But, there is a dirty little rumor going around the Aud that the Ducks have, or may yet shut him down until September. The concern is that he's been battling this hip pointer injury off and on since his 1st training camp with the team last year and it keeps creeping back.
There is speculation that the Ducks aren't that happy with this and wonder if the Ranger medical staff continues to rush him back too early, or that Gibson has rushed himself back early (WJC for example), and also may have been playing with the injury from time to time over the last two seasons at the team's urging. The Ducks want this problem gone and it's rumored that they have taken over calling the shots in regards to when or if he plays this season.
It's wait and see I guess. Check back in a few weeks. The regular season ends March 17th with the playoffs probably starting the following Friday.
