Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier to undergo sports hernia surgery

TORONTO - Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier will undergo surgery to repair a sports hernia.

He will have the operation Wednesday.

Bernier missed five games in March due to the injury.

He then aggravated the problem April 3 against the Boston Bruins and finished the season on the sidelines.

Bernier was 26-19-7 with a 2.68 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage this season.

The Leafs missed the playoffs after posting a dismal 6-14-2 record down the stretch.

The injury likely means Canada will not be able to call on Bernier for next month's world hockey championship in Belarus.

Quote of the Day

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
