Panthers acquire Reto Berra from Colorado in exchange for Rocco Grimaldi

The Florida Panthers have acquired goalie Reto Berra from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for center Rocco Grimaldi.

What It Means:

Berra will be the Panthers' backup netminder behind Roberto Luongo, filling a need. Berra was surplus in Colorado as he'd fallen behind Semyon Varlamov and Calvin Pickard on the depth chart. He posted a .922 save percentage in 14 appearances last year.

Grimaldi, 23, totaled three goals and two helpers in 20 contests. He was the 33rd overall pick in 2011.
