    Analysis: Don't look now, but Gerber is now 3-0-0 in his first three starts with Edmonton. He's still not much of a fantasy option, but considering the goaltending situation in Edmonton right now, he's going to continue to get playing time.

  • Gerber Strong in Oilers Win

    News: Gerber won his second straight start with a 22-save effort Monday against Ottawa.
    Analysis: Gerber's recently arrived in northern Alberta and has won his first two starts with the Oil. If you're in a pinch for goaltending, he's still a risky play considering his team, but he's playing his way into more starts with several goaltenders nicked up and playing inconsistently.
  • Oilers' Gerber to Face Senators Monday

    News: Gerber will start against the Senators on Monday, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Edmonton Sun.
    Analysis: The Oilers are desperate for solid goaltending, and Gerber did a fine job in his debut against the Avs on Saturday, stopping 35 of 37 shots for the win. With Nikolai Khabibulin on the shelf with a sore groin, Gerber will likely continue to get the majority of starts over the forseeable future, since fellow backup Devan Dubnyk has proven to be somewhat unreliable thus far. At the end of the day, however, it's probably wise to stay away from any and all Edmonton goalies for fantasy purposes, as they are all considered to be extremely high-risk.
