Devils' Jonathan Bernier: Injury situation clarified
Bernier is dealing with a hip injury that reportedly could have long-term ramifications, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
The fact that Lindy Ruff expressed that he was "worried and concerned" regarding the long-term health of Bernier doesn't bode well for him to be back anytime soon. The 33-year-old netminder is sporting a 0-3-1 record and 3.82 GAA in his last five appearances. At this point, fantasy players probably should consider finding alternative options between the pipes.... See More ... See Less

The Devils placed Bernier on injured reserve with a lower-body injury Friday.
It's not yet clear how severe the injury is and how long the 33-year-old might be sidelined. Thus far in 2021, Bernier has posted a 3.06 GAA and .902 save percentage in 10 games. Akira Schmid joins the Devils from AHL Utica to serve as the backup.... See More ... See Less

Mackenzie Blackwood replaced Bernier against the Jets on Friday and also had rough go at it, with a pair of goals slipping past him on eight shots.

Devils' Jonathan Bernier: Makes 14 saves in relief
Bernier stopped all 14 shots he faced after replacing Mackenzie Blackwood in the second period of Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Panthers.
Bernier made a relief appearance for the second consecutive game, though Blackwood's exit was performance-related this time after the starter was pulled due to a suspected concussion Sunday. While Bernier stabilized things in New Jersey's net, the damage had already been done, as the Panthers had taken a 4-1 lead that they wouldn't relinquish by the time Bernier came in just before the game's halfway mark....

Devils' Jonathan Bernier: Makes relief appearance
Bernier stopped eight shots in relief of Mackenzie Blackwood (head) in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers.

In the shootout, Bernier slipped up, allowing four goals on seven attempts to take the loss. The 33-year-old has been capable in net so far with a 4-2-1 record, 2.68 GAA and .910 save percentage. Should Blackwood miss any additional time, Bernier would likely handle the No. 1 job in net.... See More ... See Less

Boston's final goal was scored into an empty net. It's the second time in his last three starts Bernier has been beaten four times, and the 33-year-old sports a 2.80 GAA and .906 save percentage on the season. With Mackenzie Blackwood back in action and coming off a shutout of the islanders, Bernier will likely settle into the No. 2 role for the Devils.... See More ... See Less

Bernier will guard the home goal during Saturday's matinee matchup with Boston.
Bernier was solid in his last start last Saturday against the Sharks, stopping 25 of 27 shots en route to a 3-2 victory. The 33-year-old goaltender will attempt to pick up his fifth win of the season in a home matchup with a Bruins team that's 1-4-0 on the road this year.... See More ... See Less

Bernier turned aside 25 of 27 shots in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Sharks.
Janne Kuokkanen tied the game in the final three minutes of regulation, and Bernier was able to hold the fort from there to earn his fourth win in five games. The 33-year-old has a 2.55 GAA and a .910 save percentage this season. With Mackenzie Blackwood back in action, Bernier is unlikely to see much more than a 50-50 split going forward, though he could settle in as one of the better backups in the league.... See More ...

Devils' Jonathan Bernier: Taking on Sharks

Mackenzie Blackwood made his season debut Friday against the Kings, and Bernier will handle the second half of the back-to-back set.

Bernier has won all three of his appearances this year, posting a .923 save percentage. He'll be backed up by Mackenzie Blackwood (heel), who is in the lineup for the first time this season. With Blackwood nearing a return to play, Bernier's playing time is likely to go down soon.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jonathan Bernier: No help in loss
Bernier gave up four goals on 27 shots in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Ducks.
The Ducks struck twice on the penalty kill, once while shorthanded and once at even strength, while the Devils couldn't do anything against John Gibson. Bernier took his first loss of the season, dropping to 3-1-0 through four appearances. The 33-year-old has been solid so far, but Mackenzie Blackwood (heel) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday and should soon take over as the No. 1 goalie. Expect them to split a back-to-back when the Devils visit the Kings on Friday and the Sharks on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jonathan Bernier: Returning Saturday versus Penguins
Bernier (lower body) led the Devils onto the ice and will start Saturday's road game versus the Penguins, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Bernier has missed the last three games due to injury. He won his first two starts of the year, allowing just five goals on 56 shots in victories over the Blackhawks and the Kraken. Bernier will face a tough test Saturday as Sidney Crosby (wrist) and Jeff Carter (COVID-19 protocols) are returning for the Penguins.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jonathan Bernier: Wins in return from injury
Bernier (lower body) made 33 saves in a 4-2 win over the Penguins on Saturday.
Bernier had missed three games with a lower-body injury and looked sharp, and especially in Sidney Crosby's first game of the season. Bernier is a sneaky fantasy pickup and play. The Devils are a solid team and starter Mackenzie Blackwood, currently out with an injury, may be on a short leash. Bernier has proven he can stop a load of pucks from his experience in Detroit. We recommend you get him on your roster if he's still out there.... See More ... See Less
