ISLANDERS ACQUIRE MARC-ANDRE BERGERON
Also acquire 2008 third round pick from Edmonton in deal for Denis Grebeshkov

The New York Islanders have acquired puck-moving defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron and a third round selection in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for defenseman Denis Grebeshkov.

"This trade addresses our need for a quality offensive defenseman to improve our power play," said Islanders general manager Garth Snow. "Marc-Andre is an excellent point man, a very good skater and a solid competitor. We like the fact that, at 26, he's just entering his prime. With Bergeron, Bruno Gervais, Freddy Meyer and Chris Campoli, we now have four young defensemen who can really move the puck."

The 26-year old Bergeron (5-10, 197 pounds) appeared in 55 games for Edmonton this season, scoring eight goals with 17 assists for 25 points and 28 penalty minutes. The St. Louis de France, Quebec native is in his fourth season in the NHL all with Edmonton. He played in 18 playoff games for the Oilers during their run to the Stanley Cup Final last season. The undrafted Bergeron was originally signed by Edmonton out of the QMJHL in July of 2001. In 189 career NHL games, Bergeron has scored 33 goals with 55 assists for 99 points, a +9 plus/minus rating and 101 penalty minutes.

As a junior player with Shawinigan in 2000-01, Bergeron was named the CHL's and QMJHL's Defenseman of the Year. In his junior career, Bergeron appeared in 249 games and scored 86 goals with 144 assists for 230 points, a +29 plus/minus rating and 529 penalty minutes.

The Islanders acquired Grebeshkov at last year's trade deadline along with Jeff Tambellini and a draft pick from the Los Angeles Kings for Brent Sopel and Mark Parrish. He appeared in 21 games with the Islanders after the trade and totaled three assists. The 23-year old Grebeshkov is playing this season in his native Russia.
