New York Islanders
He was selected in the sixth round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, 182nd overall, by the New York Islanders. Gervais was named captain of the Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the QMJHL as an 18-year-old even though there were many veteran players. In his 19-year-old season he hurt his knee at the December tryout camp for team Canada's under 20 team. He missed the rest of the season.
After one season in Tampa Bay, Gervais signed a two-year contract worth $1.65 million with the Philadelphia Flyers.
Gervais is the childhood best friend of Flyers forward Max Talbot. He is viewed as a depth defenseman, who could likely fill in as the Flyers’ sixth blue liner. He played in just 50 games last year [2011-2012] with the Lightning. Gervais has never finished an NHL season as a plus or even player in his 7 years in the NHL.
