The deal announced Monday puts Bernier under contract through the 2012-13 season. He had one year left on his current contract. He'll earn $975,000 in 2011-12 and $1,525,000 in 2012-13 for a total of $2.5 million, a source told ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun on Monday.
The 23-year-old goalie split time last season between the AHL's Manchester Monarchs and the Kings.
He appeared in three regular-season games with Los Angeles, going 3-0-0 with a 1.30 goals-against average, a .957 save percentage and one shutout. He's appeared in seven total NHL games with the Kings.
