from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
There are no more questions whether Tyler Bertuzzi will begin the season in the minor leagues or with the Red Wings.
Any more question of that was squashed around the middle of last season. That’s when Bertuzzi was promoted by the Wings and said farewell to Grand Rapids with an impressive, prolonged NHL debut.
Bertuzzi showed the type of versatility and know-how that could make him a valuable NHL player for a long time.
“I left last season confident in my game and myself,” said Bertuzzi, 23, who scored seven goals with 17 assists (24 points) with the Wings in 48 games. “I felt good toward the end of the season, scoring on my chances. I’m just going to be hopeful to take that into this year and start playing confidently, and we’ll see how it goes.”
