Bertuzzi will be invited to the 2019 IIHF World Championship as a member of Team Canada, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
Even though it was too little, too late for the Red Wings, Bertuzzi caught fire late in the season, as the hard-nosed winger went four straight games with three points apiece and finished with 21 goals and 26 helpers through 73 contests. Additionally, Bert earned 1:43 of average ice time on the man advantage and compiled six points in that key special teams spot. He was rather clutch based on four game-winning tallies, and No. 59 topped all of his teammates with a plus-11 rating and a shooting percentage of 16.0. There's tremendous fantasy upside with Bertuzzi, so consider nabbing him in the middle-to-late rounds of season-long drafts in the fall.
Bertuzzi scored a pair of goals -- including one on the power play -- and added an assist in a 4-1 victory against the Penguins on Tuesday. According to Helene St. James of the the Detroit Free Press, he set a franchise record with his fourth consecutive multi-point game.
The 24-year-old has posted five goals and 12 points over the heater -- with four of those taking place on the man advantage -- as Bertuzzi looks to be one of the best value options in fantasy down the stretch. Matt Murray nearly robbed Bert of his power-play goal Tuesday, but the replay showed the puck crossed the goal line inside Murray's glove. The top-six winger has 21 goals and 47 points with a plus-14 rating in 71 games this season.
Bertuzzi posted a trio of helpers in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Bruins.
Bertuzzi's line with Anthony Mantha and Dylan Larkin combined for 10 points in the contest. Bertuzzi has three goals and six assists in his last three games, giving new meaning to ending the year on a high note. He's up to 44 points (19 goals, 25 assists) in 70 games this season.
Bertuzzi scored a goal and two assists in Friday's 4-0 win over the Devils.
He helped set up the Wings' first two goals of the night before striking for his 19th goal of the season late in the third period. Bertuzzi now has back-to-back three-point performances to push him to his first career 40-point campaign, and he'll have four more games on the schedule to find goal No. 20 as well.
Bertuzzi scored two goals and added an assist in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Sabres.
The second goal was the winner. Bertuzzi has four points in his last two games. And 38 points, including 18 goals, in 68 games this season. That means Bertuzzi has some fantasy value in deep formats.
Bertuzzi registered an assist and three shots in Monday's 3-2 win over the Sharks.
Bertuzzi is up to 35 points (16 goals, 19 helpers) in 67 games, skating on the top line in recent games for the rebuilding Red Wings. The second-round pick from 2013 is still only 24 years old and could become a solid 50--plus-point producer in the next two or three years.
Bertuzzi scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Flyers.
After missing seven games with an upper-body injury, Bertuzzi returned to action Saturday and picked up right where he'd left off when he got hurt. He now has four goals and eight points in his last seven contests dating back to Jan. 12, and on the season, the 23-year-old has a respectable 14 goals and 30 points in 50 games.
Bertuzzi (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. As a result, expect him to play against the Flyers in Philadelphia on Saturday.
Bertuzzi's activation comes at a good time, as the Red Wings will need to rest Frans Nielsen (illness) for the first of two games against the Flyers this weekend. Bert has compiled 13 goals on a tremendous 17.6 shooting percentage to go along with 15 helpers through 49 games in his third NHL season (technically his second as a full-timer).
Bertuzzi (upper body) figures to be available for Saturday's game against the Flyers, according to Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill.
Detroit's next transaction likely will involve removing Bertuzzi from injured reserve, with another player getting bussed to AHL Grand Rapids. The Red Wings lost three of seven games without the grinder available.
Bertuzzi (upper body) could be ready to play the Flyers over the weekend, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
The Red Wings have a road game scheduled against the Flyers on Saturday and then they'll return home to face them Sunday to complete the back-to-back set. Detroit waived Martin Frk on Wednesday to pave the way for Bertuzzi's return.
Bertuzzi (upper body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
It's already been determined that Bertuzzi will not return until Thursday at the earliest, and by placing the mettlesome winger on injured reserve, the Wings were able to activate defenseman Trevor Daley (foot) for Tuesday's game against the Predators.
Bertuzzi (upper body) is expected to miss at least two more games, the Associated Press reports.
This means Bertuzzi will be targeting a return for Thursday's home game against the Senators. Detroit's 2013 second-round (58th overall) draft pick hasn't played since Jan. 22, which was prior to the NHL's All-Star break.
Bertuzzi (upper body) is listed as a scratch for Saturday's game against the Sabres, per the NHL.com roster report.
Bertuzzi is rounding out his recovery from an upper-body injury, with this being his fourth consecutive absence. He's undergone cognitive tests and previous reports have suggested that he may be dealing with a neck issue.
Bertuzzi has undergone a cognitive test as well as a test on his neck, according to Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
While the Wings reportedly aren't too concerned about Bertuzzi's status, the fiery winger will miss Thursday's game against the Golden Knights, and the team has yet to provide a concrete timetable for his return. He isn't on injured reserve, though, so there is at least a glimmer of hope that he'll be ready to go Saturday against the Sabres.
Bertuzzi (upper body) was unable to take the ice for Wednesday's practice, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
Having already missed the past two games, the fact that Bertuzzi is unable to practice casts serious doubt on his availability for Thursday's game against Vegas. With a young player like Bertuzzi, the Red Wings might be taking a cautious approach to make sure the winger doesn't withstand a more serious injury.
Bertuzzi (upper body) wasn't on the ice for practice Tuesday, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
Bertuzzi's next opportunity to play will arrive Thursday against the Golden Knights. The agitating winger missed the last two contests with the streaky Red Wings actually managing to win each of those -- including Friday's 3-2 home win over the Maple Leafs. Typically, an injured player must prove that he can withstand contact in a practice before obtaining medical clearance to return; it should be no different for Bertuzzi.
Bertuzzi will miss a pair of games this weekend due to an upper-body injury, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Bertuzzi reportedly will be reevaluated over the weekend, when his teammates will have to make do without the physical scoring winger in Friday's game against the Maple Leafs and Saturday's clash with the Senators. The third-year winger has 13 goals and 15 assists to complement a plus-7 rating over 49 games, so his absence is rather significant. Unless the Wings promote a player from AHL Grand Rapids, they might have to pull Martin Frk away from the press box.
Bertuzzi scored his first career hat trick in Saturday's 5-2 win over Minnesota.
Bertuzzi got things started just 24 seconds into the first period before scoring two more in the third. It was a big breakout game for the 23-year-old who had just one goal over his previous 18 contests. He's up to 13 goals and 25 points this season, already surpassing his total of 24 last season.
Bertuzzi has recorded one goal and five assists -- all at even strength -- over the past 15 games.
Bertuzzi has been on the top line with Dylan Larkin and Gustav Nyquist, but the winger doesn't seem to be playing with a sense of urgency. The Wings are the bottom dwellers of the Atlantic Division, and it's time for Bert to start outgrowing his reputation as an immature player. He carries plenty of offensive potential as a second-round pick (2013), but Larkin -- with 41 points in 46 games -- has nearly twice as many points than his top-line cohort from the left wing. It certainly would help if Bertuzzi could be more efficient on the power play.
Bertuzzi delivered an assist in Thursday's 4-1 road win over the Hurricanes.
Bertuzzi scored in the first game of December, only to be held pointless in four consecutive outings around a two-game suspension. The enigmatic winger is back in a groove with three assists over the last four, but Bert isn't shooting all that much -- only 47 shots in 34 games -- and there are concerns that his 19.1 shooting percentage is unsustainable. Take what you can get from the 23-year-old as he continues to learn the nuances of the NHL game.
