Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier and defenseman Carl Gunnarsson each underwent successful surgeries at the end of the season, the team announced Monday.

Bernier had surgery to repair a sports hernia, while Gunnarsson had hip surgery. They are progressing well and along with forward Joffrey Lupul (knee meniscus surgery) are expected to be fully recovered for the start of training camp in September.

Bernier was eighth in the NHL with a .923 save percentage despite facing the seventh-most shots in the League. He was 26-19-7 with a 2.68 goals-against average in his first season with Toronto.

Gunnarsson, a five-year veteran, played in 80 games and had three goals, 17 points and a plus-12 rating.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
