Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Not on road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe (groin) isn't traveling with the team on its three-game road trip, Brian Hedger of reports.

Hedger relayed that Gerbe is expected to miss 1-to-2 weeks with a groin strain, and with sitting out the road trip, his next chance to return will be Feb. 12 against the Penguins. Ryan MacInnis figures to stay in the lineup while Gerbe sits out.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe (groin) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Canucks, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.

Gerbe missed Saturday's practice, and head coach John Tortorella said he was "nicked up." However, according to Brian Hedger of, Gerbe will miss 1-to-2 weeks with a groin strain. Ryan MacInnis will get the first crack at Gerbe's spot in the lineup.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Dealing with minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach John Tortorella, Gerbe didn't practice Saturday because he's "nicked up," Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

Gerbe's injury doesn't sound overly serious, but it leaves his status for Sunday's clash with the Canucks in doubt. If the veteran forward is unable to go, Ryan MacInnis will likely draw into the lineup Sunday.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Lands two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe agreed to a two-year, two-way extension with the Blue Jackets on Sunday.

The 32-year-old Gerbe has been a fringe NHLer for most of his career, but he's making the most of his current opportunity in Columbus, with three goals and five assists in 16 games for the big club. Gerbe will have a $500,000 AHL salary in each season, with a $700,000 NHL salary in 2020-21 and $800,000 NHL salary in 2021-22.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Garners assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe produced a helper, two shots on goal and two hits in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Golden Knights.

Gerbe started a sequence in the third period that ended with an Alexander Wennberg goal on a pass from Kevin Stenlund. That trio, which comprised the Blue Jackets' third line Saturday, combined for four points in the contest. For his part, Gerbe is up to six points, 18 shots on goal, 19 hits and a plus-2 rating in 10 appearances. He had played in just two NHL games in the previous three seasons, but the 32-year-old is showing he's still got some depth-scoring skill.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Scores in back-to-back outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe potted a goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Ducks.

Gerbe's second-period tally tied the game at two, and Zach Werenski put the Blue Jackets ahead for the first time just 1:12 later. Through eight games, Gerbe has five points, 16 shots on goal and 15 hits. That solid production could make the 32-year-old worth a look in DFS.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Nets tying goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe potted a goal on four shots and went plus-2 in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

Gerbe has excelled with four points through seven games this season. The diminutive forward has added 15 shots on goal and 14 hits in a top-six role. A two-time 30-point earner, Gerbe could be playing his way into a longer stay with the parent club even after some of their injured forwards return, although he is currently up on an emergency basis.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Summoned to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe was recalled from AHL Cleveland on an emergency basis Sunday.

The Blue Jackets forward group has been crushed by injuries, so Gerbe will provide an extra body for Monday's road game against the Islanders. The 5-foot-4 forward last appeared in the NHL during the 2017-18 campaign where he dressed in two games with Columbus. He has eight goals and 25 points with AHL Cleveland this season.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Hits waiver wire Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe was placed on waivers by the Blue Jackets on Monday, Adam Jardy of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

The 31-year-old will end up at AHL Cleveland, assuming he isn't claimed by another organization. Gerbe has 396 games of NHL experience under his belt, but only two of them have come since April of 2016.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Inks extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe penned a two-year, two-way deal with Columbus on Thursday.

Gerbe spent time in both the NHL and AHL this season, along with playing for Geneve Servette of the Swiss league. The 30-year-old was pointless in his two appearances for the Blue Jackets this year, but has tallied 13 points in 18 minor-league contests with the Monsters. Fantasy owners can probably expect Gerbe to split time between leagues during the 2017-18 campaign as well, but should get a crack at a regular spot during training camp.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Reverts to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Monday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

After going pointless and averaging just 8:36 of ice time through two games with the Blue Jackets, Gerbe's services aren't needed anymore, especially since the team just acquired center Mark Letestu in a trade with Edmonton. Gerbe, 30, has four 25-plus-point NHL seasons under his belt, but his 5-foot-5, 178-pound frame steers many clubs elsewhere with the physicality of playoffs looming.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Returning to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Wednesday, George Richards of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

The diminutive forward last played in the NHL during the 2015-16 campaign, tallying three goals and seven points in 47 games as a member of the Carolina Hurricanes. Gerbe then spent 2016-17 and part of this season with Geneve Servette of the Swiss-A league, totaling 13 goals and 35 points over 45 contests before signing with Columbus in January. It's unclear whether Gerbe will feature for the Jackets during his recall, but if he does, it'll likely come in a fourth-line role where the 2008 NCAA champion will have limited opportunities to get his name on the scoresheet.

Blue Jackets' Nathan Gerbe: Signs one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Columbus on Wednesday.

Per NHL rules, Gerbe will be placed on waivers prior to his assignment to AHL Cleveland. Through 19 games with Geneve Servette of the Swiss League, the center has notched two goals, five helpers and 85 PIM. The 30-year-old last played in the NHL during the 2015-16 campaign when he was with Carolina. It seems unlikely the Boston College product signed with the Jackets to spend the season in the minors, so don't be surprised to see him get a look with Columbus sooner rather than later.

Nathan Gerbe: Inks deal with Swiss club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe signed with Swiss league Geneve-Servette on Friday, TSN reports.

Gerbe signed a one-year deal with the Rangers on the first day of free agency this summer, but things turned sour when he refused his assignment to AHL Hartford to start the new season. The diminutive winger was then placed on unconditional waivers for the purpose of heading overseas. He collected 138 points (58 goals, 80 assists) in 394 career games between Buffalo and Carolina.

Nathan Gerbe: Waived for release
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe was placed on unconditional waivers after declining to report to AHL Hartford, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports.

Gerbe will reportedly head overseas to continue his professional career in Switzerland. The 29-year-old has seen a steady decline in production, as he managed a paltry seven points in 47 outings last season. Even if he were to be claimed off waivers and find an NHL job, the center's recent struggles should be a warning sign to fantasy owners.

Rangers' Nathan Gerbe: Waived for AHL reassignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe was placed on waivers for the purpose of reassignment to the AHL on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Gerbe signed up with New York on a one-way deal in the offseason, but couldn't find his way into a fourth-line slot on the NHL roster. His demotion (along with fellow winger Tanner Glass) seems to indicate that prospect Pavel Buchnevich is likely to start the season with the Rangers.

Rangers' Nathan Gerbe: Reaches one-year deal with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe signed a one-year, $600,000 contract with the Rangers on Friday, Sportsnet's John Shannon reports.

Gerbe is quick and provides modest utility on special teams. The Blueshirts ranked 27th in the league on the penalty kill last season, and Gerbe figures to help out in that area. His speed on the rush will lead to goals or assists every now and then, yet his small stature invites injuries. If he can stay out of the training room, expect a slight bump in fantasy value given that he's moving from a poor offensive team in Carolina to a strong one.

Hurricanes' Nathan Gerbe: NHL teams showing interest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe, a pending unrestricted free agent who plans to continue his career in North America, has drawn interest from several teams across the NHL, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.

With this report, Dreger squashes rumors that the diminutive Gerbe is headed for Switzerland. He had a forgettable 2015-16 campaign with the Hurricanes; after getting shelved for nearly two months following a lower-body injury in November, Gerbe would end up with just seven points (three goals, four assists) in 47 games. Despite having a low center of gravity due to his small stature, Gerbe lost a step in the defensive zone, as evidenced by his career-low minus-15 rating. Injuries are always going to be a concern for Gerbe, but he's hit the 31-point mark twice in his career and figures to sprinkle in some offense for any club in need of a bottom-six forward.

Hurricanes' Nathan Gerbe: Closes out season on a weak note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe finished the season with a career-low seven points in 47 games, including just three points in a 15-game span down the stretch.

Normally a very reliable 25 to 30 point player, Gerbe struggled to find his groove this season after a lower-body injury in November landed him on the IR for almost two months. Now at the end of his current two-year contract, Gerbe is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, unless the Canes decide to lock him up between now and then, which seems unlikely. Expect him to open next season in a bottom-six capacity with another team.

Hurricanes' Nathan Gerbe: Rare goal in upset win over Bruins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerbe scored his third goal of the season as the Canes shocked the Bruins 3-2 in overtime Thursday.

With just 33 games under his belt, Gerbe has frequently been a healthy scratch this season, but now seems to have found a regular spot in the lineup with six consecutive games played. Furthermore, he's now playing on the third line most nights, and is averaging roughly 15 minutes of ice time in the past five games, compared to the 6-7 minutes he was seeing previously. This raises his fantasy profile somewhat in deeper formats, but keep your expectations in check -- a big scoring surge is probably not on the horizon here.
