The Colorado Avalanche waived Reto Berra on Sunday.

Berra is still down with AHL Lake Erie on a conditioning stint, so while they subject Berra to be claimed by anyone in the league, this is simple manipulation of finances ahead of the trade deadline. Berra carries a $1.45M cap hit for one more season.

Reto Berra (ankle) has been sent to the minors for conditioning.

Berra hasn't played since Dec. 9, so it's not surprising that the Avalanche would want him to shake off the rust before returning. Berra has a 2.41 GAA and .922 save percentage in 14 contests this season.

Reto Berra (ankle) has been sidelined for longer than the Avalanche expected.

"Yesterday he skated a bit, and his ankle was sore," coach Patrick Roy said Tuesday. "I'm not saying it's a setback, but at the same time, it might take a bit longer than we thought." Berra suffered an ankle injury back on Dec. 21 and it was initially thought that he would miss just 10 days.

Reto Berra made 29 saves in a 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

Berra got the start in this game but it sounds like Semyon Varlamov will get the start on Saturday against the Predators. He has 5-8 record with a 2.41 GAA and .922 save percentage in 14 appearances. These are better numbers than Varlamov so it's a situation worth keeping an eye on if you own either.

Reto Berra will be in goal for Colorado Tuesday against New Jersey.

Semyon Varlamov was beaten four times on 27 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Islanders on Monday, so Berra will get the nod in the second game of the back-to-back situation. Berra has lost his last four outings, including last Wednesday's relief appearance against Ottawa when he stopped 12 of 13 shots.

Reto Berra made 12 saves in relief action during Colorado's 5-3 loss to Ottawa on Wednesday.

Berra was called into action early in the second period and held his team in the game, allowing just the one goal. The Avalanche goaltending situation just has not been a strong one so far and we are likely to see Berra in more games as head coach Patrick Roy finds something that works.
