The Florida Panthers have acquired Reto Berra from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Rocco Grimaldi.
And just like that, the Panthers have their backup goaltender. Berra couldn't stick with the Avalanche in the NHL for the entire 2015-16 campaign, but that was due to a mixture of injury woes and Calvin Pickard's ascent rather than him struggling on the ice. When Berra did play for Colorado he posted a 2.41 GAA and .922 save percentage in 14 games. He has one season left on his three-year, $4.35 million contract. Jun 23 - 3:14 PM

Reto Berra cleared waivers on Monday ahead of the trade deadline, and has been reassigned to AHL San Antonio.

Berra has seen just 18 games this season mostly due to injury. He's posted a 5-8-0 record with a .922 save percentage and a 2.41 GAA in 14 games with the Avalanche.

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 get the nod for Colorado in Wednesday's game versus Pittsburgh.

Berra made 27 saves in a 2-1 win against New Jersey on Dec. 1 in his last outing. He has a .927 save percentage and a 2.26 goals-against average in 13 appearances this season along with five wins. Coach Patrick Roy said that Semyon Varlamov will play at Nashville on Saturday.

Reto Berra stopped 27 of 28 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 win over New Jersey.

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.
Tue, Dec 1, 2015 05:07:00 PM

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.
Thu, Nov 26, 2015 01:03:00 AM

Reto Berra was blasted for four goals on 11 shots in the Avalanche’s 7-3 loss to the Capitals on Saturday night.

Take the tape and throw it out. Berra lasted one period before hitting the showers for Calvin Pickard, who made 18 of 21 saves. Berra has given up four goals in three games in a row. He has a 2.43 GAA and .923 SV%. Pickard has given up four goals on 25 shots this season.
