The Ducks have two goalies currently on injured reserve: John Gibson and Jason LaBarbera. The team announced on Nov. 4 that Gibson, who entered the season as the backup to Frederik Andersen, would miss six weeks with a groin injury. LaBarbera broke a bone in his hand, the team announced last week, and is expected to miss two or three weeks.
In November, injuries to Gibson and Andersen forced the Ducks to dress 45-year-old goalie coach Dwayne Roloson as their emergency backup.
The Ducks currently have the best record in the NHL at 18-6-5.
