Columbus assigned Gerbe to its taxi squad Tuesday.
Mikko Koivu (COVID-19 protocols) is set to make his season debut Tuesday against the Panthers, so the Blue Jackets are no longer in need of Gerbe's services up front. The 33-year-old winger picked up an assist in 9:36 of ice time in his 2020-21 debut Saturday against Tampa Bay.
Gerbe was promoted to the active roster from the taxi squad Friday.
Gerbe has been with the Blue Jackets' taxi squad for the first five games of the campaign, but he could make his season debut as soon as Saturday against Tampa Bay. The 33-year-old winger tallied 10 points in 30 games last campaign.
Gerbe was placed on waivers Monday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
The veteran winger suited up for 30 games with the Jackets last season, scoring four goals and 10 points, but he was far more productive in the same number of games with AHL Cleveland, racking up eight goals and 25 points. Assuming he clears the waiver wire, Gerbe should begin the campaign back with the Monsters.
Gerbe (undisclosed) skated without limitations during Monday's practice, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Gerbe slotted in on a line with Kevin Stenlund and Eric Robinson. Having served as a healthy scratch often last year, the 33-year-old winger looks destined for a similar fate this season.
Gerbe (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup versus Tampa Bay for Game 4 on Monday.
Gerbe served as a healthy scratch for several of the team's previous outings, so it shouldn't be a shock to see him unavailable, even if he was healthy. If he does play again this postseason, the winger is unlikely to see any significant ice time in a bottom-six role.
Gerbe (undisclosed) was deemed unfit to play and will miss Saturday's Game 3 against the Lightning.
Gerbe will miss a second straight game due to this mystery injury. Cam Atkinson (undisclosed) is also unable to play, so Emil Bemstrom and Devin Shore will continue to manage bottom-six roles. Gerbe's next chance to gear up is Monday's Game 4.
Gerbe was deemed unfit to play and will miss Thursday's Game 2 against Tampa Bay.
Gerbe has played in just two of the Jackets' six postseason contests, recording six hits, two shots and one block. With Cam Atkinson (undisclosed) also on the shelf, Columbus will inject both Emil Bemstrom and Devin Shore into the lineup Thursday. Even once healthy, Gerbe is far from a lock to make the lineup and could still find himself watching from the press box from time to time.
Gerbe (groin) joined the team for Thursday's Phase 2 skates, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Gerbe missed the last four contests prior to the league going on hiatus with what coach John Tortorella previously described as a minor injury. The winger is far from a lock for the lineup once the postseason begins and will have to beat out the likes of Kevin Stenlund or Emil Bemstrom for a spot.
Gerbe (groin) isn't traveling with the team on its three-game road trip, Brian Hedger of NHL.com 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.
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 NHL.com, 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
