LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to terms on a three-year entry-level contract with goaltender Jonathan Bernier, the club's first-round selection (11th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Terms of the agreement were not announced.

Bernier, 18, was the highest ranked North American Goaltender in the 2006 Draft, and he also was one of two Kings first-round draft choices (the Kings selected forward Trevor Lewis as the 17th overall choice) this past July. Lewis agreed to a three-year entry level contract with the Kings in July.

Bernier has appeared in eight regular season games this season with Lewiston of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) and has a 4-3-1 record, one shutout, a 2.73 goals-against-average and a .881 save-percentage.

The 5-foot-11, 177-pound native of Laval, Quebec, played in 54 regular season games last season with Lewiston and had a 27-26-0 record, two shutouts, a 2.70 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage. In addition, Bernier had a 2-4 record, a 2.84 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage in six playoffs games last season.
