Jonathan Bernier will get the start against the Ottawa Senators in Sweden this afternoon.

The Avalanche are coming off a 4-3 OT loss to the Senators last night, a game in which Semyon Varlamov started for Colorado. The plan was always for each goalie to get one start in Sweden. Bernier's record sits at 2-3-0 with a 3.62 goals against average and a .884 save percentage.
Nov 11 - 12:45 PM

The New York Islanders walloped Jonathan Bernier for six goals on 28 shots in Sunday's 6-4 loss.

Bernier has now allowed 13 goals in his last three games. The 29-year-old is 2-3 this season with a 3.62 and .884 save percentage. Semyon Varlamov's strong return and Bernier's slow start has rendered him worthless in fantasy leagues.

Jonathan Bernier will get the call for Colorado on Sunday night.

The plan on Saturday was for Semyon Varlamov to play in the first half of the back-to-back against Philadelphia and then have Bernier face the New York Islanders. Varlamov helped the Avalanche get a 5-4 shootout win versus the Flyers. Bernier has a 2-2-0 record this year with a 3.03 GAA and a .906 save percentage.

Jonathan Bernier turned in an excellent performance in Colorado's 6-3 upset of the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

A night after getting embarrassed 7-0 by the expansion Golden Knights, the Avalanche took care of one of the better teams in hockey quite easily. If Bernier can string together a few more impressive starts, he might find himself starting more games than Varlamov in the not so distant future. The win improves Bernier's record to 2-2-0 with a 3.03 goals against average and a .906 save percentage.

The Colorado Avalanche have announced that Jonathan Bernier will start in goal tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Bernier's last outing was a 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Blues on October 19th. He has a 1-2-0 record with a 3.04 goals against average and .904 save percentage this season. He should not be owned in any formats.
Oct 28 - 1:22 PM

Jonathan Bernier stopped 24 of the 28 shots he faced as the Colorado Avalanche lost their third straight 4-3 to the St. Louis Blues.

Three of the four goals to beat Bernier came in the second period, with Jaden Schwartz and Vince Dunn scoring less than a minute apart. Not the best performance for Bernier, who drops to 1-2-0 on the season with a 3.04 goals-against average and a below-average .894 save percentage. He has little fantasy value as he is the clear backup to Semyon Varlamov.
Oct 20 - 12:15 AM

Jonathan Bernier is projected to be Colorado's starter on Thursday.

Bernier has a 1-1-0 record, 2.52 GAA, and .912 save percentage in two starts. He's a solid backup goaltender, but Semyon Varlamov is the clear number one in Colorado.
Oct 18 - 3:55 PM

Jonathan Bernier stopped 17 of 18 shots in a 3-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

Bernier's first Avalanche win comes against his former team the Anaheim Ducks. Despite the Avalanche's hot start to the year, Bernier will have a hard time returning fantasy value and should not be owned in any formats. His record now sits at 1-1-0 on the year with a 2.52 goals against average and a .912 save percentage.
Oct 14 - 12:23 AM

Jonathan Bernier will start for Colorado on Friday against Anaheim.

That will result in Semyon Varlamov playing in Saturday's contest. Bernier spent the 2016-17 campaign with the Ducks, so using him in the first half of the back-to-back set will allow him to face his own team.
Oct 12 - 4:17 PM

Jonathan Bernier stopped 25 of 29 shots in a 4-1 loss to New Jersey on Saturday.

Bernier was making his first start of the season after Semyon Varlamov got the nod in Thursday's opener. Bernier is firmly in the backup role with the Avalanche.
Oct 7 - 4:46 PM

Jonathan Bernier will play between the pipes on Saturday.

It will be Bernier's first start of the campaign after Semyon Varlamov played in the season opener. Bernier had a 2.50 GAA and .915 save percentage in 39 contests last season.
Oct 6 - 4:12 PM

Jonathan Bernier (groin) is back to 100 percent.

Bernier tweaked his groin last week, but now that he's healthy Joe Cannata has been returned to the minors. The veteran netminder will be Colorado's backup this season behind Semyon Varlamov.

Jonathan Bernier (groin) wasn't on the ice for Saturday's practice.

Bernier was injured on Monday and at this point he's looking doubtful for the season opener. If he isn't available then Colorado will use Joe Cannata as its backup goaltender.

Jonathan Bernier didn't take part in Wednesday's practice due to a groin injury.

Bernier sustained the injury on Monday. He's considered day-to-day, so he might still be okay for the season opener.
