The Colorado Avalanche have inked Jonathan Bernier to a one-year, $2.75 million deal.
Bernier should serve as Semyon Varlamov’s backup after Calvin Pickard was lost to the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft. Varlamov is a bit injury prone so there could be some decent playing time available for Bernier, but the Avs are not a very good team and as a result, Bernier’s fantasy numbers could get rather ugly.

Jonathan Bernier could become a member of the Colorado Avalanche once free agency opens at noon ET.

The Anaheim Ducks are reportedly finalizing a deal with veteran Ryan Miller, which means they don't have room to keep Bernier around. Colorado is in need of another goalie because they lost Calvin Pickard to Vegas in the expansion draft. The Avs might not be a very good team, but given starting goalie Semyon Varlamov's injury history, this is a nice landing spot for Bernier. The 28-year-old had a 21-7-4 record with a 2.51 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage last season.
Jul 1 - 8:55 AM

Goalie Jonathan Bernier, making his first postseason start because of a lower-body injury to first-stringer John Gibson, had a forgettable night Monday, stopping only 12 of the 16 shots he faced in the Anaheim Ducks' 6-3 loss to the Predators in Nashville.

The Preds, who qualified for the first Stanley Cup Final in their history with the victory in the sixth game of the Western Conference Final, scored on Bernier on two of their first three shots. Bernier settled down somewhat after that but didn't get much work and allowed four goals on 16 Nashville shots. Bernier's postseason goals-against average in four appearances was 3.28 and his save percentage, .873.

Jonathan Bernier will play between the pipes in Game 6 Monday night.

John Gibson suffered a lower-body injury in Game 5. He skated Monday morning and the hope was that he would be available, but that ultimately wasn't the case. Bernier has a 2.90 GAA and .905 save percentage in three playoff games this year, but this will be his first postseason start of the Ducks' run.
May 22 - 7:56 PM

Jonathan Bernier allowed two goals on 18 shots in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Nashville Predators in Game 5 of the Western Conference Final.

Bernier entered the game in the second period after starter John Gibson left with a lower-body injury. The Ducks held a 1-0 lead in the second period, but the Predators scored three unanswered goals to close out the game. The Ducks now trail the best-of-seven series 3-2. One more loss and they'll officially be eliminated from the postseason. Game 6 will be played in Nashville on Monday night. It'll be interesting to see if Anaheim will have to turn to Bernier in that do-or-die game.
May 20 - 11:12 PM

Jonathan Bernier was called into action in Sunday night's Game 6, stopping 25 of 29 shots in a 7-1 loss.

Bernier didn't far much better than John Gibson, who allowed three goals on the first six shots. He has now stopped 40 of 45 shots in the playoffs, giving him a 1-0 record, 2.82 goals against average and .911 save percentage in the playoffs. It's unlikely Bernier did enough to earn consideration for the start in Game 7.
May 7 - 10:43 PM

It will be interesting to see who starts in Game 4 for Anaheim.

John Gibson started in the first three games, but he was yanked in Game 3. Jonathan Bernier stepped in and turned aside all 16 shots he faced to help the Flames pull off a comeback win. Ducks coach Randy Carlyle refused to reveal his planned starting goaltender, though that's not unusual for him.

Mar 30 - 11:57 PM

Jonathan Bernier will be in net against the Jets on Thursday as he looks to keep his hot month going.

Anaheim's replacement starter has posted a 10-1-1 record with a shutout, 20 goals against and a .946 save percentage in 12 games this month. He's won five in a row, and nine of 10, since his last regulation loss as well.
Mar 30 - 5:56 PM

Jonathan Bernier made 34 saves and let one puck get past him as the Ducks downed the Canucks 4-1 Tuesday.

Bernier has two shutouts so far, but this was his third-best save percentage of the season.

Bernier entered the night with a season-long save percentage of .917 and a GAA of 2.47. He improved both stats significantly with this win.
