Bertuzzi Hasn’t Put it Behind Him

From Bob Duff at Duffer’s Dabbles,

Former Detroit Red Wings forward Sheldon Kennedy looks at Todd Bertuzzi and sees himself in Bertuzzi’s eyes and facial expressions. Kennedy thought when he went public in 1996 with details of how he was sexually abused by Graham James, his junior hockey coach, it would set him free, but it took years of dealing with the issue and confronting how it had impacted his life before Kennedy could move beyond the pain.

Though’s he not spoken to Bertuzzi, the ex-Wing who comes to Joe Louis Arena Wednesday with the Anaheim Ducks, Kennedy believes that Bertuzzi is still battling his inner demons over the hit he put on Windsor’s Steve Moore of the Colorado Avalanche in a 2004 game, a sucker punch from behind that to date has shelved Moore’s NHL career.
