The Edmonton Oilers signed veteran goaltender Martin Gerber to a two-way contract Friday, the team announced.
The deal pays Gerber a different amount based on whether he’s playing for Edmonton or Oklahoma City.
Gerber has had success in the NHL, helping the Carolina Hurricanes to a division title in 2005-06 but struggled in the playoffs and was replaced by Cam Ward as the Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup.
The 36-year-old Swiss goaltender last played in the NHL in 2008-09 with Toronto and spent last season in the Kontinental Hockey League, playing for Atlant Moscow.
The Oilers already had three goalies under contract: Nikolai Khabibulin, Jeff Deslauriers and Devan Dubnyk. Those contracts are all one-way deals, though, so the players would have to clear waivers before being assigned to the Barons.
