NHL notebook: Leafs, Kings swap backup goalies
Leafs, Kings swap goalies, draft picks
The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired goaltender Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings. The Leafs gave up forward Matt Frattin, backup goaltender Ben Scrivens and their second-round pick in the 2014 or 2015 NHL entry draft. The 24-year-old Bernier played in 14 regular-season games for the Kings in 2012-13 as Jonathan Quick's backup. He wanted to play more, prompting the trade. Bernier's record was 9-3-1. He had a goals-against average of 1.88 and a save percentage of .922.
• The Leafs are expected to buy out defenseman Mike Komisarek, TSN reported. He has one year remaining on his contract. Komisarek was placed on waivers March 20, cleared the next day and played seven games for the Toronto Marlies, the Leafs' AHL affiliate.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
