Adam Berti (born July 1, 1986) is a former Canadian ice hockey player, having played his final year in the NHL with the Chicago Blackhawks during the 2007-2008 season. Drafted 68th overall by the Blackhawks in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Berti played two more seasons in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), finishing off his final year with the Erie Otters after being traded by the Oshawa Generals following three years of service. His production dipped when comparing to his time with Oshawa, but Berti still posted career numbers with 63 points in 62 games.
Joining the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League (AHL), Berti registered six goals and six assists in 48 games during his rookie season. While his offensive awareness didn’t translate through too well, Berti’s scrappy style and physical play made him well-liked in the organization, enough to earn a two-game stint in Chicago the following season. He failed to record anything on the scoresheet and was quickly demoted back down to the AHL. After posting seven points in 42 games, he was demoted once more to the Pensacola Ice Pilots of the ECHL.
His progression continued to spiral downwards as the following season, he played more time in the ECHL than he did in the AHL, and was later traded to the Gwinnet Gladiators, the ECHL affiliate of the Ottawa Senators. By the 2009-10 season, Berti became a full-time ECHL player, appearing in 66 games with the Gladiators and recording 16 goals and 57 points. With no interest from NHL clubs and a lack of desire to pursue his career overseas, Berti retired at the conclusion of the season.
