In fact, Seravalli explained on the Nasty Knuckles podcast that Gibson “wouldn’t play another game with the Ducks”. Here’s the clip in question.
According to @frank_seravalli, John Gibson reportedly requested his trade while stating “I wouldn’t play another game for the Anaheim Ducks”.

We all agree that this is big news that every sports journalist would love to reveal to the public. Except this time, it’s not true at all.
John Gibson’s agent, Kurt Overhardt of KO Sports Inc., issued a statement Monday evening, explaining that Seravalli had spread a false rumour and that Gibson remains loyal to the Anaheim Ducks.
On the other hand, I think Seravalli probably said a bit too much in trying to report the real news. Relying on the press release, we realize that Gibson’s agent doesn’t rule out the possibility that his client has requested a trade.
Seravalli’s statement that Gibson doesn’t want to play another game in Anaheim was the one too many.
You have to be careful what you say. Seravalli’s reputation has just taken a hit, and his sources may become more reluctant to give him information.
