NHL Source: Devils Fitzgerald Re-Engaging in Gibson (+)

Anaheim Ducks goaltender, John Gibson, didn’t appear on TSN’s first trade bait list of the season. However, the Ducks’ early season surge is over and in the standings, Anaheim has returned to the NHL’s basement. As the Ducks continue to navigate their way through a rebuild, Gibson is an asset that could certainly net something that adds to Anaheim’s future. Enter the New Jersey Devils who could use a boost in net and have some assets to spare. Well, Devils general manager Tom Fitzgerald is re-engaging in Gibson as a possible upgrade in net.

The recent play of Akira Schmid has been encouraging. In his last six games, the Swiss goaltender has accrued three wins, putting together a 2.62 GAA and .916 SV%. Vitek Vanecek’s last game was a bit more encouraging, too. However, the sample of his negative games far outweighs the positives.

Realistically, the Devils’ goaltending is still very much in question and could use stability.
