Generals sign veteran goalie BY CRAIG T. GREENLEE

Greensboro News & Record
July 12, 2002

A day after naming their new coach, the Greensboro Generals acquired a seasoned goaltender as their first signee for the 2002-03 East Coast Hockey League season.

Daniel Berthiaume, who played seven of the last eight seasons with the ECHL's Roanoke Express, signed on Thursday. Contract terms were not disclosed.

The 16-year veteran played eight seasons in the NHL with the Winnepeg Jets, Minnesota North Stars, Los Angeles Kings, Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators. Berthiaume (pronounced BERTH-ee-ohm) recently became a free agent when the Express released him.

"I'm definitely excited to be here," said Berthiaume, who recorded 22 wins with Winnipeg in 87-88, and 20 wins with Los Angeles in 90-91. "I'm looking forward to playing for (coach) Rick Adduono.

"This is a big challenge. But I believe we can climb the mountain and have a winning team here."

Berthiaume, 36, ranks among the the top five goalies in ECHL history in games played (258), wins (142), goals against average (2.66) and save percentage (.913).

"This shows our fans that we're serious about what we're doing," said team president Rocco Scarfone. "We're- starting off. (signings) right where we need to start - with the goalie. This coming season, we're going to put a vastly different product on the ice."
