Gerbe was placed on waivers by the Blue Jackets on Monday, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

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 2015-16.

Gerbe penned a two-year, two-way deal with Columbus on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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 they just acquired center Mark Letestu in a trade from Edmonton. Gerbe, 30, has four 25-point NHL seasons under his belt, but his 5-foot-5, 178-pound stature 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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Gerbe agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Columbus on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Per NHL rules, Gerbe will be placed on waivers prior to his assignment to AHL Cleveland. Through 19 games with Geneve Servette of the Swiss League, the center has notched two goals, five helpers and 85 PIM. The 30-year-old last played in the NHL during the 2015-16 campaign when he was with Carolina. It seems unlikely the Boston College product signed with the Jackets to spend the season in the minors, so don't be surprised to see him get a look with Columbus sooner rather than later.

Gerbe signed with Swiss league Geneve-Servette on Friday, TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gerbe signed a one-year deal with the Rangers on the first day of free agency this summer, but things turned sour when he refused his assignment to AHL Hartford to start the new season. The diminutive winger was then placed on unconditional waivers for the purpose of heading overseas. He collected 138 points (58 goals, 80 assists) in 394 career games between Buffalo and Carolina.

Gerbe was placed on unconditional waivers after declining to report to AHL Hartford, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gerbe will reportedly head overseas to continue his professional career in Switzerland. The 29-year-old has seen a steady decline in production, as he managed a paltry seven points in 47 outings last season. Even if he were to be claimed of waivers, the center's recent struggles should be a warning sign to fantasy owners.

Gerbe was placed on waivers for the purpose of reassignment to the AHL on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gerbe signed up with New York on a one-way deal in the offseason, but couldn't find his way into a fourth-line slot on the NHL roster. His demotion (along with fellow winger Tanner Glass) seems to indicate that prospect Pavel Buchnevich is likely to start the season with the Rangers.

Gerbe signed a one-year, $600,000 contract with the Rangers on Friday, Sportsnet's John Shannon reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gerbe is quick and provides modest utility on special teams. The Blueshirts ranked 27th in the league on the penalty kill last season, and Gerbe figures to help out in that area. His speed on the rush will lead to goals or assists every now and then, yet his small stature invites injuries. If he can stay out of the training room, expect slight bump in fantasy value given that he's moving from a poor offensive team in Carolina to a strong one.

Gerbe, a pending unrestricted free agent who plans to continue his career in North America, has drawn interest from several teams across the NHL, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.

EDGE Analysis

With this report, Dreger squashes rumors that the diminutive Gerbe is headed for Switzerland. He had a forgettable 2015-16 campaign with the Hurricanes, getting shelved for nearly two months following a lower-body injury in November -- Gerbe would end up with just seven points (three goals, four assists) in 47 games. Despite having a low center of gravity due to his small stature, Gerbe seemingly lost a step in the defensive zone, as evidenced by his career-low minus-15 rating. Injuries are always going to be a concern for Gerbe, but he's hit the 31-point mark twice in his career and figures to sprinkle in some offense for any club in need of a bottom-six forward.
