The Toronto Maple Leafs signed goaltender Jonathan Bernier to a two-year contract worth $5.8 million Friday.

Bernier was acquired in a June 23 trade with the Los Angeles Kings for winger Matt Frattin, backup goalie Ben Scrivens and a second-round draft pick in either 2014 or 2015 – the Leafs have the choice of which year to give up the pick.

The former 11th-overall pick from the 2006 NHL Draft has played in 62 career regular-season games generating a 29-20-6 record with a .912 save percentage, 2.36 GAA and six shutouts.
