Ice-T gets to know Nathan Gerbe on Law & Order

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Nathan Gerbe joined most of the Sabres on a yacht with owner Terry Pegula on Wednesday night, so the left winger wasn’t watching the NBC drama "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." He learned he should have tuned in.

The episode focused on a Buffalo family that had its car stolen while their baby was in it. The child’s aunt explained to police how the baby's parents named him.

"She wanted to name the baby Ty," the woman said, "but he wanted Nathan, for Nathan Gerbe.’’

As one officer, played by rapper Ice-T, gave a look of unfamiliarity, the other cop said: "He leads the Sabres in penalty minutes."

Said Gerbe, who got multiple messages about the unexpected appearance: "It’s funny. I was laughing."
