In 197 career AHL games, Berube has a 111-66-24 record with a 2.49 GAA and a .909 save percentage. He helped the Manchester Monarchs win the Calder Cup in 2015 with a 13-3 playoff record in 17 appearances.
Berube has appeared in 34 NHL games over parts of three seasons with the New York Islanders and Chicago Blackhawks, going 9-10-4 with a 3.39 GAA and a .898 save percentage. He was selected by Los Angeles in the fourth round (95th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
