2008-09: Though he played behind Jake Allen (STL), already rather highly touted in his own right, J-F Berube caught the eyes of many despite his limited work. Playing in just 20 games with a record of 6-9, Berube posted a goals-against-average of 2.89 and a save percentage of .900.
2009-10: In 45 starts with the Juniors, Berube posted a 17-23 record, 3.03 GAA, .897 save percentage, and 1 shutout. He was assigned to the Manchester Monarchs when his QMJHL season was over and there posted a 2-1 record, 3.67 GAA, and .855 save percentage in 3 starts.
2010-11: Berube signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Los Angeles in May 2011 after a busy (and successful) third season in the QMJHL. Berube appeared in 50 games for the Montreal Juniors and his 32 wins were second-most in the league. He had three shutouts with a 2.60 GAA and .902 save percentage. Berube's final mark of 32-15 included eight overtime losses as he kept the Juniors in the game on most nights. After finishing first in the West Division, Montreal advanced to the second round of the playoffs. Berube was 6-4 in the playoffs and had two shutouts with a 2.79 GAA and .901 save percentage.
2011-12: Berube attended camp with the Kings and made the jump to pro hockey as a 20-year-old – sharing the goaltending duties for the ECHL's Ontario Reign with Winnipeg Jets prospect Chris Carrozzi. Berube was 17-17 with four losses coming in overtime and had 4 shutouts with a 2.87 goals against and .907 save percentage. The Reign finished first in the Pacific Division but were upset by Idaho in a tight, five-game first round playoff series. Berube played in four of five playoff games and was 1-2 with a 3.20 goals against and .878 save percentage.
J-F Berube caught the eyes of many despite his limited work this season. The big butterfly goaltender is always square to the shooter and moves quickly between the pipes. In fact, some say the only real flaw this Quebec native has is the lack of playing time and exposure.
Berube has begun his pro career and is playing for Ontario Reign in the ECHL.
