Canes Agree to Terms with Nathan Gerbe
The forward scored 16 goals in his first season with Carolina.

RALEIGH, NCRon Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has signed forward Nathan Gerbe to a two-year contract. The deal will pay Gerbe $1.5 million in 2014-15, and $2 million in 2015-16.

Gerbe, 26, set or tied career highs in goals (16), power-play goals (3), points (31) and shots (221) in 2013-14, his first season with the Hurricanes. The Oxford, MI, native ranked fourth on the team in goals and seventh in points, playing in 81 of the team’s 82 games after signing as a free agent in the offseason. Gerbe played his 200th career NHL game on Oct. 28 against Pittsburgh, and notched his 100th career point with a shorthanded goal against New Jersey on March 8.

Selected by the Buffalo Sabres in the fifth round, 142nd overall, in the 2005 NHL Draft, Gerbe (5’5”, 178 lbs.) has scored 45 goals and earned 58 assists (103 points) in 269 career NHL regular-season games with Buffalo and Carolina. Gerbe has represented the United States in a number of international competitions, including the 2004 and 2005 U-18 World Junior Championships and the 2006 and 2007 World Junior Championships. Prior to turning professional, he played three seasons at Boston College, helping the Eagles capture the national championship in 2008.
