The Hurricanes placed Bibeau on waivers Friday, TSN.ca reports.
With Petr Mrazek and James Reimer both ahead of him on the Canes' depth chart, Bibeau will likely spend the season in the AHL. The 26-year-old netminder has seen limited action in the NHL, with just three games under his belt over the last three seasons.
Bibeau signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Hurricanes on Thursday.
Bibeau split time between the AHL and NHL with Colorado in 2019-20, posting a .765 save percentage and 6.02 GAA in two minor-league appearances and a .881 save percentage and 3.27 GAA in two games with the big club. He'll likely spend the entirety of the 2020-21 season with AHL Charlotte.
The Avalanche assigned Bibeau to AHL Colorado on Tuesday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Since both Philipp Grubauer (lower body) and Pavel Francouz (concussion) are returning from injury for Tuesday's matchup against the Flames, Bibeau's services are no longer needed at the top level. While with the big club, the 25-year-old made his first NHL start since the 2016-17 campaign, recording a win despite an .875 save percentage.
Bibeau stopped 28 of 32 shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canucks.
Bibeau allowed goals to Alexander Edler and Brock Boeser late in the third period, but he was bailed out in overtime with a Nathan MacKinnon tally. The 25-year-old goalie has allowed five goals in about one-and-a-half games. The win was his first since the 2016-17 campaign, when Bibeau was a Maple Leaf. He'll continue to split time with Adam Werner while Philipp Grubauer (lower body) and Pavel Francouz (concussion) are sidelined.
According to Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic, Bibeau was the first netminder off the ice at morning skate, which suggests he'll get the start in goal in Saturday's road clash with the Canucks.
Bibeau saw his first action of the season in relief of Adam Werner in Thursday's 6-2 loss to Edmonton, stopping nine of the 10 shots he faced. The 25-year-old rookie will attempt to pick up his first win as a member of the Avalanche in a tough road matchup with a Vancouver team that's averaging 4.00 goals per game at home this campaign, second in the NHL.
Bibeau relieved Adam Werner in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Oilers, allowing a goal on 10 shots.
Fresh off being called up from AHL Colorado, Bibeau got his first taste of NHL action since 2016 and made nine saves in a relief appearance. With both Philipp Grubauer (lower body) and Pavel Francouz (head) sidelined, the 25-year-old figures to see some action at the top level in the coming weeks. However, Bibeau does not belong on your fantasy roster.
The Avalanche recalled Bibeau from AHL Colorado on Wednesday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
The injuries are stacking up in Colorado's crease, as Philipp Grubauer (lower body) is on IR and Pavel Francouz (head) may face an extended absence. Grubauer may be ready for Thursday's game against the Oilers, otherwise, Adam Werner -- who stopped 40 shots in relief of Francouz on Tuesday -- figures to start. Bibeau played 35 games for AHL San Jose last year, recording a .904 save percentage and 2.89 GAA.
Bibeau was acquired by Colorado from San Jose on Friday in exchange for Nicolas Meloche.
Colorado was surprisingly thin in goal, so adding a second AHL netminder was no doubt a priority ahead of the 2019-20 season. Bibeau figures to split duties with Adam Werner in the minors and could be in contention for a promotion should the Avalanche pick up an injury during the year.
Bibeau was demoted to AHL San Jose on Monday, TSN reports.
Bibeau will likely see himself moving up and down for as long as the Sharks and Barracuda are in the playoffs in order to serve as an emergency goaltender. The Quebec native went 16-18-3 with a .904 save percentage in 35 minor-league appearances this season. With both Martin Jones and Aaron Dell under contract next season, Bibeau figures to spend another year developing in the AHL.
Bibeau was waived by San Jose on Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Bibeau will begin the year in AHL Ontario after posting a 23-14-2 record with the Kings' minor-league affiliate a season ago. The 24-year-old appears destined for a career in the minors, seemingly unable to crack an NHL lineup since being drafted back in 2013. He could see NHL action in 2018-19 if the injury bug creeps into Los Angeles' crease.
Bibeau gave up two goals on nine shots in Tuesday's 7-5 preseason loss to the Flames.
Calgary scored four goals against Aaron Dell, two against Bibeau and one into an empty net at the end. Despite Dell's struggles this preseason, Bibeau isn't a threat to steal the backup job behind Martin Jones.
Bibeau stopped 21 of 22 shots in the Sharks' 4-1 victory over Anaheim on Tuesday.
Bibeau, 24, spent last season with AHL San Jose, appearing in 43 games and posting a 23-14-2 record. It's unlikely he cracks the Opening Night roster and more than likely will be tasked with AHL duty to begin the 2018-19 season. Bibeau will need to impress in camp to have any shot at making the big club. His last NHL action came in 2016-17, as a member of the Maple Leafs.
Bibeau signed a two-year contract extension with the Sharks on Tuesday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
Bibeau finally surfaced at the NHL level during the 2016-17 campaign, posting a 1.99 GAA and a .927 save percentage in an extremely limited sample size. Despite weak number with the AHL Marlies last season (3.08 GAA, .894 save percentage), the 23-year-old has seemingly come into his own after changing organizations in the offseason, posing an 18-11-1 record with a 2.09 GAA and .928 save percentage with AHL San Jose in 2017-18. Continued success could eventually get him another look at the NHL level, but the Sharks still have a couple of netminders under contract for the future in Martin Jones and Aaron Dell.
The Sharks reassigned Bibeau to AHL San Jose on Thursday.
Bibeau's demotion indicates starting netminder Martin Jones (undisclosed) will likely be available for Friday's matchup with the Panthers. The 23-year-old Bibeau will likely remain in the minors unless the Sharks are once again in need of reinforcements at goaltender due to injury later this season.
Bibeau was called up from the minors under emergency conditions Monday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Bibeau will join the Sharks on their trip to Philadelphia in the event Martin Jones (undisclosed) is unable to suit up. The 23-year-old Bibeau will almost certainly serve as the backup to Aaron Dell if he does crack the lineup in Jones's absence. In the minors, the sixth-round pick has posted a 5-3-0 record and .925 save percentage.
Bibeau received a one-year, two-way contract from the Sharks on Saturday.
Bibeau, who spent the majority of 2016-17 with AHL Toronto, could make a push for the backup role behind Martin Jones, but is likely facing an uphill battle to unseat Aaron Dell as the No. 2. In his two-game stint in the NHL last year, the 23-year-old went 1-1 with an impressive 1.99 GAA.
Bibeau was not extended a qualifying offer by the Maple Leafs and thus will become an unrestricted free agent, Sportsnet reports.
This bit of news ahead of the start of free agency won't make any fantasy shockwaves since Bibeau has only suited up for two games of NHL action in his first three professional seasons. The 2013 sixth-rounder will be free to sign with the organization of his choice starting on July 1.
Bibeau was sent to AHL Toronto on Sunday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.
The youngster was a part of a swap as Jhonas Enroth was called up. Bibeau looked solid in his one appearance in his brief stint, stopping 25 of 27 shots. The team likely wanted the 22-year-old to get a bit more work in the minors to continue his development, but he could find his way back to the NHL later in the year.
Bibeau stopped 25 of 27 shots to beat the Lightning in overtime Thursday.
Bibeau notched his first NHL win in his second career start. The 22-year-old rookie has allowed only four goals on 55 shots faced, but isn't a danger to starter Frederik Andersen's playing time at the moment.
Bibeau will make his second NHL start Thursday in Tampa Bay, Kristen Shilton of TSN reports.
Bibeau looked strong in his first career start earlier this season when he stopped 26 out of 28 shots against the Avalanche, although he was unable to come away with the win. If he can get some offensive support, the rookie will have a good chance to get his first career victory against a Lightning team that is dealing with numerous injuries to its offensive corps at the moment.
