Don't expect to see Reto Berra tend net for the Panthers so long as Luongo is healthy and good.

Florida plays just twice more after tonight, on Monday the 23rd against Arizona and finally on Thursday the 26th against Tampa Bay before the All-Star break hits. Of course things are subject to change, but that's more than enough time for Luongo to get his rest and lead the team.

Reto Berra has been summoned by the Florida Panthers.

James Reimer is with his wife for the birth of their child. Berra will probably end up serving as the backup goalie on Friday.

Florida has Reto Berra on waivers.

If he clears he is expected to start the year in the minors. Berra slit time with the Avalanche and the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL last year. He was very good for Colorado in 14 appearances, posting a 2.41 GAA and a .922 save percentage.

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.

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 (ankle) is slated to miss about 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.
