Colorado Avalanche sign goaltender Jonathan Bernier to a one-year deal

KUSA - The Colorado Avalanche have a replacement for recently departed goaltender Calvin Pickard. 

The team announced Saturday that the club has signed former Ducks movie goalie Jonathan Bernier to a one-year contract. 

He'll join goaltender Semyon Varlamov to make up the team's tandem of net protectors on the roster. 

Bernier played in 39 games last year for the Ducks, notching a 2.50 goals-against average on his way to a 21-7-4 record in front of the net. 

The veteran--who was drafted with the 11th overall pick in 2006--won a Stanley Cup with the Los Angeles Kings in 2011 when he was the backup to Jonathan Quick. 

Arguably his best year came with the Toronto Maple Leafs during the 2016-17 season, when he won a career-high 26 games.
