's ability to find a two-way deal before the season starts. The 29-year-old may have to settle for an AHL-only deal or head overseas to find playing time in 2022-23.

  • Coyotes' Christopher Gibson: Links up with Arizona on PTO

    Gibson signed a professional tryout agreement with the Coyotes on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Gibson spent much of 2021-22 in the AHL with Charlotte, logging a 2.80 GAA and a .907 save percentage in 14 games in his lone year in the Panthers' organization. The Coyotes' goaltending group is a few notches below impressive, though he'll likely have a tough time unseating Jon Gillies as the team's presumptive backup to Karel Vejmelka heading into 2022-23.

  • Panthers' Christopher Gibson: Sent down Wednesday

    Gibson was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Wednesday.

    Gibson's time with the big club ended after Sergei Bobrovsky was cleared from an upper-body injury and served as Spencer Knight's backup Tuesday versus the Devils. The 28-year-old Gibson will remain the Panthers' No. 3 option in goal in the organization, though he shouldn't be expected to play much at the NHL level.

  • Panthers' Christopher Gibson: Promoted to NHL

    Gibson was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Friday, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    Gibson could serve as Spencer Knight's backup Saturday against the Hurricanes if Sergei Bobrovsky (upper body) isn't available. The 28-year-old owns an unsightly 4.33 GAA and .882 save percentage in four AHL appearances this season. Once Bobrovsky is healthy, Gibson will head back to the minors.

  • Panthers' Christopher Gibson: On track to start versus Dallas

    Gibson is slated to start between the pipes on the road in Wednesday's preseason game against the Stars, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Gibson is probably, at best, fourth on the Panthers' depth chart among goaltenders, so he'll almost certainly be heading to Florida's minor-league affiliate before regular-season play gets underway. The 28-year-old Finn went 1-1-0 while posting a 2.65 GAA and an .875 save percentage in two appearances with the Lightning in 2020-21.

  • Panthers' Christopher Gibson: Joins in-state rivals

    Gibson signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    Gibson spent last season with the Lightning, and he won't have to move too far after signing with the Panthers. The 28-year-old goalie has a very slim chance of winning a spot on the big club's roster -- instead, he'll likely spend the bulk of the year with AHL Charlotte unless an injury befalls Sergei Bobrovsky or Spencer Knight.

  • Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Up to active roster again

    Gibson was promoted to the active roster Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Gibson will serve as goaltending depth for the Lightning during the playoffs. It's unlikely he sees any playing time unless Andrei Vasilevskiy is unavailable.

  • Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Back on taxi squad

    Gibson was sent to the taxi squad Monday, CapFriendly reports.

    Gibson allowed one goal on 23 shots in Sunday's win over the Red Wings. Barring an injury, he likely won't see any more NHL action down the stretch.

  • Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Earns first win since 2017-18

    Gibson stopped 22 of 23 shots Sunday in a 2-1 win over the Red Wings.

    Gibson was a surprise starter ahead of Andrei Vasilevskiy (undisclosed) and Curtis McElhinney, who got the nod Saturday, and he responded with his first victory since March 2018 when he was with the Islanders. The 28-year-old Gibson had made only one other appearance this season, a 5-1 loss to the Red Wings back on April 4.

  • Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Surprise starter Sunday

    Gibson led the Lightning onto the ice and will start Sunday's game against the Red Wings, Lightning Radio reports.

    Andrei Vasilevskiy (undisclosed) will sit out for the second straight game, which will give Gibson a chance to man the crease after he backed up Curtis McElhinney on Saturday. Gibson's only other start this season also came against the Red Wings. He took the loss in that one after allowing four goals on 17 shots but will look to fare better in this outing against the league-worst Detroit offense (2.17 goals per game).

  • Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Backing up Saturday

    Gibson has been promoted to Tampa Bay's active roster and will serve as Curtis McElhinney's backup during Saturday's matchup with Detroit, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    Gibson will likely return to the taxi squad prior to Sunday's rematch with the Red Wings. The 28-year-old backstop allowed four goals on just 17 shots in his lone appearance this season April 4 against Detroit.

  • Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Sent to taxi squad

    Gibson was assigned to Tampa Bay's taxi squad Sunday, per CapFriendly.

    Gibson will likely return to the active roster for for Tuesday's clash with Columbus if Curtis McElhinney (undisclosed) is still unavailable.

  • Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Routed by Red Wings

    Gibson stopped 13 of 17 shots in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Red Wings.

    Detroit's final goal was scored into an empty net. Gibson's Tampa debut went about as poorly as possible, and with the team not having another set of back-to-back games until April 19-20, the 28-year-old may not get an opportunity to redeem himself unless usual No. 2 netminder Curtis McElhinney (undisclosed) is sidelined a lot longer than expected.

  • Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Starting against Red Wings

    Gibson was promoted to the active roster to make the home start against the Red Wings on Sunday, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    Gibson will make his Lightning debut Sunday. The 28-year-old netminder has just 14 NHL games on his resume, posting a .904 save percentage and a 3-4-3 record in the process. The Red Wings are certainly a favorable matchup, though, as they rank last in the league with just 2.13 goals per game.

  • Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Added to taxi squad

    Gibson was promoted to the Lightning's taxi squad Friday.

    Gibson will swap spots with Spencer Martin, who was sent to the minors in a corresponding move. Gibson hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2018-19.
