John Gibson has reportedly informed the Ducks that he’s ready for a change of scenery
The Anaheim Ducks have had some very difficult and painful seasons in recent years.

Indeed, we’re a long way from the glory days of Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, Teemu Selanne and company.

Anaheim hasn’t qualified for the playoffs since 2018, five seasons in all.

While the future looks bright for this organization thanks to the arrival of players such as Trevor Zegras, Mason McTavish and Connor Bedard, the player the Ducks will draft second overall in the upcoming auction, time is starting to run out for some of the team’s veterans.

The first name that springs to mind is goaltender John Gibson.

The 29-year-old American is considered one of the best goaltenders in the National Hockey League, but unfortunately for him, he’s stuck with the Ducks.

Gibson can’t do it all on his own, and it shows in the last five seasons.

The Ducks goalie really deserves to be on a contending team.

Well, according to Frank Seravalli, Gibson could soon be released.

In fact, according to Seravalli, Gibson informed the Ducks that he was ready for a change of scenery in order to be traded to a Stanley Cup contender.

At the age of 29, it’s understandable that Gibson would rather take his chances with a team that will be competitive now than wait until the Ducks’ rebuild is complete.

In short, this summer could see the Ducks trade their number-one goaltender to a contending team in search of a solid goaltender.

What’s certain is that if Gibson really is available on the market, several teams will be very interested in his services.

It’s not every day that a goalie of Gibson’s calibre becomes available.

The American goalie’s stats aren’t impressive, but that’s because he’s playing for a mediocre team that finished last in the NHL this year.

He could really revitalize his career with a good team and once again become a goalie that everyone sees as one of the best.

So it’s a case to watch.
