NHL trade rumors heat up as the Anaheim Ducks listen to offers for goaltender John Gibson. Could a change of scenery be in the cards for the veteran netminder?

The NHL offseason is fast approaching, and the goalie market is shaping up to be one of the most intriguing storylines. Anaheim Ducks general manager Pat Verbeek has confirmed that the team is listening to offers for veteran goaltender John Gibson.

NHL insider Pierre LeBrun, known for his well-placed sources, broke the news, indicating that Verbeek is open to exploring Gibson’s trade value. “John’s still a really good goalie,” Verbeek told LeBrun. “Obviously, there’s a market for goalies out there.”

Anaheim Ducks Explore Trade Options for John Gibson Amidst Goalie Market Surge

Gibson, a former All-Star and Vezina Trophy finalist has been a mainstay in Anaheim for a decade. However, his recent performance has dipped alongside the Ducks’ struggles. Could a fresh start with a contending team rejuvenate his career?

Several teams have been rumored to be in the market for goaltending upgrades. The New Jersey Devils, Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators, and Los Angeles Kings are all potential suitors. Each team presents a different opportunity for Gibson and the Ducks in a potential trade.

Ducks’ Priorities

Verbeek, who is in the midst of a rebuild, has made it clear that his priority is to acquire assets that can help the Ducks in the long term. Whether that means draft picks, prospects, or a combination of both remains to be seen.

While the Ducks are open to offers, it’s important to note that Verbeek is not actively shopping Gibson. The Ducks are content to keep him if the right deal doesn’t materialize.

A Summer of Speculation

The goalie carousel is already in motion with several rumors about goalies already making the rounds. The market for goalies like Gibson could intensify as teams finalize their rosters later this summer.

This situation will undoubtedly be one to watch in the coming weeks. Could we see John Gibson in a new jersey next season? Only time will tell.
