Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Martin Gerber
Martin Gerber was born March 9, 1974 in Burgdorf, Switzerland. The eighth round, 232nd overall selection of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Gerber came to North America in 2002-03 after leading Farjestads to the Swedish Elite League title the previous year.

A two-time member of SC Langnau of the Swiss National League, Gerber represented his homeland at the 2002 Winter Olympics Games in Salt Lake City, Utah posting a 1.51 GAA and two wins before joining Anaheim for his rookie campaign in 2002-03. In his first season with Anaheim, Gerber finished with a 6-11-3 record and a 1.95 GAA, as the Mighty suprised many by reaching the Stanley Cup Final, only to fall short in a hard fought seven game series against the New Jersey Devils.

With Mighty Ducks struggling in 2003-04, Gerber improved on his win total, finishing the season with an 11-12-4 record and a 2.25 GAA. Following a Stanley Cup run in 2003, the Mighty Ducks failed to make the playoffs in 2004 and Gerber was subsequently dealt to the Carolina Hurricanes in the summer of 2004 for defenseman, Tomas Malec.

With the Carolina Hurricanes, Gerber backstopped the team into the 2006 NHL playoffs. However, the netminder would struggle in the first round and was replaced by his back-up Cam Ward who would lead the Hurricanes to the Stanley Cup.

In the Summer of 2006, the free agent goaltender Gerber signed a multi-year contract with the Ottawa Senators.

Aside from his Olympic experience in 2002 & 2006, Gerber has gone on to represent his homeland at six World Championships (2000-2002, 2004-2005, 2008).
