Maple Leafs claim veteran G Gerber off waivers @NHLdotcom

TORONTO (AP) -The Toronto Maple Leafs added some depth in front of the goal Wednesday, picking up Martin Gerber off re-entery waivers from the Ottawa Senators.

The veteran goaltender is 4-9-1 in 14 appearances this season with a 2.86 goals-against average and .899 save percentage. He's spent the past couple months with Binghamton in the American Hockey League.

Gerber, who is making $3.7 million this season, will become an unrestricted free agent July 1. The Leafs will pay half his salary for the remainder of the season.

The Maple Leafs also picked up defenseman Erik Reitz off waivers from the New York Rangers.

Reitz has two points in 42 games with the Rangers and Minnesota Wild this season.
