Brian Robert Gibbons (born February 26, 1988) is an American professional ice hockey Winger who is currently playing under contract to the New Jersey Devils in the National Hockey League (NHL). He has formerly played with the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Prior to turning professional, Gibbons attended the Boston College where he played four seasons with the Boston College Eagles men's ice hockey team which competes in NCAA's Division I in the Hockey East conference.
In the 2013–14 season, Gibbons received his first recall by Pittsburgh and scored his first NHL goal in his debut game on his first shot on November 18, 2013, against Viktor Fasth of the Anaheim Ducks. He scored his first power play goal on February 3, 2014, off a deflection from Olli Määttä against Craig Anderson of the Ottawa Senators.
On July 1, 2015, Gibbons signed as a free agent to a one-year, two-way contract with the New York Rangers. He was assigned by the Rangers to AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack, for the duration of the 2015–16 season, compiling 23 points in 63 games.
Unable to feature with the Rangers, Gibbons left as a free agent in the off-season. Unable to secure an NHL contract, he signed a Professional Try-out deal to attend training camp with the New Jersey Devils on September 15, 2016. He later signed a one-year AHL deal with affiliate, the Albany Devils on October 4, 2016.
