Bernier was sent to AHL Bridgeport on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Bernier saw time on the ice in four separate occasions during this stint with the Islanders, but never logged more than 11:34 of playing time. He only serves the purpose of organizational depth at this point in his career, but it's still possible for him to rejoin the NHL team at some point again this season.

Bernier will make his first NHL appearance since the 2015-16 campaign Saturday evening against the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

Islanders GM Garth Snow raised some brows upon recalling Bernier from AHL Bridgeport on Friday. After all, the team already had two spare forwards in Alan Quine and Shane Prince on the active roster, but then again, the 32-year-old may have played his way up to the parent club, having deposited 10 goals and four helpers in 21 games with the Sound Tigers leading up to the promotion. Nonetheless, it's going to be difficult to trust the fourth-liner in fantasy.

The Islanders recalled Bernier from AHL Bridgeport on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The Islanders loaned Josh Ho-Sang to AHL Bridgeport in a corresponding move Friday, so Bernier will round out the team's depth at forward until Ho-Sang is once again recalled by the big club. The 32-year-old winger has picked up 10 goals and 14 points in 21 games in the minors this campaign.

Bernier hit the waiver wire Monday as the Islanders look to reassign him to the minors.

EDGE Analysis

Bernier -- a former first-round draft pick -- has racked up 633 NHL games in which he has tallied 105 goals and 125 assists. The veteran was limited to a mere 33 outings with AHL Bridgeport Sound in 2016-17 and never managed to crack New York's game-day lineup. The winger has never managed to reach the 20-goal mark in his 12-year career, so he is unlikely to suddenly find an explosive scoring touch if he does get called back up down the road.

Bernier signed a two-year, two-way contract Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Bernier spent the entire 2016-17 campaign in the minors as he failed to secure a call up during the season. At this point, the winger -- who was taken No. 16 overall in the 2003 draft -- will likely fill the role of seasoned veteran with Tigers as he helps to groom young players coming up the ranks. For his career, the 32-year-old logged 633 NHL games with 230 points and 300 PIM, but fantasy owners probably shouldn't expect too many appearances in a Islanders jersey next year.

Bernier signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Monday, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The forward had six points in 24 games last season for the Islanders, so it's clear he doesn't have explosive firepower. However, he will provide a veteran body for a team that lost a few wingmen to injury recently.

Bernier was released from his professional tryout Thursday by the Islanders, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bernier made a mere 24 appearances for New York last season in which he garnered only one goal and five helpers. The 31-year-old also failed to register a single point during the postseason. Even if he can secure a new home, the winger is unlikely to offer much in terms of fantasy value.

Bernier signed a professional tryout agreement with the Islanders on Monday, Shannon Hogan of MSG Networks reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bernier has a decent shot at making the Opening Night roster and will likely be competing with the injured Cal Clutterbuck (lower body) for the final spot on the right side. Even if he does make the squad, the 31-year-old could find himself as a healthy scratch night to night. In his brief 24 appearances for New York last year, Bernier notched just six points and nine PIM, along with 42 hits; not the type of production to spur fantasy owners to start adding him to their lineups.

Bernier appears set to replace Ryan Strome in Saturday's contest against the Blues, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.

EDGE Analysis

At this point, it's unclear what is wrong with Strome, if anything. What is known, however, is that this will be Bernier's debut with the Islanders following a 32-point campaign with the Devils. The veteran forward will need more consistent playing time before he would merit a hard look in the fantasy realm.

Bernier (upper body) returned to practice Thursday, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.

EDGE Analysis

Bernier is either the fastest healer in history or his original diagnosis was off the mark as he was supposed to be out for up to two weeks, not two days. He is still in a battle to be a bottom six forward for the Islanders.
