Hurricanes sign winger Nathan Gerbe

Posted July 26, 2013

The Carolina Hurricanes have signed left winger Nathan Gerbe to one-year, two-way deal, the team announced Friday.

Gerbe, who recorded five goals and five assists in 42 games for the Buffalo Sabres last season, will earn $550,000 if he plays on the NHL team or $150,000 if he plays in the AHL next season. He received a guarantee of $250,000.

The 5-foot-5, 26-year-old was selected by the Sabres in the fifth round (142nd overall) of the 2005 NHL Draft. In five seasons, he played 188 games totaling 29 goals and 43 assists (72 points) with a plus/minus of 14.

In the 2008-09 season with AHL’s Portland Pirates, Gerbe won the Dudley “Red” Garrett Memorial Award after recording 30 goals and 26 assists in 57 games.

The Oxford, MI, native played three seasons at Boston College, where he lead the nation in goals (35) and points (68) during his junior season. Gerbe, the USA Hockey’s National College Player of the Year and finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, lead the Eagles to the 2008 NCAA championship. He earned Most Outstanding Player at the Frozen Four after recording eight points, five goals and three assists in two games.

Gerbe was member of the United States hockey team in a number of international competitions including the 2004 and 2005 World Under-18 Championships and the 2006 and 2007 World Junior Championships.

    This will save some money since Chad was not resigned, add depth at AHL level AND give us a player that has NHL experience when needed. Good move by Canes.

    Doesn't really matter much. Until the Canes get rid of Cam Ward, they will be mediocre at best.

  • Willie_11 Jul 26, 2013

    The Canes essentially was rid of Cam Ward last season and subsequently tanked.

    Hey HPX, just tell me who are you going to replace Ward with. Unless there is someone that is NHL ready and a number 1 goalie, I'd say the Canes have a pretty good goalie. If the team plays better in front of him instead of hanging him out to stop 2 on 1's and such, he is a very good goalie.

    "If the team plays better in front of him instead of hanging him out to stop 2 on 1's and such, he is a very good goalie." ... same excuse, different coach, different defense, different forwards... same goalie. You are welcome to be a Cam Ward fan, what he did in the Cup run was pretty special. That has been a long time ago however, and since then, this team just hasn't really done anything. 3 coaches later, and several players later, the only variable in the equation that remains constant is Cam Ward. You could be right though, every other player or coach in the NHL could just be rubbish...

    Wow, you are absolutely clueless. The Canes have 99 problems, but Cam Ward ain't 1.

    Totally agree! Cam has been left out to dry way too often.

  • bluedvlrob Jul 26, 2013

    Any goalie is only as good as the team is in front of him. Look at the playoff teams .Put Ward on the Bruins,Blackhawks, or on a team willing to spend top dollar on a top line player not named Staal then you would see a huge difference. I get frustrated at the soft goals and the overtime loses that Ward gives up but he's expected to stand on his head and steal games every night because the team in front of him is JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH, THEY ARE SOOOOFT!

    cam was not the problem. The defense in front of him was.

  • hsiflee Jul 26, 2013
