The Maple Leafs and Jonathan Bernier's agent Pat Brisson plan to meet again in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. at the weekend's NHL Entry Draft.
Bernier is coming off a two-year, $5.9M contract and will turn 27 years old in August. The RFA has performed admirably for the Leafs over his initial contract, posting a 47-47-14 record with a 2.78 GAA and a .918 save percentage over 113 games. He's also registered just three shutouts, along with 56 Quality Starts against 16 Really Bad Starts, 11 of which came last season. While the Leafs have protected themselves by opting for salary arbitration, Bernier wants a long-term deal. The Leafs are unsure however, and have two more pressing contracts to deal with in Dion Phaneuf and Phil Kessel. Jun 23 - 7:01 PM

Jonathan Bernier is looking for a long-term deal according to the Toronto Sun.

Like most of his teammates in 2014-15, Bernier really struggled in the second half of the regular season. The 26-year-old's numbers were all down from last year and it doesn't appear as though the two sides will agree on a long-term deal. For the time being, the Maple Leafs have opted to take Bernier to salary arbitration.

Toronto filed for club-elected salary arbitration with Jonathan Bernier on Wednesday.

Contract talks are expected to continue, though. Bernier can be a restricted free agent in July. He posted a 21-28-7 record last season to go with a .912 save percentage and a 2.87 goals-against average.

Jonathan Bernier made 30 saves in the Maple Leafs’ 4-3 shootout win against the Canadiens on Saturday night.

Bernier is another player who might’ve played his final game with the Maple Leafs. He had a down year, posting a 2.87 goals-against average and .912 save percentage. We wouldn't count him out to return to being a stable fantasy presence next year.

Jonathan Bernier will get the start Saturday against Montreal.

Interim-head coach Peter Horachek has told the press that Saturday night's game is the Maple Leafs' Stanely Cup playoffs, so he will ice the best team he's got. That would mean Bernier gets the start. Even though the Canadiens have clinched a playoff spot, they will be playing for first place in the Atlantic Division so there should be plenty on the line. That makes starting Bernier an iffy proposition for those in hockey pools.

Jonathan Bernier will get the start against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Bernier comes in with a 21-28-6 record with a .912 save percentage and a 2.87 GAA through 57 games this season. He's also posted 26 Quality Starts against 11 Really Bad Starts, the second most in the league. Bernier hasn't fared well against Montreal either, he's 1-3-2 with 19 goals against in six starts.

Jonathan Bernier stopped 43 of 45 shots in Sunday's 3-2 shootout win over Ottawa.

The win ends a personal seven game losing streak for Bernier. The Leafs got back-to-back strong performances from their goaltenders this weekend but Bernier was the only one who picked up a win. The 26-year-old improves his record to 21-28-6 on the season. Bernier was named the game's first star for his effort.
Apr 5 - 10:45 PM

Jonathan Bernier will get the start Sunday against the Senators.

He did not look good in his last start Wednesday against the Sabres, allowing four goals on 31 shots. We would pass on both Maple Leaf goalies this weekend.
Apr 4 - 12:37 PM

Look for the Maple Leafs to split goalie starts this weekend.

The team plays Boston on Saturday night and Ottawa on Sunday. Look for Jonathan Bernier to draw the starting assignment against the Bruins and James Reimer to get the call against Ottawa, against whom he has had a lot of success. Adjust your roster accordingly.
Apr 3 - 12:02 PM

Toronto goalie Jonathan Bernier allowed four goals on 31 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Sabres in Buffalo Wednesday night.

Bernier was starting for the first time in three games. He had beaten the Sabres twice previously this season and starred in this game, stopping 40 of 43 shots. But the Leafs squandered a 3-1 lead to the Sabres, who beat Bernier twice in the third period. Bernier is now 20-28-6 this season. His goals-against average is 2.91 and his save percentage is .911. After 55 appearances, it's safe to conclude that Bernier has underachieved woefully this season. But then, he's playing behind a dreadful Toronto team.

Jonathan Bernier will get the nod in net Wednesday night when the Maple Leafs visit the Sabres.

Bernier will make his first start in the Leafs last three games Wednesday night versus a team he has already defeated twice this season. In those two starts, he stopped 40 of 43 shots including one shutout. On the season he has a 20-27-6 record with a 2.89 goals-against-average and .912 save percentage in 54 appearances.
Apr 1 - 5:02 PM

Jonathan Bernier allowed three goals on 16 shots in Thursday night's game against Florida before getting the yank midway through the second period.

The Leafs lost 4-1 to the Panthers, and Bernier lost his sixth straight game. Bernier falls to 20-27-6 this season with a .912 save percentage and 2.89 goals against average. The 26-year-old is on a horrible team, but he has not helped the cause with a dismal record in the second half of the year.
Mar 26 - 11:29 PM

Jonathan Bernier will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against Florida.

The 26-year-old enters Thursday's action on a five game losing streak. Bernier has a 20-26-6 record with a 2.86 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage. The Leafs probably won't win many games down the stretch so you shouldn't start Bernier too often down the stretch.
Mar 26 - 7:43 PM

Jonathan Bernier made 30 saves in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Wild.

Bernier had a solid game, and could only be beaten when his defense failed to help clear the net. The loss drops his record 20-26-6 with a .913 save percentage and a 2.86 GAA.
Mar 24 - 12:21 AM

Jonathan Bernier will get the call in net Monday night versus the Minnesota Wild.

On the season he holds a 20-25-6 record, 2.88 GAA, and .912 save percentage in 52 games played.
