Tyler Bertuzzi Has The Mindset Of A Hockey Player

10/01/2018 at 2:25pm EDT

from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound, 23-year-old native of Sudbury, Ontario, looks a bit bigger this season.

Unfortunate with some injuries, Bertuzzi’s development has been set back. This could be an important season, especially given his role.

“I’m going to play the same way I’ve been playing for a long time, and a lot of these young guys are pushing for spots,” he said. “So, you’ve got to be on top of your A-game.

“You’ve got to show what you can bring to the table, every night.”...

“Three, four months of training really hard. I came into camp. I felt good.

“I gained a couple pounds of muscle,” he said. “I feel way better out there. Stronger, faster.”

The Red Wings hope the difference in performance helps fill the breach, with Henrik Zetterberg’s departure and several consecutive seasons of a roster in flux impacting the lineup.

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.
