ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Goalie Reto Berra has signed with the Anaheim Ducks, returning to North America less than three months after agreeing to a three-year deal with Fribourg-Gotteron in his native Switzerland’s top league.

Berra used an out clause in his Swiss deal to return to the NHL on Wednesday.

The Ducks gave a one-year deal to Berra, who will provide organizational depth behind John Gibson and new signee Ryan Miller.

Berra played seven games for Florida last year, spending much of the season in the AHL. The 30-year-old veteran has appeared in 71 NHL games over five seasons with Colorado, Calgary and the Panthers.

Berra signed with Fribourg-Gotteron in April after four seasons in North America. Berra played from 2009-13 for Switzerland’s EHC Biel, which currently employs longtime Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller.
