The Malik Report

The CBC's Michael Drapack reports that Steve Moore's civil suit against Todd Bertuzzi will go to trial next year, but until Bertuzzi retires, you can expect the trial date to continue to be rolled back:
It will be more than 10 years since Todd Bertuzzi attacked Steve Moore, but a new court date for Moore's civil suit against Bertuzzi has been set.
The trial will begin on Sept 8, 2014, and is scheduled to last three months before a jury.
On March 8, 2004, Bertuzzi, then playing for the Vancouver Canucks, drove Moore, then playing for the Colorado Avalanche, to the ice with a punch during an NHL game. Moore suffered three fractured vertebrae and hasn't played since.
Bertuzzi is in his fifth season with the Detroit Red Wings.
Moore filed this lawsuit in 2006. He's seeking $38 million.

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
