Leafs' Jonathan Bernier to have sports hernia surgery

The Toronto Maple Leafs have announced that primary goaltender, Jonathan Bernier will undergo surgery on Wednesday to repair a  sports hernia.

Bernier has been suffering from the injury for a few weeks. He was able to play through the injury and even said, "I felt pretty good,"  "It was sore but my range, my stretching was fine. I think a lot of players play through that."

Bernier is expected to miss, 2-3 weeks to recover from the surgery. He is also missing three weeks with a sprained MCL (which caused him to miss the last few games of the season) Bernier said he will recover from the injuries and be 100% ready to go at the start of training camp in September.
The season ended for the Toronto Maple Leafs, but it seems that Team Canada for the World Hockey Championship may have to rely on a different goaltender until Bernier is healthy.

Bernier had a 26-19-7 record this season with a 2.68 goals-against average.

All time he has a record of  117 NHL regular-season contests, Bernier is 55-39-13 with a 2.51 GAA, .918 save percentage and seven shutouts.
