Leafs say goalie Bernier has groin strain, believed to be day-to-day

TORONTO - Toronto goaltender Jonathan Bernier has a groin strain and is "believed to be day-to-day," the Maple Leafs said Monday.

The team posted an update on Bernier from head coach Randy Carlyle on its Twitter account.

The injury was revealed when Bernier underwent an MRI earlier Monday.

Bernier left Thursday's game against the Kings and was replaced by James Reimer, who stopped every shot he faced to pick up the 3-2 victory.

Bernier has a 25-16-7 record with a 2.64 goals-against average, a .925 save percentage and a shutout in his first season with Toronto.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
