RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jean-Francois Berube.
Berube made the jump from the QMJHL to the ECHL last year and handled himself pretty well (17-13-4, 2.87 GAA, .907 save percentage) in a platoon. Jonathan Quick is firmly entrenched in Los Angeles, but the 21-year-old has lots of development left before that becomes an issue. He'll head back to the ECHL again this year.
Berube was once again the primary backstop for the Montreal Juniors in the QMJHL, going 32-7-8 with three shutouts in 50 starts. A move up to the ECHL isn't out of the question after spending the last three years in the QMJHL. He's a long way away from helping the Kings though.
