The Kitchener Rangers goalie is expected to make his first start in about two months when the club takes on the Saginaw Spirit Friday at the Aud, according to team GM/coach Steve Spott.
Gibosn hasn't played since Jan. 19th in Barrie. The Pittsburgh native has been rehabbing a groin/hip injury since that game but is ready to return.
The timing couldn't be better. The Rangers have five games left in the season until the playoffs begin.
Goalie Joel Vienneau has held his own during Gibson's absence but has allowed 10 goals in the past two games after starting the last 15 consecutive contests for the Rangers.
Gibson has played just 23 games for Kitchener this season, going 15-8 with a 2.41 goals against average and a .927 save percentage.
The 19-year-old Anaheim Ducks draft pick led the United States to a gold medal at the world junior hockey championships in early January.
