The 25-year-old Gibson went 31-18-7 last season. He also had a 2.43 goals against average and a .926 save percentage.

“I believe in John Gibson, as does everyone in the organization,” said Executive Vice President and General Manager Bob Murray. “This is obviously a major commitment by the club, but one we feel strongly about. John is equally committed to being a Duck. He is only now entering the prime of his career, and we are all confident his best is yet to come.”

Gibson was a second-round draft pick by the Ducks during the 2011 NHL Draft. He was the 39th overall selection.

He is now signed through the 2026-27 season. From 2014 through 2018, he appeared in 178 games, including 171 starts.

He went 93-55 in these games.

He also had a 2.29 goals against average and a .923 save percentage. He also had 16 shutouts.

“I’m excited to be a part of this organization for the long term,” said Gibson. “Staying with the Ducks was always my preference, and I couldn’t be happier. Living in the Orange County community with the great support of our fans, I can’t think of a better place to play. It’s great to be a part of the future of this team moving forward and hopefully bring a Stanley Cup back to Anaheim.”
