Playing career

Berry was drafted 55th overall in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche. He played the majority of his first 3 pro seasons in the American Hockey League with the Hershey Bears. In his first full season with Colorado he played 57 games before he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 19, 2002 with Ville Nieminen for Darius Kasparaitis.[1] He didn't last long in Pittsburgh, as he was claimed by the Washington Capitals in the Waiver Draft later that year.[2]

In 2006 he signed with the New York Islanders as a free agent but never played for the team suiting up for the Islanders affiliate Bridgeport Sound Tigers. In the 2007–08 season unable to find a NHL club, Berry signed with the Springfield Falcons of the AHL.[3] In 197 career NHL games Berry has scored 2 goals and 13 assists for 15 points, while accumulating 314 penalty minutes.
