USA Hockey rewards Gerbe

Congrats go out to Nathan Gerbe, whose 2007-08 season just got a little sweeter by being named National College Player of the Year by USA Hockey.

Gerbe recently signed a professional contract with the Buffalo Sabres.

He earned All-America first-team honors and was a runner-up for the Hobey Baker Award in 2007-08. He led all Division I scorers with 68 points -- 35 goals and 33 assists -- in 43 games.

Additionally, Gerbe captured NCAA Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player accolades after he registered eight points -- five goals and three assists - in victories over North Dakota (4/10) and Notre Dame (4/12) to lead Boston College to the national title.
