Jonathan Bernier trade: Leafs acquire goalie for Matt Frattin, Ben Scrivens and a draft pick

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The first big trade of the off-season is between Toronto and Los Angeles.

The Stanley Cup Final hasn't even ended yet, and we've already seen our first big move of the 2013 off-season.

In a trade announced Sunday afternoon by president/general manager Dean Lombardi, the Los Angeles Kings have acquired forward Matt Frattin, goaltender Ben Scrivens and a second round draft selection from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for goaltender Jonathan Bernier. The pick will be in either 2014 or 2015 and given away at Toronto's discretion.

Bernier, a backup goaltender who many feel has paid his dues behind Jonathan Quick and is ready to be a starter, has a career record of 29-20-6, with a .912 save percentage and 2.36 goals against average. Toronto, however, is a very confusing destination, as James Reimer is coming off an excellent season. Reimer was 19-8-5, with a .924 save percentage and a 2.46 goals against average.

Frattin, a 25-year-old right wing, showed some potential offensive pop this season, with seven goals and 13 points in 25 games. He gives Los Angeles depth down the wing, which is something the team wanted in this trade. Scrivens also allows them to keep a decent backup goaltender. He went 7-9-0 with a .915 save percentage and a 2.69 goals against average last season.
