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

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
