Ron Francis Vice President of Hockey Operations for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes today announced that the team has agreed to terms with left wing Nathan Gerbe (GUHR-bee) on a one-year two-way contract. The deal will pay Gerbe $550000 on the NHL level or $150000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level with a guarantee of at least $250000. “Nathan has had success on the NHL level and should compete for a job with the Hurricanes during training camp” said Francis. Gerbe 26 netted five goals and added five assists (10 points) in 42 games for the Buffalo Sabres in 2012-13. The Oxford MI native was also one for two in the shootout with one game-deciding tally and averaged 12:30 of ice time per game in his fifth NHL season. Selected by the Sabres in the fifth round 142nd overall in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft Gerbe (5’5” 178 lbs.) has totaled 29 goals and 43 assists (72 points) in 188 career NHL games all with Buffalo. He has appeared in nine Stanley Cup playoff games for the Sabres earning four points (3g 1a). Gerbe was honored with the Dudley (Red) Garrett Memorial Award as the AHL’s most outstanding rookie in 2009 after netting 30 goals and adding 26 assists (56 points) in 57 games during his first professional season.
