Veteran netminder Bernier retires after 14 NHL seasons

Veteran netminder Bernier retires after 14 NHL seasons

Jonathan Bernier is hanging up his pads after 14 NHL seasons, the netminder announced Monday.

“There are no words to express my gratitude to everyone who has been part of my hockey journey since Day 1, without all of you, I couldn’t have done it,” he wrote on Instagram.

Bernier spent the entire 2022-23 season on long-term injured reserve due to a hip injury. He joined the New Jersey Devils in 2021 on a two-year, $8.25-million contract but only appeared in 10 games with the club.

The Los Angeles Kings drafted Bernier with the 11th overall pick in 2006. The 35-year-old played five seasons in Hollywood before stints with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Anaheim Ducks, Colorado Avalanche, and Detroit Red Wings.

Bernier appeared in 404 games throughout his career, earning 165 wins while posting a .912 save percentage.
