Avalanche sign C Mitchell to 3-year extension; sign G Berra to 3-year deal

DENVER - The Colorado Avalanche have reached three-year deals with centre John Mitchell and goalie Reto Berra.

Mitchell signed a $5.4 extension, and Reto inked a $4.35 million deal, the Avalanche said Friday.

Mitchell, 29, signed a free-agent deal with Colorado in July 2012. He has seven goals and 16 assists in 65 games this season.

Colorado acquired the 27-year-old Berra from Calgary on March 5 for a second-round draft pick. Berra, who represented Sweden in the Sochi Olympics, was 9-17-2 in 29 games for the Flames.

Berra is scheduled to make his Avalanche debut on Wednesday at Winnipeg.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
