Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Up to active roster again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was promoted to the active roster Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

Gibson will serve as goaltending depth for the Lightning during the playoffs. It's unlikely he sees any playing time unless Andrei Vasilevskiy is unavailable.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Back on taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was sent to the taxi squad Monday, CapFriendly reports.

Gibson allowed one goal on 23 shots in Sunday's win over the Red Wings. Barring an injury, he likely won't see any more NHL action down the stretch.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Earns first win since 2017-18
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson stopped 22 of 23 shots Sunday in a 2-1 win over the Red Wings.

Gibson was a surprise starter ahead of Andrei Vasilevskiy (undisclosed) and Curtis McElhinney, who got the nod Saturday, and he responded with his first victory since March 2018 when he was with the Islanders. The 28-year-old Gibson had made only one other appearance this season, a 5-1 loss to the Red Wings back on April 4.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Surprise starter Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson led the Lightning onto the ice and will start Sunday's game against the Red Wings, Lightning Radio reports.

Andrei Vasilevskiy (undisclosed) will sit out for the second straight game, which will give Gibson a chance to man the crease after he backed up Curtis McElhinney on Saturday. Gibson's only other start this season also came against the Red Wings. He took the loss in that one after allowing four goals on 17 shots but will look to fare better in this outing against the league-worst Detroit offense (2.17 goals per game).

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Backing up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson has been promoted to Tampa Bay's active roster and will serve as Curtis McElhinney's backup during Saturday's matchup with Detroit, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Gibson will likely return to the taxi squad prior to Sunday's rematch with the Red Wings. The 28-year-old backstop allowed four goals on just 17 shots in his lone appearance this season April 4 against Detroit.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Sent to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was assigned to Tampa Bay's taxi squad Sunday, per CapFriendly.

Gibson will likely return to the active roster for for Tuesday's clash with Columbus if Curtis McElhinney (undisclosed) is still unavailable.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Routed by Red Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson stopped 13 of 17 shots in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Red Wings.

Detroit's final goal was scored into an empty net. Gibson's Tampa debut went about as poorly as possible, and with the team not having another set of back-to-back games until April 19-20, the 28-year-old may not get an opportunity to redeem himself unless usual No. 2 netminder Curtis McElhinney (undisclosed) is sidelined a lot longer than expected.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Starting against Red Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was promoted to the active roster to make the home start against the Red Wings on Sunday, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Gibson will make his Lightning debut Sunday. The 28-year-old netminder has just 14 NHL games on his resume, posting a .904 save percentage and a 3-4-3 record in the process. The Red Wings are certainly a favorable matchup, though, as they rank last in the league with just 2.13 goals per game.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Added to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was promoted to the Lightning's taxi squad Friday.

Gibson will swap spots with Spencer Martin, who was sent to the minors in a corresponding move. Gibson hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2018-19.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was assigned to AHL Syracuse on Monday.

Spencer Martin was promoted from the minors to serve as the taxi-squad goalie for the time being. Gibson didn't play a game with the Lightning, but he figures to handle a decent workload in the AHL. Last season, he posted a .914 save percentage and a 10-8-5 record across 25 AHL appearances.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Reverts to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was reassigned to the taxi squad Tuesday, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

Gibson was on the active roster for Monday's game as the backup to Curtis McElhinney to assure a full night off for Andrei Vasilevskiy. That won't be the case Tuesday, as Vasilevskiy will start and McElhinney will back up, allowing Gibson to return to his taxi squad role. That's a position the 28-year-old Gibson will likely fill for the bulk of the season.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was promoted from the taxi squad to back up Curtis McElhinney on Monday according to CBS Sports.

Andrei Vasilevskiy was given the day off for rest, so Gibson was recalled to dress as the backup. The 28-year-old hasn't started an NHL game since the 2018-19 season and likely won't anytime soon barring an injury.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Sent to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning reassigned Gibson to their taxi squad Tuesday, TSN reports.

Gibson's demotion suggests Curtis McElhinney (COVID-19 protocols) is likely on the verge of returning to action. Gibson probably won't see NHL ice in 2020-21 unless Tampa Bay's top-two netminders both go down with an injury or an illness.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Added to NHL roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was promoted from the taxi squad to the active roster Thursday, TSN reports.

Curtis McElhinney is still in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol, so Gibson will likely serve as Andrei Vasilevskiy's backup for Saturday's clash with Columbus. The 28-year-old Finn maintained a 2.78 GAA and a .914 save percentage through 25 appearances with AHL Bridgeport last season.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: On waivers to get to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was waived Monday, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

If he clears, Gibson will likely be assigned to the taxi squad and be available should injury or illness strike the Bolts this season. He doesn't have a lot of NHL experience, as he's appeared in just 14 NHL games since turning pro in 2013-14.

Lightning's Christopher Gibson: Signed by Lightning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson penned a one-year, two-way deal with the Lightning on Friday.

Gibson was a relatively high draft pick in 2011, going 49th overall to the Kings. However, he's only made 14 NHL appearances since turning pro in 2013-14, instead spending the bulk of his career in the AHL. Through 208 games there, the 27-year-old has posted a .911 save percentage, 2.60 GAA and 105-67-33 record. Long story short: the Lightning are set in net with star Andrei Vasilevskiy and capable NHL-journeyman backup Curtis McElhinney, so Gibson figures to feature almost exclusively with AHL Syracuse.

Islanders' Christopher Gibson: Moved back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Islanders shipped Gibson back to AHL Bridgeport on Wednesday.

Gibson's reassignment indicates that Robin Lehner (upper body) will dress for Thursday's contest against the Canadiens. He made a relief appearance against the Flyers on Saturday and came up a perfect 10-for-10 in terms of saves on shots faced. He'll return to the minors to provide organizational depth behind a pair of stalwarts in Lehner and Thomas Greiss.

Islanders' Christopher Gibson: Stops 10 pucks in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson made 10 saves in relief during the third period in a 5-2 loss to the Flyers on Saturday.

It wasn't in the plans to use him, but with Thomas Greiss yielding five goals in the first two periods, coach Barry Trotz pressed Gibson into service just a few days following his emergency call-up. It was just his second NHL appearance of the season, but Gibson has a .941 save percentage, stopping 16 of 17 shots, and a 1.50 GAA this season. The 26-year-old is 3-4-3 with a 3.45 GAA and .904 save percentage in 14 career NHL games.

Islanders' Christopher Gibson: Emergency recall
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was an emergency call-up from AHL Bridgeport on Wednesday.

This move suggests that there may be a lasting injury to Robin Lehner (undisclosed), but we wouldn't make any rash lineup decisions until the team has a chance to speak on the matter. Besides, the Islanders don't play until Thursday evening. Gibson has maintained an 18-9-1 record with a 2.89 GAA and .900 save percentage through 33 games for the AHL's Sound Tigers this season.

Islanders' Christopher Gibson: Returned to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson was sent back to Bridgeport of the AHL on Sunday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Gibson was called up on an emergency basis when Robin Lehner (undisclosed) was forced to miss a couple of games due to injury. Lehner returned to the team Saturday, which mean Gibson was no longer needed. Gibson only played one game while with the team, giving up one goal on seven shots in relief of Thomas Greiss during a 6-2 loss to the Penguins on Thursday.
