John Gibson Leading The Anaheim Ducks To Their Surprising Start

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

Anaheim Ducks coach Dallas Eakins goes strong to the net when he describes his goalie John Gibson’s best attribute.

“John Gibson has a massive amount of leadership skills in him and he’s the best goalie in the game,” Eakins said.

What is indisputable is Gibson is at the top of the NHL goalie statistics in the first week of the NHL season and he’s the primary reason why the team is off to a 3-0 start.  He has stopped 98 of 101 shots for a .970 save percentage.

“I can’t imagine anything better for a team,” Eakins said. “That kid is so dialed in and the leadership is oozing out of him.”
