‘Gerbe, a 21-year-old native of Oxford, Mich., has registered 27 goals and 26 assists for 53 points in 54 contests for the Pirates this season, leading all AHL rookies in scoring average with 0.98 points per game and ranking tied for second with 11 power-play goals. He recorded two assists in his professional debut on Oct. 11 vs. Manchester and scored his first two pro goals on Oct. 18 at Springfield, and soon notched his first hat trick on Nov. 5 at Worcester – the beginning of an eight-game scoring streak. Gerbe was voted into the starting lineup for the 2009 AHL All-Star Classic but missed the event due to injury.’
