The former Boston College standout agrees to terms with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Former Boston College forward Nathan Gerbe wasn't unemployed for very long ...

Less than a month after getting waived by the Buffalo Sabres, the Carolina Hurricanes agreed to terms with the left wing on a one-year, two-way contract. The deal will pay Gerbe $550,000 if he plays in the NHL and $150,000 down in the AHL, with $250,000 in guaranteed money.

"Nathan has had success on the NHL level and should compete for a job with the Hurricanes during training camp," Hurricanes vice president of hockey operations Ron Francis in a statement announcing the signing.

The Oxford, Michigan native had five goals and five assists in 42 games for the Sabres last season. Gerbe spent his first five seasons in the NHL with the Sabres after being selected in the fifth round (No. 142) of the 2005 NHL Draft.

In five years in the League, Gerbe has 29 goals and 43 assists in 188 NHL games, and has appeared in nine Stanley Cup playoff games, totaling three goals and four points. At Boston College, Gerbe helped lead the Eagles to the 2008 National Championship, earning Frozen Four MOP honors and finishing as a Hobey Baker Award finalist. In three seasons on the Heights, Gerbe registered 71 goals and 62 assists (133 points) in 123 career games.

The diminutive winger joins former Boston College teammate John Muse, currently playing for the ECHL's Florida Everblades, in the Carolina organization.

Best of luck to Nate in Carolina!
