2018 Fantasy Outlook
Due to Corey Crawford (upper body) missing much of the campaign, Berube got an opportunity to see some action at the NHL level with the Blackhawks in 2017-18, but he struggled mightily, compiling a 3-6-1 record, 3.78 GAA and .894 save percentage through 13 appearances. Chicago traded the 27-year-old netminder to the Blue Jackets in exchange for Jordan Schroeder in June, but there's no reason to expect that he'll have better success in Columbus. In all likelihood, Berube will spend the entire 2018-19 campaign in the AHL, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on him. Read Past Outlooks

Reassigned to AHL

January 11, 2019
Berube was sent down to AHL Cleveland on Friday.
With Sergei Bobrovsky rejoining the team after being disciplined for not meeting conduct standards, Berube became the odd man out. For the season, Berube holds an 11-10-0 record with Columbus' minor-league affiliate. He did not appear in an NHL game during his most recent call-up.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
After two years serving as the third fiddle to Thomas Greiss and Jaroslav Halak for the Islanders, Berube departed in free agency to sign a two-year deal with the Blackhawks ... where he'll serve as the third fiddle behind Corey Crawford and Anton Forsberg. There’s a chance the somewhat more experienced Berube beats out Forsberg for the backup job, but it’s more likely that the 26-year-old spends most of 2017-18 as the starting goalie for AHL Rockford.
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.
