Ducks sign Jason LaBarbera

New, comments

Ducks pick up a veteran goalie to support their rookie tandem.

Derek Leung

The Ducks goalie tandem of Frederik Andersen and John Gibson are going have a combined 42 regular season and playoff games between them. The next goalie in the chain is Igor Bobkov, who has never started a game in the NHL. So, the Ducks went out and got a veteran goalie in the form of Jason LaBarbera.

LaBarbera is a bit of a journeyman. He's stopped pucks for the Rangers, Kings, Coyotes and Oilers before coming to ply his trade in Anaheim. Last year in Edmonton, he played in 7 games posting a 3.28 GAA AND .870 SV%. The majority of his games came for the Rockford Icehogs in the AHL where he recorded a 2.94 GAA and .901 SV%. NHL.com didn't have his AHL numbers after 06-07; the AHL numbers in this article are from hockeydb.com

Per Bob Murray's comments from just over a week ago at the Ducks' open house, we should expect to see Gibson and Andersen in the NHL unless someone has a serious step back or an injury.  And so it would appear that the Norfolk Admirals will be working with a tandem of Bobkov and LaBarbera or vice versa.
