Bernier,Gunnarsson have off-season operations but will be ready for Leafs' camp

TORONTO - Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier has undergone successful sports hernia surgery and will be ready for the start of training camp.

The team released the update Monday.

Bernier missed five games in March due to the injury. He aggravated it April 3 versus the Boston Bruins and had to miss the remainder of the season.

Bernier posted a 26-19-7 record in his first season with Toronto. He also had a 2.68 goals-against average and .923 save percentage.

The Maple Leafs also said defenceman Carl Gunnarsson has undergone successful hip surgery and both he and forward Joffrey Lupul (knee meniscus surgery) will also be ready for training camp.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
