Former Pilots Winger Berti Gets Weekend Call To NHL
CHICAGO, IL - For the second time this season, an Ice Pilots player received a call to the National Hockey League. On Friday, Adam Berti was given the opportunity to make his first NHL appearance.
He played two games, skating on Friday night and Sunday for the Chicago Blackhawks. On Friday in a 3-1 win over the Nashville Predators, Berti had 14 shifts, playing ten minutes and 29 seconds for the Blackhawks. Yesterday in a 4-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings, Berti had nine minutes and 45 seconds of ice time on 12 shifts, including 23 seconds of power play time. He registered one shot in the game.
Berti skated in four games with the Ice Pilots this season; scoring five points (2g-3a). He spent the majority of the season in Rockford where he played in 42 games, scoring 7 points (2g-5a) with 68 PIM.
The 21-year-old native of Scarborough, ON is in his second professional season after spending last year with the Blackhawks top affiliate in Norfolk, VA. Berti follows Mike Brodeur as he was the first Ice Pilot this season to put on a Blackhawks sweater.
