Update: Brett Cyrgalis has the terms. Like MAD Magazine. Cheap!
Steve Bernier's 2-way deal with #Isles is for $650k/$225k in year 1; $650/$250 in year 2.— Brett Cyrgalis (@BrettCyrgalis) June 10, 2017
Bernier spent all of last year in Bridgeport and, in fairness, was having a good half season before a shoulder injury cut his time short.
Bernier, 32, had 16 goals and 10 assists in 33 games for the Sound Tigers before a torn labrum and bone chip in his shoulder at the all-star break forced him to have season-ending surgery. His stated goal, not surprisingly at all, was getting back to the NHL, but he was a key veteran for Bridgeport in all situations in the first half last year.
He also scored this absolutely hilarious empty net goal off a shot block from the other end of the ice.
Bernier should be solid veteran addition to the Sound Tigers again this season. If he does get a chance with the Islanders it will mean either something has gone terribly awry or he’s having an unbelievable career renaissance. The two year contract thing is weird, though.
But it’s the weekend and I’m going to see Wonder Woman tomorrow so I’ll be mad about this later.
