Season Outlook For Tyler Bertuzzi

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

2019-20 outlook: Bertuzzi’s first full NHL season was a tremendous success. He showed he can be an offensive threat in addition to providing grit, physicality and abrasiveness. He has a knack for being around the puck and he goes to the hard areas, in the corners and in front of the net, making him an ideal complement on the top line with Dylan Larkin and Anthony Mantha.

Bertuzzi has strong hockey sense, the ability to get his stick on pucks on the forecheck and force turnovers. He gets the puck on the net and doesn’t need a high volume of shots to score goals.

A second straight healthy off-season, following two injury-plagued summers, should enable Bertuzzi to gain strength and perhaps get a little quicker.

If TyBert put on ten pounds of core muscle without losing any of his underrated skate speed, he’s gonna star this season.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
