Steve Bernier will tag in for Ryan Strome in Friday's Game 5 against Florida.

This will be Bernier's postseason debut in 2016. In 67 career playoff games, the veteran grinder has nine goals and 23 points with 44 PIMs and 110 hits. Fans may recall he was part of New Jersey's instrumental third line in 2012 en route to a six-game Stanley Cup loss to Los Angeles.
Apr 22 - 6:52 PM

Steve Bernier will returns to New York's lineup Sunday against the Flyers.

Bernier has posted just six points in 23 games with 40 hits to his credit, so we'd probably leave him on the wire.
Apr 10 - 6:53 PM

Steve Bernier will return to the Islanders' lineup Tuesday night against the Penguins.

With just four points, seven PIMs, and 28 hits in 14 games this season, we wouldn't count on the veteran forward for very much.
Mar 15 - 6:20 PM

Steve Bernier and Eric Boulton will be scratches once again on Wednesday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The scratch will be the sixth straight for Bernier and the fifth straight for Boulton. This B&B pair will have to wait to be reinserted into the lineup.
Mar 9 - 7:03 PM

Coach Jack Capuano will forego any lineup changes for Tuesday's match with Pittsburgh.

Which ultimately means that Steve Bernier, Eric Boulton, and Jean-Francois Berube will each be scratched. It's worth noting however that Boulton could be a nice source of PIMs if you're in a pinch. Too bad the Isles aren't playing Vancouver.
Mar 8 - 6:44 PM

Steve Bernier and Eric Boulton will be scratched against the Rangers on Sunday.

Boulton might've been worth a late pick up as a plug if he was in, but the Islanders also have the likes of Matt Martin and Cal Clutterbuck to rough it up with Chris Kredier and Dylan McIlrath. Which unfortunately indicates that neither Bernier nor Boulton have any fantasy value.

Steve Bernier will play on the fourth line in Tuesday's match with Minnesota.

With three points and 27 hits in 16 games thus far, Bernier doesn't boast much value. But playing to the right of Matt Martin and Casey Cizikas could boost his tough guy stats nicely if you need a plug.
Feb 23 - 7:43 PM

Steve Bernier and Jean-Francois Berube will be scratched from Friday's match with the Devils.

Bernier has played just once since mid-December, and has but 16 games to his credit this season with little to show for his efforts. Unfortunately, it may be time to say good night to him as a grinding producer as well.
Feb 19 - 6:19 PM

Steve Bernier will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Washington Capitals.

Feb 18 - 6:43 PM

Steve Bernier and Scott Mayfield will be scratched from Tuesday's match with Columbus.

Mayfield was unproductive during his NHL debut, which is also the word one would use to describe Bernier's production level through 15 games this season.
Jan 12 - 6:12 PM

Steve Bernier is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Washington Capitals.

The 30-year-old has suited up in just 15 games this season and has been a healthy scratch in six straight games. Eric Boulton and Brian Strait will also be healthy scratches for this one.
Jan 7 - 7:07 PM

Steve Bernier will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

The 30-year-old has one goal and three points in 15 games this season. This will be his fifth time as a healthy scratch in the Islanders' last seven games. Eric Boulton and Brian Strait will also watch from the press box.

Steve Bernier and Brian Strait will be scratched against Toronto on Tuesday night.

Unfortunately neither player possesses much fantasy value outside of the hits category. Bernier has accumulated 27 in 15 games, while Strait has done a bit more with 57 hits in 23 games.
