From the Carolina Hurricanes:
Ron 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.
If you’re looking for an update on Aunt Bessie’s cow, or information on last summer’s harvest, look on.
If, however, you’re looking for news and information on the top minor league affiliates of the NHL’s Southeast Division clubs, you’re in the right place.
In years past, I would run News from Norfolk as a regular feature on Tampa Bay’s AHL affiliate and now, News from the Farm will feature the Charlotte Checkers, Chicago Wolves, Hershey Bears and Rochester Americans along with the Admirals, to follow the progress of the Southeast’s future stars at the AHL level (and, at least for now, Michael Nylander and Sheldon Souray too).
We’ll look at game results, standings, league and team-leading scorers and goaltenders, pick a player of the week, have a glance at the schedule ahead and keep you abreast of any other developments for these players and their clubs.
Thursday seemed as good a day as any for this weekly feature, so that’s where it will be slotted in to start (and this week, as the first installment, there’s plenty of AHL action to catch up on).
Without further delay, News from the Farm:

from Neal Rubin of the Detroit News,
Bobby Suvoy had Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and it was vicious. He’d been a boy who liked to swim and skate and catch fish, always looking for something to do. Now here he was at 16, paralyzed, with a breathing machine inflating his lungs.
Chris Terry was Bobby’s idol, his favorite hockey player. The team arranged for Terry to meet him, and it was a thrill; one of the few things Bobby could still do was smile, and he hardly stopped from the moment Terry walked in.
Then Terry dropped by the Suvoys’ house in Redford Township a few more times, on his own. And when Bobby died in early May, Terry came down from his home in Brampton, Ontario, for the funeral, driving four hours in his big green Isuzu Rodeo.
