Avs acquire Berra from Flames
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Colorado Avalanche has acquired goaltender Reto Berra from the Calgary Flames in exchange for a 2014 second-round draft pick.

Berra, 27, has appeared in 29 games for the Flames this year, posting a 9-17-2 record with a 2.95 goals-against-average.

The Bulach, Switzerland native represented his country at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia last month, posting a 0-1 record with a 1.02 GAA in one start for the Swiss.

"With this acquisition we feel we have further solidified our goaltending situation, for the present and future," said Avalanche EVP of Hockey Operations Joe Sakic. "He has already shown he can be successful at the NHL level and we are excited about what he can bring to our team."

Selected by St. Louis in the fourth round (106th overall) in the 2006 Entry Draft, Berra was acquired by Calgary on April 1, 2013. The 6-foot-4, 194-pound netminder had spent his entire career in Switzerland prior to this year.
