Fantasy Summary

Stay at home defenseman with size and strength but little to offer points wise. Can have value in multi-category leagues


Observations

July 2023 – The Detroit Red Wings selected Gibson with the 42nd pick in the 2023 NHL Draft from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League. Injuries limited Gibson to just 45 games this past season. His offensive production did not stand out with seven goals and 21 points but that is not the strength of his game. Gibson is a big body (6-3, 200 pounds) who plays a mean, physical style. He skates well for someone his size but Gibson projects to be a bottom pairing defender, with a nasty mean streak.
