Gibson had injury problems last year and Palazzese stepped up big time. He seems to have developed quite well in a fairly short time. This year, he has just been so damn good that they have to play him when they can.

Here's a good article on him:

Real team player. Hasn't requested a trade even though he has been vocal about wanting to win the #1 job.

He also won goalie of the month just this past November.

With all that said, I do believe he is still eligible for the draft this coming year.
