      Islanders' Jean-Francois Berube: Placed on injured reserve Saturday

      Berube (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Berube likely suffered the injury in Wednesday's game against AHL Albany, as he was replaced in net by Christopher Gibson at the start of the third period of the contest. He'll be eligible to return from injured reserve on Dec. 5, at which point he will likely once again be sent to AHL Bridgeport.

      Islanders' Jean-Francois Berube: Sent to AHL for conditioning

      Berube was sent to the AHL for a conditioning stint Tuesday, reports Islanders web site. The Islanders claimed Berube off waivers just before the season started because Jaroslav Halak was banged up and they needed goaltending insurance. Berube has only played one game for team this season and with both Halak and Thomas Greiss healthy, that is unlikely to change.

      Islanders' Jean-Francois Berube: Gives up four goals in NHL debut

      Berube made his NHL debut Saturday, stopping 30 of 34 shots in a loss to the Blackhawks. A decent showing from Berube, who did his best against a potent Blackhawks offense. With starter Jaroslav Halak sidelined with an upper-body injury, Berube was claimed off waivers to temporarily fill the backup role behind Thomas Greiss. He's posted a .913 save percentage two consecutive seasons in the AHL, so even if he does happen to see more action in the Islanders crease, don't expect anything spectacular.

      Berube to start in goal Saturday Night. After being claimed off waivers by the Islanders Tuesday, Berube will start at goalie Saturday night. The Islanders will be looking for their first win of the season.

    • Claimed off waivers by Islanders Tuesday

      News: J.F. Berube was claimed off waivers by the Islanders Tuesday, TSN's Frank Seravalli reports.
      Analysis: With Jaroslav Halak's status for the Islanders' regular-season opener against the Blackhawks on Friday still up in the air, J.F. Berube will serve as an insurance policy in case he isn't able to suit up for the tilt. Berube was phenomenal with AHL Manchester last season, posting a 37-9-4 record with a 2.18 GAA and a .913 save percentage en route to a Calder Cup finals win.
    • Kings Send Berube Back To Manchester

      News: J.F. Berube was reassigned to AHL Manchester on Thursday, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
      Analysis: It's uncertain at this time if Martin Jones (back spasms) will be ready to play when the Kings return to action Jan. 28 against the Blackhawks, so it's possible that J.F. Berube's demotion will only be a short-term one. The decision to send Berube down was born more out of an effort by the Kings to keep the goalie on the ice during the break, rather than remaining idle.
    • Kings Recall Berube

      News: J.F. Berube was recalled from AHL Manchester on Saturday, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
      Analysis: News surfaced at the Kings' morning skate that Martin Jones would be unavailable for at least Saturday's game against the Ducks due to an undisclosed injury, so J.F. Berube will join the team to serve as the backup to Jonathan Quick. It's not believed that Jones' injury is significant, so it's quite possible Berube won't see any work with the parent club during his stay there. The 23-year-old has been one of the best goalies in the AHL this season, going 19-4-3 with a 2.05 GAA and .920 save percentage over 27 outings.
    • Kings Send Berube To Minors

      News: Los Angeles sent J.F. Berube to AHL Manchester on Sunday, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
      Analysis: J.F. Berube had a nice season in the AHL last season where he appeared in 48 games and compiled a 28-17-2 record. Berube never really had a chance of making the Kings' roster with Jonathan Quick and Martin Jones being the top-two goalies. Berube is only 23 so he has time to develop his skills in the AHL for now.
    • Kings, Berube Agree To New Deal

      News: J.F. Berube re-signed with the Kings on a two-way contract Tuesday.
      Analysis: J.F. Berube, 23, played a career-high 48 games for AHL Manchester in 2013-14, going 28-17-2 with a 2.37 GAA and .913 save percentage, ranking in the top six among AHL rookies in all categories. The presence of Jonathan Quick and Martin Jones with the big club likely relegates Berube to Manchester for the bulk of 2014-15, barring a long-term injury to either netminder.
    • Kings Send Berube Back To Minors

      News: J.F. Berube was returned to AHL Manchester on Monday, Jon Rosen of reports.
      Analysis: With the Kings set to resume game action this week, Martin Jones was recalled from Manchester to take J.F. Berube's spot as the backup goalie. Like Jones, Berube also appears to be a promising netminding prospect for the Kings. He owns a 19-13-2 record and 2.43 GAA in 34 games with Manchester this season.
