Kukla's Korner Hockey

Todd Bertuzzi is back. Deal with it. Of all the story lines crossing and crisscrossing the new NHL landscape, few have or will continue to evoke the kind of visceral response that Bertuzzi's return to the game has. As it should be. His shameful attack on Steve Moore on March 8, 2004, has exacted a terrible toll on everyone connected to the incident, from Moore and his family, to Bertuzzi and his own loved ones, to the Canucks and to the entire game itself. On Monday, before or after the first on-ice session for players being considered for Canada's Olympic team, the disgraced power forward is expected to make his first public statements since being reinstated by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. This will mark the first time he has publicly discussed any of the events that have unfolded apart from the brief, teary media apology two days after the hit. It will mark a seminal moment in this tawdry, unfortunate tale.
