It was a difficult year for Gibson, as his GAA topped the 3.00 mark for the first time in his career. In addition, the netminder posted a personal worst .904 save percentage.

The American netminder had a rough go of it in 2019-20, as the aforementioned ratios were by far the worst of his six full years in the NHL and well behind his career-average 2.53 GAA and .918 save percentage. It's well documented that the Ducks are a work in progress as one of the league's (current) worst teams, but that does little to ease the sting for Gibson owners, who saw their guy make the fifth most starts in the NHL but give up too many goals to provide solid fantasy value.
