DENVER (AP) The Colorado Avalanche added another forward by picking up Rocco Grimaldi from the Florida Panthers for goaltender Reto Berra.

The 23-year-old Grimaldi scored three goals and had two assists in 20 games for the Panthers last season. He spent a majority of the season with Portland of the American Hockey League.

Grimaldi was a second-round pick by Florida in 2011.

By dealing Berra, the Avalanche solved a logjam in goal for next season. The team already has Semyon Varlamov and Calvin Pickard.

Berra had a 2.41 goals-against average in 14 games last season with the Avalanche, before an ankle injury in December sidelined him. Berra was sent to San Antonio of the AHL for a conditioning assignment on Feb. 18 and remained there for the rest of the season.
