Arizona Coyotes Release Goalie from PTO

The Arizona Coyotes have released Christopher Gibson from his PTO.

This news comes shortly after the Coyotes claimed fellow goaltender Jonas Johansson off waivers. This decision made an unsigned Gibson expendable, and now he will be aiming to find a new home elsehere before the start of the regular season - whether that is in North America or overseas.

Gibson has 16 career NHL games on his resume over four seasons. During them, he put together a 4-5-3 record, 3.33 GAA, and .901 SV%. Teams in need of some goaltending depth in the AHL could give the 29-year-old a call, so it will be intriguing to see if the Finnish netminder can find a new home from here.
