Oilers' Gerber Removed From AHL Game On Stretcher

News: Gerber was removed from the ice on a stretcher during Wednesday's game at Oklahoma City (AHL), Ryan Aber reports.
Analysis: No word yet as to what caused Gerber's removal, but we'll await further information on what is surely a scary incident involving the veteran netminder.

Oilers Re-assign Gerber To The AHL

News: Gerber has been re-assigned to the AHL, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Gerber played well in limited playing time, but with Nikolai Khabibulin due back this weekend, it's back to the minors he goes.

Oilers' Gerber Stellar In Tuesday's Shootout Win

News: Gerber stopped 34 of 35 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win over Nashville.
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 Slated To Start Tuesday

News: Gerber is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Predators, the Oilers' official site reports.
Analysis: Gerber, who is back with the Oilers due to Nikolai Khabibulin's eye infection, will be making his first start for the team since Nov. 29. He allowed a total of three goals in his two November starts for Edmonton, both of which were wins.

Oilers' Gerber Not Happy With His Role

News: Gerber has not been happy with his role this season for Edmonton, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Gerber signed a one-year contract with the Oilers during the summer, deciding to play one more season on the NHL. He has played well for Oklahoma City of the AHL and feels he would be an asset for the Oilers or another team in search of a goaltender, but as of now he is still third on the Oilers depth chart with little chance of seeing any significant playing time.

Oilers' Recall Gerber

News: The Oilers have recalled Gerber from AHL Oklahoma City, Jeff Marek of CBS Sports reports.
Analysis: With Nikolai Khabibulin on IR due to an infection of the eye, Gerber will serve as Devan Dubnyk's backup in Edmonton.

Oilers Send Gerber to Oklahoma City

News: Gerber will be sent back to Oklahoma City on Wednesday, Dan Tencer of 630 CHED AM reports.
Analysis: With Nikolai Khabibulin healthy enough to serve as the No. 2 netminder behind Devan Dubnyk, the Oilers decided to return Gerber to the AHL after a pair of strong starts for the big club.

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.

Gerber Wins First Start for Oilers

News: Gerber stopped 35 of 37 shots to win in his Oilers debut on Thanksgiving against Colorado.
Analysis: Gerber was called up when Nikolai Khabibulin got hurt, but didn't get a chance to play until now. With Devan Dubnyk not exactly playing the part of franchise savior, Gerber may have earned himself some more starts. Of course, even if he plays well, he's still on the Oilers.

Edmonton Turns to Gerber Thursday

News: Gerber will get the tap on the pads Thursday when the Oilers take on the Avalanche, according to Oilers' Official Twitter Feed.
Analysis: It'll be his first start as an Oiler. The team is an underdog in this one as they are in most, but with only two goalies to choose from on a very mild Thursday slate, perhaps Gerber can help you.

Oilers' Call Up Gerber

News: Gerber has been recalled from AHL Oklahoma City, the Oilers' official site reports.
Analysis: Gerber is being called up due to the injury of Nikolai Khabibulin. He has played in 13 games for Oklahoma City, posting a 9-4 record with a 2.56 GAA and .911 SV%. Look for him to back up Devan Dubnyk in net, getting the occasional start.

News: Gerber cleared waivers Friday, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Gerber is purely depth in net for the Oilers. He will be assigned to Oklahoma City.

Oilers Place Gerber on Waivers

News: The Oilers placed Gerber on waivers Thursday, the Canadian Press reports.
Analysis: Gerber is currently on a one-year, two-way contract that pays him $500,00 in the NHL or $200,000 in the AHL. Other teams have until noon ET Friday to claim him.

Gerber injures neck in KHL

News: Former NHL goalie Martin Gerber sustained a spinal contusion over the weekend while playing in Russia's KHL and will likely be out for a few weeks.
Analysis: Gerber had been playing very well in the KHL before this injury with a 2.19 GAA and a 19-9-6 record, but he wasn't likely to return to North America any time soon. Continue to ignore him in all Fantasy formats.

Martin Gerber

Gerber replacing Emery in Russia

News: The Sports Xchange reports G Martin Gerber, who had hoped his strong finish with the Maple Leafs last season would net him a new contract, will now play in Russia in the KHL. He was removed from contention when the Leafs signed Swedish club G Jonas Gustavsson. Ironically, Gerber signed with Atlant Mytishchiin, who lost their goalie -- Ray Emery -- when he signed with the Flyers this offseason.
Analysis: Gerber began the 2008-09 season with the Senators and was primed to be their starting goalie. However, he got off to a slow start and eventually lost out to Alex Auld and Brian Elliott. He finished the season with Toronto. Gerber went 10-14-1 with a 3.03 GAA and .902 save percentage in 26 games last season. Gerber could be back in the NHL eventually, but it's safe to ignore him in Fantasy.

Gerber knocks off former team

News: Toronto G Martin Gerber made 37 saves against his former team and helped the Maple Leafs beat the Senators 5-2 on Saturday in the final game of the season for both clubs. With the Maple Leafs and Senators long out of playoff contention, this was no Battle of Ontario. But it was a big victory for Gerber, who started the season with Ottawa before being claimed off waivers by Toronto last month.
Analysis: Gerber took over the starting role full-time with the Maple Leafs when Vesa Toskala was lost for the season. He is not expected to have a starting job with the team when the 2009-2010 season starts. He will not likely be a player worth targeting on Draft Day 2009. The Maple Leafs TG is also a low-end option.

Martin Gerber

Gerber spectacular in win over Devils

News: Maple Leafs G Martin Gerber played a spectacular game Tuesday, making 47 saves in 4-1 defeat of the Devils. Gerber had given up 12 goals in his previous two games.
Analysis: Gerber looked more like his opposite number, Martin Brodeur, than himself on Tuesday. Don't expect another outing like this the rest of this final week from the veteran, though. Continue to ignore him in most formats. The Maple Leafs TG is also a low-end option.

Gerber gets crushed again

News: Toronto G Martin Gerber's second game since returning from a suspension was much like the first one as he got lit up by the Canadiens on Saturday this time. For the second straight game, Gerber allowed six goals, falling to the Canadiens 6-2.
Analysis: The loss drops Gerber's record on the season to 8-14-1. He has been rusty in his two starts since his return and has given up very crooked numbers. Gerber remains a No. 3 Fantasy goalie and the Maple Leafs TG is a low-end option.

4/3/2009

Martin Gerber, G, EDM Gerber lit up in return Friday

Martin Gerber

Gerber lit up in return Friday

News: Maple Leafs G Martin Gerber returned from his three-game suspension Friday against the Flyers, but it wasn't pretty in a 8-5 loss. The Flyers scored three times in a span of 4:38 to take a 3-0 lead in the first. Randy Jones got the first one on a backhander after the rebound from Daniel Briere's shot kicked right to him inside the left circle. Briere helped set up the next goal by speeding up ice and sending a perfect crossing pass to the streaking Arron Asham, who quickly pushed the puck to Claude Giroux. The rookie forward deked Gerber with a nifty fake and scored his eighth goal. Simon Gagne scored his 32nd goal on a power play, firing a slap shot from the slot through a screen. That was it for Gerber. He was replaced by Curtis Joseph after allowing three goals on nine shots. Joseph wasn't much better. He gave up two goals on five shots and returned to the bench for the start of the second period. Gerber finished the game and made 24 saves while allowing six goals.
Analysis: We have to give Gerber the benefit of the doubt Friday since he returned after taking a week off. He was certainly rusty, but since Joseph isn't a trustworthy backup, Gerber isn't in jeopardy of losing his starting job. Gerber remains a No. 3 Fantasy goalie and the Maple Leafs TG is a low-end option.

Gerber suspended three games

News: Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Martin Gerber received an automatic three-game suspension from the NHL on Wednesday for abusing referee Mike Leggo. Gerber was tossed with 56 seconds remaining in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Washington Capitals after he pushed Leggo and shot a puck in his direction. The actions violated rule 41.4, which calls for an automatic suspension. Curtis Joseph is expected to start in Gerber's absence and Justin Pogge will likely be recalled from the minors to take Gerber's roster spot.
Analysis: Gerber was upset after Brooks Laich's goal made it 2-2. The Capitals forward stuffed the puck under Gerber, prompting the Toronto goalie to protest. Gerber will miss Friday's game at Buffalo, March 28 against Boston and April 1 against Philadelphia. He's eligible to return April 3 when the Leafs visit the Flyers. We figured Gerber was going to be suspended, so this is no shocker. He is 5-3-0 with a 2.89 GAA since becoming the Maple Leafs' starting goalie. The suspension won't cost Gerber his starting job in Toronto, so he can still be considered a No. 3 Fantasy goalie when active.

Gerber tossed from Tuesday's game

News: Curtis Joseph stopped eight shots in overtime and Washington's three shootout chances after entering the game late in the third period, leading the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 victory over the Capitals on Tuesday. Joseph replaced Martin Gerber with 56 seconds left in the third period after the Toronto goalie was ejected for pushing referee Mike Leggo and shooting a puck in his direction. Gerber was upset after Brooks Laich stuffed the puck under him to tie it at 2. Alex Ovechkin scored his league-leading 51st goal but was stopped by Joseph on Washington's final shootout attempt. Joseph finished with nine saves, while Gerber had 34 while blowing a pair of one-goal leads.
Analysis: It seems inevitable that Gerber is going to face a suspension for his actions Tuesday, unless the NHL sees his actions as a misunderstanding. But highly unlikely. The suspension won't cost Gerber his starting job in Toronto, so he can still be considered a No. 3 Fantasy goalie when active. The Maple Leafs TG remains a low-end option.

Gerber wins, allows two goals

News: Toronto G Martin Gerber allowed two goals and made 26 saves against the Canadiens on Saturday. The win improves his record on the season to 8-12-1.
Analysis: Gerber continues to trade wins and losses as he has been getting the bulk of the starts with the Maple Leafs. He hasn't done much to be too impressive in net, but has worked his way to being a No. 3 Fantasy goalie and a stopgap option. The Maple Leafs TG remains a low-end option.

Gerber faces more than 40 shots

News: Toronto G Martin Gerber faced 42 shots on Thursday against the Panthers, allowing three of them to get past him in a 3-1 loss to the Panthers. He made 29 saves in the game as his record fell to 7-12-1 on the season.
Analysis: Gerber is currently trading starts with Curtis Joseph but is expected to eventually get the majority of the starts before the season ends as Vesa Toskala is on the IR. Gerber remains a No. 3 Fantasy option only while the Maple Leafs TG is a low-end option.
