Bernier played in 38 games last year for the Toronto Maple Leafs with a .908 save percentage and a 2.88 goals against average. The trade was made possible, after the July 1st bonus (two million dollars) was paid out by the Leafs. Anaheim will now be on the hook for just 2.15 million in salary for the upcoming season.
Originally acquired from the Los Angeles Kings, in 2013, for Matt Frattin, Ben Scrivens, and a 2nd rounder in 2015 entry Draft.
Bernier has a career save percentage of .915 and a save percentage of 2.67 between the Maple Leafs and LA Kings organizations.
Given every opportunity to succeed in this marketplace, Bernier never assumed the role as a true #1 goalie with the Maple Leafs and was replaced this summer by the acquisition of Frederik Andersen.
