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

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
