Bergevin joins the club
Former Islander Marc Bergevin will be introduced at 2pm today as the new General Manager of the Montreal Canadiens.
He becomes the sixth former Islander to currently serve as an NHL GM:
Scott Howson, Columbus: 18 games with Isles
Steve Tambellini, Edmonton: 107 games with Isles
Don Maloney, Phoenix: 91 games with Isles
Marc Bergevin, Montreal: 76 games with Isles
Garth Snow, Islanders: 127 games with Isles
Darcy Regier, Buffalo: 11 games with Isles
A 7th GM, Winnipeg's Kevin Chevaldayoff, was drafted by the Islanders but never appeared in the NHL due to injury.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
