You have two years to sign players after they are drafted out of junior hockey, and Gibson wasn't signed after those two years. As such, he re-entered the draft. It would seem most other teams agree with the Kings, since he wasn't selected in the 2013 draft either.

Toronto eventually signed him as a UFA after the draft, after they had invited him to their rookie camp and I assume liked what they seen.

I was surprised they didn't sign him, but they obviously had fall back options in mind, considering they drafted Bartosak and signed (via Manchester) Neiderberger.
