Knee surgery cut rookie OHL season short, but rebounded nicely in his sophomore season.
3rd round (68th overall), 2004 2007-08: Berti did a lot of traveling during the season, as he saw time in the ECHL, AHL and NHL. However, most of the season was spent in Rockford, where he recorded seven points and a career-high 68 penalty minutes in 42 regular season games. Berti made his NHL debut with Chicago on April 4 and scored his first professional post-season goal on May 9 with the Rockford IceHogs.
Berti has good size and will use his body to protect the puck, but needs to start using it to go get the puck by knocking opponents off of it. He can score almost at will at the ECHL level. Needs a chance at the AHL level to do the same.
Berti possesses the size to be an effective power forward but needs to regain the scoring touch from his junior days if he is going to make it.
