You’d be hard pressed to find a negative article on new Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier. He was a consummate professional during his time as a member of the Kings organization.
So it’s no surprise that as today wore on and the news of his departure from LA began to spread, several of his now-former teammates took to twitter to send out some goodbye messages. Take a look…
Sucks to see Bernie go but I am so pumped for his opportunity in Toronto he’s gonna kill it!!

And from Strength and Conditioning Coach Ryan van Asten:
Sad to see Bernier go. He’s a great talent and even better guy. All the best with the @MapleLeafs, I know he’ll bring success there.

If you somehow missed it, GM Dean Lombardi held a conference call today as well, covering a myriad of topics like usual – including why Bernier was dealt to Toronto, the ‘assets’ he received back from the Leafs, changes to Willie Mitchell’s health, talks with Dustin Penner’s agent, negotiations with Bud Holloway and a potential new contract for Rob Scuderi.
