The Vegas Golden Knights have acquired Jean-Francois Berube, Mikhail Grabovski, Jake Bischoff, a 2017 first-round pick, and a 2019 second-round pick from the New York Islanders.

Berube is the player that Vegas actually claimed in the expansion draft. The rest are pieces that the Islanders gave to the Golden Knights in exchange for them taking Berube over some better options and also absorbing the final season of Mikhail Grabovski's four-year, $20 million contract. Berube will likely start the season in the AHL. In other words, Vegas didn't get much from the Islanders in terms of immediate help, but those two high picks could play a key role in the Golden Knights building their future.

TSN's Bob McKenzie is hearing that the Islanders will lose Jean-Francois Berube in the expansion draft.

New York and Vegas appear to have a deal in the works that would also send the 15th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft and Mikhail Grabovski to the Golden Knights. Berube has served as the third-string goalie on the Isles for the last two seasons.

Jean-Francois Berube will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against Nashville.

The Islanders will go with Jaroslav Halak as their starter and Thomas Greiss as their backup. Berube has no value in any fantasy leagues.
Apr 4 - 8:02 PM

Unfortunately, Jean-Francois Berube's fantasy value to close the season will likely take a hit now that Jaroslav Halak has been recalled from AHL Bridgeport.

The young netminder has gone 7-3-2 with a 3.42 GAA and an .889 save percentage in 14 games this season. With the Islanders charging towards a playoff slot, it's likely that Berube will get squeezed out of playing time despite three sets of back-to-back games to close the season.

Jean-Francois Berube allowed four goals on 13 shots before being pulled from the New York Islanders' goal in the second period of an 8-4 loss to the visiting Carolina Hurricanes Monday night.

Thomas Greiss replaced Berube and had a similar night, giving up four goals and making 16 saves. After 14 games, Berube's goals-against average is now up to 3.42 while his save percentage is down to .889.

Jean-Francois Berube came in relief of Thomas Greiss and did his job during Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.

Mar 5 - 5:07 PM

Coach Doug Weight believes in his goaltending duo of Thomas Greiss and Jean-Francois Berube.

While Greiss has been great, Berube has given up four goals in two of the last three games. "Our goaltenders, we believe in them," Weight said. "We’ve had maybe two practices in the last 12 days, so you’ve got a young guy who’s taking shots from guys like me, not from Johnny T [Tavares]. It’s tough. But we have two good goaltenders and we got a big win from Roubs tonight." The Islanders have Jaroslav Halak in the minors where he won his 12th straight on Sunday and is 13-1-1 thus far.
