According to Darren Dreger, the Islanders have traded defenseman RFA Bruno Gervais to the Tampa Bay Lightning for future considerations.
Gervais was selected by the Islanders 182nd Overall in the 2003 Draft. He scored 9 goals for 68 points in 331 games for the New York Islanders in his 6 years with the team.
CH: We knew Bruno wasn't going to be back, and this is the right thing to get anything for him. Obviously, Gervais had his struggles over the past few seasons, but in the aggregate the Islanders did get very good value out of a 6th round pick. He's easily one of the nicest guys I've ever met to play for the Islanders. However, it was certainly time to move on, and I wish Gervais the best in Tampa Bay.
AT: Adios, Chef Bruno. Nice guy, loved the team, but he wasn't even good at a 7-8 D-man. Wish him all the best in Tampa Bay with the rest of the former Islanders like Roloson, MAB, Brewer, etc.
