Tyler Bertuzzi Placed On IR

12/01/2022 at 6:27pm EST

DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings today recalled center Austin Czarnik from the American Hockey League's Grand Rapids Griffins and placed left wing Tyler Bertuzzi on injured reserve.


The Wings had an off day today so I imagine Lalonde will have an update on Bertuzzi tomorrow.


Jordan Oesterle on the first quarter of the season.


Not a good contract year for Bert. 


The problem is we will  not be able to trade him and probably lose him for nothing.


Hate to see it happen in a contract year in the prime of his career, but on the bright side maybe this gives the wings a better chance of bringing him back on a one/two year deal or sign him to a lower AAV on a longer deal. 


Bert will come back in Jan, get his legs (and hopefully scoring touch) by TDL time. Teams know who he is and his style, so I imagine we'll find a buyer for a decent, if not mind blowing, trade. 

I don't see signing him at all right now, tho. But maybe this does tank his contract leverage and we keep him, tho we do need room in the top 6. Berggren needs to stay up, and there are some good looking kids in GR (and Europe) who should get a shot next year.


He had looked like he had been skipping leg day for a while now before the injury.  Hope he can turn it around.


Bert is the living embodiment of the phrase: "If it wasn't for bad luck, he'd have no luck at all."
