Bertuzzi underwent successful back surgery April 30 and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2021-22 campaign, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Bertuzzi was limited to just nine games this season due to his back injury, picking up five goals and seven points over that span, but he should be ready to rock once the 2021-22 campaign gets underway. The 26-year-old forward will be a prime bounce-back candidate heading into next year's fantasy drafts.
Bertuzzi (upper body) won't return this season and may require surgery to address his upper-body injury, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
The Red Wings only have eight regular-season games remaining and aren't going to make the playoffs, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that they've decided to shut Bertuzzi down for the year. The 26-year-old winger had a hot start to the season before suffering his upper-body injury, racking up five goals and seven points through the first nine games of the campaign. He'll remain an attractive fantasy asset heading into 2021-22.
Bertuzzi (upper body) has yet to be cleared to practice, but the Red Wings are still hopeful he'll be able to return sometime this season, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
There's only about a month remaining in the regular season, and Detroit isn't going to make the playoffs, so Bertuzzi will need to begin practicing soon in order to have a shot at returning in 2020-21. The 26-year-old winger racked up five goals and seven points through the first nine games of the campaign before suffering an upper-body injury.
Bertuzzi (upper body) has been skating on his own of late, but he isn't close to returning to practice with his teammates, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
At this point it's looking more and more likely that Bertuzzi will miss the rest of the 2020-21 campaign. The 26-year-old winger picked up five goals and seven points through the first nine games of the season before suffering an upper-body injury.
Bertuzzi is not close to returning from his upper-body injury, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
The burgeoning winger hasn't played since the injury surfaced in a Jan. 30 contest versus the Panthers. While Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill has reported some degree of progress with Bertuzzi -- including being on the ice for solo skates -- he remains without a clear timetable for his return. Detroit currently ranks 30th in the league standings, and the Original Six club is certainly wishing Bert could be out there. After all, he plays in all situations and produced five goals and two assists in nine games prior to the injury.
Bertuzzi (upper body) still hasn't returned to practice and is at least a week away from returning to action, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Bertuzzi has already been sidelined for over two months and his return still doesn't appear to be imminent. The 26-year-old winger picked up five goals and seven points through the first nine games of the campaign before suffering an upper-body injury.
Bertuzzi (upper body) will miss at least the remainder of February, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Bertuzzi won't be available for Detroit's final three games this month, which means he will have missed the entirety of February. The earliest he could return to game action is next Tuesday in Columbus, but it's far from guaranteed that the winger will be ready to play by then.
Bertuzzi (upper body) won't be available for Friday or Saturday's game against the Panthers, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Bertuzzi has been sidelined since late January with an upper-body issue and still hasn't resumed skating, so at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to return. The 25-year-old winger picked up five goals and two assists through the first nine games of the campaign before picking up his injury.
Head coach Jeff Blashill said Monday that Bertuzzi (upper body) hasn't started skating again and will miss the next two games, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Bertuzzi has already missed seven games, and the earliest that he can return is Friday versus the Panthers. Despite missing so much time, Bertuzzi is still tied for the team lead with five goals, supplying two assists and 20 shots on net, as well.
Despite missing the last five games with an upper-body injury, Bertuzzi still leads the Red Wings in goals with five.
Bertuzzi was on a major scoring binge, as he potted all five goals over a six-game span leading up to the injury. Conversely, the Wings have majorly suffered in the attacking zone without him, as the team is now averaging a mere 1.93 goals per contest on the season. A previous report indicated that Bertuzzi might return for Monday's clash against the Blackhawks on Monday, but he'll supposedly miss the next road two contests with the Predators.
Bertuzzi (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
Considering Bertuzzi has already missed the previous five contests, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him on injured reserve. Assuming the club used a retro-active designation to Jan. 30, Bertuzzi can be activated if ready to play when the team returns from its road trip to face visiting Chicago on Monday.
Bertuzzi (upper body) will miss Detroit's upcoming three-game road trip, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Bertuzzi was originally given a 4-6 game timeline but will now be sidelined for a total of seven contests due to his upper-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the 25-year-old winger was rolling with four goals on seven shots, including three power-play tallies, in his previous four contests. With Bertuzzi unavailable, Filip Zadina figures to get the first look at a top-line assignment with Dylan Larkin, though Bobby Ryan and Anthony Mantha could also be in the mix.
Bertuzzi (upper body) is expected to miss Detroit's next four to six games, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Given the expected length of Bertuzzi's absence, it wouldn't be surprising to see him wind up on injured reserve in the coming days. The 25-year-old has been one of Detroit's better forwards this season, having picked up five goals and seven points through nine games, so this is a significant loss for the Red Wings and fantasy owners alike.
Bertuzzi (upper body) won't play in Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Bertuzzi exited early in Saturday's loss to the Panthers, and he wasn't able to make the short recovery. The 25-year-old started the year hot with seven points through the first nine games. His next chance to play will be Wednesday's road game against the Lightning. Mathias Brome will bump up to the top line in Bertuzzi's place.
Bertuzzi (upper body) won't return to Saturday's game against the Panthers.
Bertuzzi exited in the third period and is done for the night. The 25-year-old logged 15:52 of ice time and a goal before departing. His status is highly questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Panthers.
Bertuzzi scored a power-play goal on his lone shot in a 7-3 loss to Dallas on Thursday.
Bertuzzi swatted a rebound out of mid-air at 7:26 of the third period to draw the Red Wings to within 4-2. It was the fourth goal of the season for Bertuzzi, all of which have come over the last five games. He's done his best work on the power play, where he's lit the lamp three times this season. A 20-goal scorer in each of the previous two seasons, Bertuzzi is one of the few reliable offensive producers in the Detroit lineup.
Bertuzzi scored two power-play goals in Sunday's 6-2 loss to Chicago.
The 25-year-old supplied all the offense on the afternoon for Detroit, but it wasn't anywhere near enough. Bertuzzi is seeing career highs in ice time both at even strength and with the man advantage to begin the season, and he has three goals and five points through six games as he looks to record his third straight 20-goal campaign.
Bertuzzi scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blue Jackets.
Bertuzzi was listed on the fourth line as head coach Jeff Blashill shuffled his lines ahead of Tuesday's contest. The 25-year-old winger still skated 18:18, setting up Anthony Mantha for a power-play goal in the second period. Bertuzzi struck quickly in overtime, notching the winning tally just 15 seconds into the extra period. His usage will likely remain in a top-six role, making Bertuzzi a solid choice for fantasy managers in deeper formats. He has three points, nine shots on goal and four hits through four outings.
Bertuzzi picked up an assist Saturday, en route to a 4-2 win over the Hurricanes.
Bertuzzi's secondary apple counts as his first point of the young season. After registering a career-high 48 points (21 goals, 27 assists) in stark contrast to Detroit's horrendous 2019-20 campaign overall, Bertuzzi went through salary arbitration and ultimately settled on a one-year, $3.5 million pact to stay put in Motown. The talented winger figures to be a mainstay on the top line and No. 1 power-play unit for the foreseeable future.
Bertuzzi will get a one-year, $3.5 million contract with Detroit as a result of his arbitration hearing, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
While it's not the $4.25 million Bertuzzi's camp hoped to get, it's still a significant raise for the winger compared to the $1.4 million he earned in 2019-20. The 25-year-old Ontario native should be capable of reaching the 20-goal threshold for the third straight season and should push for the 50-point mark, as well, making him a top-half fantasy option.
