The Carolina Hurricanes continued to resign players on Tuesday when they re-upped Nathan Gerbe for two years at $3.5 million total.
The deal will pay Nathan Gerbe $1.5 million in the 2014-2015 season and $2.0 million in the 2015-2016 season.
Nathan Gerbe tallied 31 points (16 goals, 15 assists) in 81 games played with the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2013-2014 season.
The Oxford, Michigan native played in the Carolina Hurricanes top-six forward group for a majority of the season. He played a lot of time with Jordan Staal and Patrick Dwyer on the Carolina Hurricanes’ second line.
On July 26, 2013, Nathan Gerbe signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Carolina Hurricanes that paid him $550,000 at the NHL level.
Nathan Gerbe ended up playing the entire season with the Carolina Hurricanes, and he turned into one of the biggest steals of the offseason.
If Nathan Gerbe can continue to be the heart and soul player he was last year and be an offensive threat, he will keep on being a great piece in the Carolina Hurricanes’ group of forwards.
Bill Peters said that he liked Nathan Gerbe a lot on the wing, so that made it apparent that the Carolina Hurricanes would try their best to bring him back into the fold, and that is what they did.
