John Gibson invited to Anaheim Ducks training camp

Nick Laham

An impressive performance at the 2013 World Junior Championship has earned goaltender John Gibson an invitation to attend training camp with the Anaheim Ducks.

The Anaheim Ducks will be extending an invitation to goaltending prospect John Gibson to come to the team's training camp, according to a report by Bob McKenzie of TSN on Thursday afternoon.

Training camp is expected to start on Sunday following the ratification of the new collective bargaining agreement by the NHL PLayers' Association.

This news marks another highpoint for the 19-year-old net-minder as he will be entering camp a little over a week removed from backstopping Team USA to a gold medal finish in the 2013 World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia. Posting an impressive .955 save percentage as well as a 1.36 goals against average, Gibson was named the tournament's most valuable player and clearly made a positive impression on the decision makers in Anaheim.

Originally selected with the No. 39 overall pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, the Pittsburgh native is currently playing with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League.
