Of course he was signed for OKC, this isn't news. The back up spot was always going to go to either JD or DD. The only chance Gerber had of making the big club out of camp, was injuries to 2 of the 3 goalies, or if Khabibulin was unable to play due to his legal problems. Gerber is an OK back up, nothing more, nothing less.
