Jonathan Bernier will undergo sports hernia surgery on Wednesday.

He sat out five games in March due to the injury before finishing the season on the sidelines with what was initially reported as an MCL strain. He apparently aggravated the injury on Apr. 3 against Boston. "I felt pretty good," he said. "It was sore but my range, my stretching was fine. I think a lot of players play through that." He should be ready for training camp next season.

Jonathan Bernier's lower body injury is a MCL strain.

Bernier is out for three weeks, which means that the only way he returns before 2014-15 is if the Toronto Maple Leafs make the playoffs. The odds of that happening are remote. He has a 2.69 GAA and .923 save percentage in 54 games in 2013-14.
Apr 4 - 12:28 PM

Jonathan Bernier will have an MRI on his lower-body injury Friday morning.

He was forced to leave Thursday's game against Boston with 11:38 seconds remaining in regulation. Bernier was hurt after Toronto defenseman Paul Ranger pushed Patrice Bergeron on top of him. His status should become clearer at some point in the afternoon, but for now consider him day-to-day.

Jonathan Bernier was forced to leave the Maple Leafs' 4-3 overtime win because of a leg injury.

Toronto defenseman Paul Ranger checked Bruins center Patrice Bergeron into Bernier and onto the Leafs netminder. Bernier needed to be helped off the ice and was unable to put pressure on his left leg. He made 25 saves in 48:22. The netminder has a 2.69 goals-against average and .923 save percentage on the season.
Apr 3 - 10:34 PM

Jonathan Bernier made 22 saves in helping the Leafs snap an eight game losing streak while Toronto defeated Calgary 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Bernier has had a tough go since the middle of March, suffering a groin injury in the midst of a three game winning streak, then returning to lose his next three starts and allowing four goals in each of them. Bernier improves to 26-19-7 with a .923 save percentage and 2.69 goals against average.
Apr 1 - 10:43 PM

Jonathan Bernier will be the Toronto Maple Leafs starter on Tuesday.

Bernier has allowed four goals in each of his last three starts. That's pretty bad, but it's also unsurprising given the team's recent play.
Apr 1 - 12:19 PM

Jonathan Bernier kicked aside 24 shots in Toronto's 4-2 setback to the Red Wings on Saturday night.

When will it end? The Leafs, once easily in a playoff position, have now lost eight games in a row and find themselves on the outside looking in. Without a strong defense, their netminders need to steal games. The problem is, neither Bernier nor James Reimer have been able to do that lately. Bernier has given up four goals in three straight games. He has a 2.70 goals-against average and .923 save percentage.
Mar 29 - 9:55 PM

Jonathan Bernier will be between the pipes for the Leafs on Saturday night.

He was in goal for Friday's 4-2 loss to Philadelphia, so his appearance against Detroit will mark the first time in his NHL career that he's played in back-to-back games in different cities.
Mar 29 - 4:10 PM

Jonathan Bernier believes he is healthy enough to play in back-to-back games.

If that is true, he will be in goal Saturday night against Detroit after facing the Flyers Friday night. We believe the Maple Leafs really have no choice but to start Bernier as their playoff hopes are flickering. James Reimer has been awful this month.
Mar 29 - 11:25 AM

Jonathan Bernier could not help the Leafs’ solve their recent woes, allowing four goals on 29 shots and taking the loss in Philadelphia on Friday.

Bernier has allowed four goals in each of his two games since returning from a groin injury. In Tuesday’s game, he faced 48 shots though, so Friday's game was a lot less reassuring. Bernier and the Leafs will look to rebound in their final eight games tied for the final playoff spot in the East. Bernier is 25-18-7 this year with a .924 save percentage and 2.67 goals against average.
Mar 28 - 10:12 PM

Jonathan Bernier was peppered with 48 shots on Tuesday night, stopping 44 of them but ultimately taking the loss in a 5-3 Maple Leafs defeat to St. Louis.

Bernier did all that he could to weather the storm of one of the NHL’s premier team’s pouring it on the struggling Leafs. Bernier did not play his best, allowing some questionable goals, but ultimately was given no help from his teammates. The good news is Bernier did not seem to be slowed by his injured groin during his busy night. His record drops to 25-17-7 on the season.
Mar 25 - 10:30 PM

Jonathan Bernier (groin) will probably start for Toronto on Tuesday.

That hasn't been confirmed, but Bernier appeared to be preparing to play during the Leafs' Tuesday morning skate. Bernier has missed five straight games and Toronto has not been able to win in his absence
Mar 25 - 12:24 PM

Jonathan Bernier (groin) skated Monday, but it's uncertain if he'll be available to play Tuesday night.

He suffered a bit of a setback on Friday after he pushed himself too hard. The Leafs could use their number one keeper back in order to retain their tenuous wild card spot.
Mar 24 - 1:34 PM

Jonathan Bernier (groin) won't travel with the Leafs to New Jersey for Sunday's game versus the Devils.

James Reimer has picked up four straight losses in Bernier's absence and it's unclear if he'll get the nod against New Jersey. If he doesn't play then Drew MacIntyre may get an opportunity to start.
