What I’ve learned so far… by Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier

Sorry ladies, he’s off the market now. Kings goaltender Jonathan Bernier was recently engaged, so he still has plenty to learn in the coming years.

A happy wife is a happy life – that’s all I’m saying JB.

However, at the rink and around his teammates he’s already picked up on a few things so far this season.

For starters, he learned that Terry Murray doesn’t change his mind easily. The Kings’ coach went through with his plan to play Bernier vs. New Jersey last week, even though many in the media and plenty of fans thought he was crazy for resting Jonathan Quick after he shutout three straight opponents.

Murray offered up his reasons here. Yet, that logic didn’t seem to fly with most people, including former Kings coach Barry Melrose – who told NHL Live he would have never made such a move, regardless of what was told to a player ahead of time.

As for some other nuggets of info he’s learned over the past month or so, here’s what Bernier he had to say…

About Dustin Brown – “He’s the type of guy you call a ‘nerd.’ He likes computers and all that electronic stuff. I always knew he was kind of like that. But, then we went to Europe, I sat with Brownie and we chatted a bit. Now I know for sure.”

About Simon Gagne – “He seems quiet, but he’s a pretty funny guy. It’s great to have another French guy on the team too. It’s nice to make jokes that somebody actually really understands!”

About Mike Richards – “Great team guy, obviously he was the captain in Philly. He’s a funny guy too. He’s really quiet. But, when he has time to joke around, he’ll do it.”

About Jack Johnson – “He drives a Ferrari now.”

About Drew Doughty – “He missed all of training camp (he laughs). And he’s rich (more laughter).”
