Gerbe to miss 4-6 weeks with injury

Carolina Hurricanes forward Nathan Gerbe will be sidelined as estimated four to six weeks with a lower-body injury, general manager Ron Francis said Tuesday.

Gerbe has been placed on injured reserve, retroactive to Nov. 22.

Gerbe was injured in the first period of Carolina’s 4-3 win Sunday against the Los Angeles Kings at PNC Arena. He was hit by the Kings’ Kyle Clifford, who was not penalized on the play.

Gerbe has a goal and two assists in 20 games this season.
