NHL Rumors: Ducks Listening To Offers For Goaltender

According to David Pagnotta, the Anaheim Ducks are listening to offers regarding John Gibson.

The Ducks have committed to being sellers this deadline season, as they already have moved Hampus Lindholm, Josh Manson, and Nicolas Deslauriers. Fellow pending UFA, Rickard Rakell, is expected to be traded shortly, too. Yet, with this report by Pagnotta, now the possibility of Gibson being dealt is there, too. 

Any trade package to successfully acquire Gibson would need to be massive, however. The 28-year-old goaltender would be far more than a rental, as he carries a $6.4 million cap hit until the completion of the 2026-27 season. Furthermore, he also has a 10-team no-trade list, so any deal will have to involve a franchise that is not on it. 

Teams that could be interested in Gibson include the Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers, and Washington Capitals. They each could use an upgrade in net for the playoffs, so don't be surprised to hear them attempt to land Anaheim's top goaltender. This is something to keep an eye on as we get closer to 3 PM.
