The deal would send Antoine Bibeau to the Val-d’Or Foreurs for draft picks. The Islanders would then use picks to acquire goalie Mason McDonald from the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.
Bibeau, 19, is a six-foot-two 180-pound goalie from Victoriaville, Que. He is 8-16 with a 3.29 goals-against average this season, his third in Charlottetown.
Last year he won the No. 1 job from Maxime Lagace and posted a 28-14 record with a 2.81 goals-against average while posting five shutouts. The Toronto Maple Leafs selected him in the sixth round of the 2013 NHL Draft.
McDonald, 17, is a six-foot-three, 180-pound goalie from Halifax in his second season with the Titan. He is 3-8 with a 3.57 goals-against average.
The Islanders also have Eric Brassard who has proven himself this season. The 18-year-old is 6-8 with a 2.84 goals-against average.
