Jonathan Bernier Signing Is Official In Colorado

DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed goaltender Jonathan Bernier to a one-year contract for the 2017-18 season.

Bernier, 28, appeared in 39 games for the Anaheim Ducks this past season, posting a 21-7-4 record with a 2.50 goals-against average and .915 save percentage.  The Laval, Quebec, native compiled a 12-1-2 record over his final 15 starts, with his 12 wins leading all NHL netminders from March 1 until the end of the season.  Bernier was named the NHL’s Second Star of the Week for March 6-12 after going 3-0-0 with one shutout, a 1.62 GAA and .948 SV% in three games.  He had a career-high scoreless streak of 125:41 during that stretch from March 7-12.  The 6-foot, 184-pound goaltender went on to appear in four playoff contests for the Ducks, including one start (1-2-0, 3.28 GAA).

“Jonathan is a proven NHL netminder who brings experience to our goaltending position,” said Avalanche Executive Vice President / General Manager Joe Sakic. “He is coming off a strong season with the Ducks, and we look forward to having him and Semyon Varlamov as our goalie tandem this season.”
