Pending UFA Nathan Gerbe is discussing a contract with Geneve-Servette of the Swiss NLA, reports Cyrill Pasche of Le Matin (link in French). Any deal would contain an NHL out clause if Gerbe is able to secure an NHL contract prior to July 15th. Fox Sports Midwest’s Andy Strickland reports that securing an NHL contract is still the priority for Gerbe and his representation.
Gerbe has spent the last three seasons with the Carolina Hurricanes, playing all three forward positions for them in the process. He’s most known for his small stature as at just 5’5″, Gerbe has been the smallest player in the NHL the past several years.
Last season, Gerbe suited up in just 47 games with the ’Canes, scoring just seven points (three goals, four assists) in the process. His career numbers are better as he has posted 58 goals and 80 assists in 394 career regular season games.
