Detroit will be his fifth team, after he spent five years with the Kings, three with the Maple Leafs and one with the Ducks before joining the Avs.The Avalanche did not try to keep Bernier after acquiring Philipp Grubauer from the Washington Capitals earlier this offseason.The 32-year-old Green had 33 points (eight goals, 25 assists) in 66 games last season. His season was cut short by a neck injury that required surgery, but he is expected to be healthy for training camp.
