The Hurricanes reassigned Gibbons to AHL Charlotte on Thursday.
Gibbons' return to the minors leaves the Hurricanes with just 12 healthy forwards, so it could be a sign that Jordan Martinook (abdomen) will be activated ahead of Friday's game against the Ducks. Gibbons averaged fewer than 11 minutes of ice time in his two appearances and recorded only one shot on goal, so his demotion shouldn't shake up the fantasy picture in many leagues.
Gibbons was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Sunday.
Gibbons signed a two-way deal with the Hurricanes this offseason and quickly notched four points in four AHL contests to start the year. The 31-year-old forward has played 189 career NHL games and scored 19 points in 64 contests last season. He'll provide some depth with Jordan Martinook (abdomen) out for at least the next six weeks.
