Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Anaheim Ducks will have yet another goaltender manning the crease for Saturday's Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals.

John Gibson, recalled from Norfolk of the American Hockey League, will make his NHL postseason debut. The 20-year-old native of Pittsburgh went 3-0-0 with a 1.33 goals-against average and one shutout for the Ducks at the tail end of the regular season.

Frederik Andersen suffered a lower-body injury in Game 3 and was replaced by Jonas Hiller, but Hiller's struggles this postseason necessitated the move to a younger backstop.

Gibson went 4-2 with a 1.45 GAA and .955 save percentage in the AHL playoffs for the Admirals.
