Leafs obtain G Bernier in deal with Kings

The SportsXchange

The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired goaltender Jonathan Bernier in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings for forward Matt Frattin, backup goaltender Ben Scrivens and the Leafs' second-round pick in the 2014 or 2015 NHL entry draft.

TSN reported Sunday that the Kings also received $500,000 from the Maple Leafs in the deal.

Bernier, 24, backed up starting goalie Jonathan Quick this season with the Kings and played in 14 regular-season games, posting a 9-3-1 record with a 1.88 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage.

Bernier, who is a restricted free agent this summer, has pushed for a trade since last season because he wants a chance for more playing time. In Toronto, he will compete for the No. 1 goaltender job with James Reimer.

Frattin had seven goals and eight assists in 25 games for the Maple Leafs this season.

Scrivens likely would step into Bernier's backup role with the Kings next season. Scrivens logged a 7-9-0 record with a 2.65 GAA and a .915 save percentage during the 2013 regular season for Toronto.
