Standing at 5’5”, Nathan Gerbe doesn’t look like much at first glance – but try looking closer. The Buffalo Sabres’ 2005 fifth-round draft pick may have a very big future in the NHL. Gerbe played his college hockey as an Eagle at Boston College.
In 2008 Gerbe led the Eagles to the Championship, scoring five goals in the team’s final two games – he was honored as the tournament MVP as a result. In the same season, Gerbe was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, which is given to the NCAA’s top men’s ice hockey player. He finished with 68 points in just 43 games.
