When he was selected by the Los Angeles Kings 11th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Jonathan Bernier was touted as a future star. Unfortunately Bernier never managed to reach the levels of success he did during his junior career. Bernier would go onto have an extremely respectable career in the NHL after some early struggles.

Bernier played 14 seasons with 6 different teams, but today he made the decision to officially hang up his pads. Bernier took to his Instagram this morning to make the announcement.
After fourteen years, it's time for me to hang up the pads. @lakings, @mapleleafs, @anaheimducks, avalanche, @redwings and @njdevils enough for giving me the opportunity to play in the best league in the world and in front of the best fans in the game. There are no Words to express my gratitude to everyone who has been part of my hockey journey since day one, without all of you couldn't have done it.

To my lovely wife, kids and family, thank you for always being by my side through the ups and downs. You have always supported me and helped me achieve my childhood dream and be my biggest fans.

Now I'm heading into the next chapter of life - retirement.


Bernier ends his career having played 404 games with the LA Kings, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, Anaheim Ducks, Colorado Avalanche and New Jersey Devils. Bernier finishes his career with a record of 165-163-40.
Congratulations on a great career Jonathan Bernier.
