No third Peter Crimmins Medal and no All-Australian selection, but the highlights kept coming for Gibson in 2016, especially a 44-possession effort against West Coast in round two, which included his first goal as a Hawk. Gibson was forced to spend more time as a key defender, but his third-man-up efforts and spoiling still came to the fore. Teams put more time into negating Gibson last year and the Hawks must find ways to release him more in 2017. Gibson will be 33 entering the season and is contracted for only this year.
