Column: Red Wings Must Re-sign Bertuzzi This Summer or Trade Him | DHN+



Tyler Bertuzzi, Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wings are trying to re-sign Tyler Bertuzzi and Dylan Larkin this summer

Tyler Bertuzzi is a 30-goal scorer. He’s a belligerent player, always frustrating to play against. Whenever there’s trouble on the ice, Bertuzzi is first in line. Bertuzzi is tough and fearless. He’s is character. Funny. Over-the-top. Crazy. On a podcast, Red Wings forward Oskar Sundqvist called Bertuzzi a “hillbilly goofball.”

He means that as a compliment. Sundqvist enjoys Bertuzzi’s personna. Without question, Bertuzzi is one of the more popular players in the dressing room.

Bertuzzi contributes in a variety of ways to the Detroit organization. He has such a unique skill set that it would be impossible to replace him.
