Hurricanes Sign Nathan Gerbe

RALEIGH, NC – 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 on a one-year, two-way contract. The deal will pay Gerbe $550,000 on the NHL level or $150,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of at least $250,000.

“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.
