John Gibson said he didn’t speak to the Ducks about a trade 

Eric Stephens of The Athletic: Spoke with Anaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson and he said that he isn’t looking for a trade and said that report that he talked to the Ducks about a trade are not true.

“All of the rumors that I got in a call from Kurt yesterday are false because I haven’t had a conversation with anybody there. None of that is true.”

Gibson when asked if he wants a trade.

“No. I want to win in Anaheim. I’ve been here and I’m happy to be here.”

The 28-year-old Gibson has five years left on his deal at a $6.4 million cap hit and a 10-team no-trade clause.

Gibson may not want to move but it doesn’t mean the Ducks wouldn’t trade him. The sense is they aren’t looking to trade him and are they aren’t shopping him. The Ducks are also aware that there may be some contending teams who are interested in Gibson.

If the Ducks are able to get a huge offer for him, they have to at least consider moving him.
