Observations

September 2019 – Drafted in 2018, Gibson is the newest addition to the Capitals goaltending system. He is still a ways away so there is no immediate threat to Vanecek or Samsonov. Drafted out of the NAHL, Gibson was one of the top goalies in that league, posting a 0.935 save percentage, and tied the league record with 11 shut outs in 43 games. He also was stellar in the playoffs posting a 0.950 sv% in eight games as he was a top goalie again. Then 2019 in the USHL happened. Gibson again played 43 games, but posted a 0.890 sv% in the higher league. To Gibson’s credit he played on one of the worse teams in the league. He will now play for Harvard University in the NCAA where he hopes to improve his numbers and development. Pat Quinn
