UPDATE: WGR is reporting it’s a 3 year deal.
UPDATE 2: And Bob McKenzie reveals the dollar side of things:

The diminutive Gerbe struggled to translate his high-octane scoring game from the NCAA to the NHL, but once he found his niche, his game had changed all together. Now the Boston College alum plays the game with a decided edge and chirpy element, scoring timely goals instead of a flood of them.
With Gerbe locked up, the Sabres now have Jhonas Enroth, Mike Weber, Marc-Andre Gragnani, and Andrej Sekera to worry about.
