Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier tests groin for first time since injury

TORONTO - Maple Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier returned to the ice Wednesday and went through some light work for the first time since suffering a groin injury last week in Los Angeles.

Bernier stepped on midway through the team's optional morning skate at Air Canada Centre and did some exercises moving side to side and up and down to test his groin.

He took a few shots and then consulted with team trainers at the Leafs' bench.

It's unclear when Bernier might return. A source told The Canadian Press last week that the injury wasn't considered very serious, but given the nature of groin injuries, the team is taking precautions.

James Reimer, who entered the Kings game in relief of Bernier, lost to the Capitals and Red Wings to close out the road trip.

Reimer was not on the ice for the morning skate, though AHL call-up Drew MacIntyre was.

It was expected that Reimer will start Wednesday night's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, but that was not confirmed.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
