Journeyman Bruno Gervais has signed with Eisbaren Berlin of Germany’s Deutsche Eishockey Liga, the club announced on Monday.

Gervais, 30, spent last season with Colorado’s AHL affiliate in Lake Erie, scoring 13 points in 71 games. Prior to joining the Avs organization, Gervais had appeared in over 400 contests with the Islanders, Lightning and Flyers; his most recent NHL action came with Philly during the lockout-shortened ’13 campaign, when he appeared in 37 games.

Gervais’ best time as an NHLer came on long Island from 2007-10, with his top individual campaign coming in ’08-09 -- he scored a career-high 19 points and averaged over 21 minutes a night.
