Berube penned a one-year deal with the Islanders on Tuesday. Berube went 3-2-1 during his rookie season as the back-up netminder after Jaroslav Halak (groin) was injured. With Thomas Greiss securely locked in as the back-up, fantasy owners can anticipate the 24-year-old Berube will be back with AHL Bridgeport Sound for the 2016-17 campaign.
Berube (lower body) will suit up Thursday to serve as the backup netminder against Florida. Berube missed the last five outings of the regular season, but appears to be ready to retake his spot on the bench. Unless Thomas Greiss falters, the 24-year-old is likely done for year. Looking to 2016-17, it is hard to judge the rookie's fantasy value in just seven contests in which he went 3-2-1 while posting a .914 save percentage.
Berube (lower body) skated Wednesday and nearing a return, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports. Berube should slot in behind Thomas Greiss when healthy, but could have a chance at seeing some time between the pipes when healthy. Even so, it's unlikely it will be enough to put him in consideration for the majority of playoff pools. We will update his status again when he's healthy and ready to dress for game action.
Berube (lower body) took to the ice Thursday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Berube is not expected to start this weekend for the Islanders but is expected to be ready to backup Thomas Greiss next Wednesday or Thursday when the playoffs start.
Berube is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury. The issue likely occurred at some point in Saturday's game and will cost him Monday's contest at a minimum. The Isles recalled Christopher Gibson on an emergency basis to serve as the backup behind Thomas Greiss on Monday, but Berube should retake that role again when healthy. His next chance to return would come Tuesday against the Capitals, but no firm timetable has been established.
