Jonathan Bernier (born August 7, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted in the first round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, 11th overall, by the Los Angeles Kings.

Personal lifeEdit

Jonathan is the younger brother of Marc-André Bernier, a draft choice of the Vancouver Canucks who now plays with the Ligue Magnus's Diables Rouges de Briançon.[1]

Playing careerEdit

Bernier's junior career was spent entirely with the Lewiston Maineiacs in the QMJHL. The first goal to be scored on him in the QMJHL was by his brother, Marc-André Bernier, at the Halifax Metro Center on September 24, 2004. The goal was in the first period at 15:39. It was Jonathan's first ever QMJHL game.

On September 29, 2007, Bernier was given the starting role for the Kings in their 2007–08 NHL season debut game versus the Anaheim Ducks in London, England. He allowed one goal on 27 shots, earning the win by the final score of 4–1, while being named the second star of the game. During the 07-08 season, Bernier finished with a 1-3 record, a 4.03 goals against average and a .864 save percentage. Due to these numbers, Bernier was sent back to his junior team in Lewiston.

Due to the emergence of Jonathan Quick, the Kings were able to keep Bernier playing with the Manchester Monarchs to season him in the American Hockey League (AHL) for the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 seasons. He would be named to Team Canada for the 2010 AHL All-Star game.[2]

While Quick was attending to the birth of his first child, Bernier made his 2010 debut for the Kings with an outstanding 29 save 2-1 shootout win against the Dallas Stars, where he also stopped all six shots he faced in the shootout. On March 30 he recorded a 2-0 shutout against the Nashville Predators in his second NHL game of the 2009-2010 season.[3]
