Bertuzzi (leg) was placed on seven-day injured reserve Monday, The Detroit News reports.

Bertuzzi is one of eight Red Wings currently on injured reserve. The best teams find a way to fight through that adversity -- Tampa Bay's 2015-16 squad is a perfect example -- but to some degree, the injury pile helps explain why Detroit's club has struggled to a 4-5-1 record over the last 10 games. Tomas Jurco, who had offseason back surgery, just received a recall from AHL Grand Rapids following a conditioning assignment, so he'll essentially replace Bertuzzi in the bottom six.
