    Islanders' Jean-Francois Berube: Saves 40 for first NHL victory

    Berube turned aside 40 of 43 shots Tuesday, coming away with his first NHL win by a 5-3 score over the Wild. It was only his second career start, with the first having come in early October. While Berube has been outstanding in limited AHL work this year -- 4-1 with a .960 save mark and 1.25 GAA in five games -- the 24-year-old has never put up numbers remotely resembling those at any stage of his career. The fact that he drew this start at all comes as a surprise, as the Isles already have two healthy goalies in Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss -- both of whom have been exceptional this year. Expect to see Berube return to the AHL soon and attempt to keep his momentum going.

    Islanders' Jean-Francois Berube: Draws start Tuesday

    Berube will start in net Tuesday night against the visiting Wild, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Berube getting the starting nod comes as a surprise. The Isles have healthy netminders in Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss ahead of Berube on the depth chart and they should be well rested following the seven-day layoff due to the All-Star Break. It's possible that the Isles are showcasing Berube with the trade deadline looming, but then again, Berube is one day removed from a conditioning stint in the AHL, so perhaps the Islanders are eager to see how he will hold up after dealing with a recent lower-body ailment.

    Islanders' Jean-Francois Berube: Recalled from conditioning stint

    Berube (lower body) was recalled from his conditioning stint Monday. Berube had maxed out the length of his conditioning assignment, forcing the Islanders to either recall or waive him. The team decided to go with the former, and he will now serve as the third netminder behind Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss. Berube probably won't see consistent playing time between the pipes with the two healthy netminders ahead of him, and he could be the first to go should the team need another skater.

    Islanders' Jean-Francois Berube: Sent to Bridgeport for conditioning assignment

    Berube (lower body) has been activated from injured reserve and sent to AHL Bridgeport for a conditioning assignment, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. With Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss both healthy for the NHL squad, Berube will likely stay at AHL Bridgeport once he completes his conditioning assignment. He made his first NHL appearance earlier this season, giving up four goals in a loss to the Blackhawks on Oct. 10.

    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.
