A pair of top minor league performers are headed to Switzerland, as HC Fribourg-Gotteron announced deals for Reto Berra and Andrew Miller. Both players are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents this summer.
Berra, the third goaltender for the Anaheim Ducks, actually got into five games at the NHL level this season and posted a .926 save percentage. The 31-year old is returning home after five years bouncing around the NHL, including stops in Calgary, Colorado and Florida. In 76 appearances he posted a .905 save percentage, but had trouble locking down a full-time role recently.
Miller on the other hand has spent the last two seasons exclusively in the minor leagues, racking up 52 points this season for the Charlotte Checkers. That was good enough for third on the club, and he was a big part of their three game sweep in the first round of the AHL playoffs. Though not specified, Miller will likely finish out the playoffs with the Checkers before jumping to the NLA next season. Charlotte begins their second round series on Friday.
