      Analysis: Brian Gibbons split his season roughly evenly between AHL Springfield and the Blue Jackets in 2014-15, playing in 26 games at the former and 25 at the latter. He likely wouldn't have seen as much frequent action with the Blue Jackets had the team not dealt with an array of injuries, so it could be tougher to him to break through the deep Rangers forward ranks.

      News: Brian Gibbons was sent back to Springfield of the AHL on Saturday.
      Analysis: Brian Gibbons has bounced back and forth between Springfield and Columbus a few times this season, and he was most recently recalled at the end of February. The 26-year-old has registered three goals and six assists in 10 AHL games this season.

      Analysis: Brian Gibbons has been recovering from a knee injury and has been out of action since the middle of December, but has been nearing a return to action.
