Goaltender Jonathan Bernier announced his retirement Monday after 14 NHL seasons with six teams.
Bernier, 35, did not play during the 2022-23 season due to a hip injury.
He last played for New Jersey in 2021-22, posting a 4-4-1 record with a 3.06 goals-against average and a .902 save percentage in 10 games.
"It's time for me to hang up the pads," Bernier posted on social media. "I can't thank the Los Angeles Kings, Toronto Maple Leafs, Anaheim Ducks, Colorado Avalanche, Detroit Red Wings and New Jersey Devils 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 I couldn't have done it."
The Los Angeles Kings drafted the Quebec native in the first round (11th overall) in 2006. He won a Stanley Cup with the Kings as the backup to Jonathan Quick in 2012.
Bernier went 165-163-40 with a 2.78 GAA, a .912 save percentage and 18 shutouts in 404 regular-season games (363 starts) with the Kings (2007-13), Toronto (2013-16), Anaheim (2016-17), Colorado (2017-18), Detroit (2018-21) and New Jersey. He was 2-5 with a 3.35 GAA and an .885 save percentage in the postseason.
