Red Wings F Bertuzzi out 4-6 weeks
Detroit Red Wings forward Tyler Bertuzzi is expected to be sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks due to an upper-body injury, head coach Derek Lalonde told the media on Monday.
Bertuzzi left Saturday's win over the New Jersey Devils in the second period after blocking a shot.
The 27-year-old native of Sudbury, Ont., is in his seventh season with the Red Wings after Detroit selected him in the second-round, 58th overall, of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Bertuzzi had a career season in 2021-22, netting 30 goals and adding 32 assists over 68 games.
