Jonathan Bernier (born August 7, 1988 in Laval, Quebec) is a Canadian professional goaltender currently playing for the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League (AHL). He was drafted in the first round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, 11th overall, by the Los Angeles Kings.
Jonathan represented Canada at the 2006 World Under-18s in April, which were held in Sweden. He was invited to the 2007 Canadian World Junior selection camp but lost out to Montreal Canadiens prospect Carey Price and Calgary Flames prospect Leland Irving.
On September 29, 2007, Bernier was given the starting role for the Kings in their 2007–08 NHL season debut game versus the Anaheim Ducks in London, England. He allowed one goal on 27 shots, earning the win by the final score of 4–1, while being named the second star of the game.
The first goal to be scored on him in the QMJHL was by his brother, Marc-André Bernier, at the Halifax Metro Center on September 24, 2004. The goal was in the first period at 15:39. It was Jonathan's first ever QMJHL game.
