Coach Jeff Blashill has known Bertuzzi for a long time and has seen the evolution from a brash, glove-dropping forward to a skilled player who is difficult to play against.
"I was happy for Tyler," Blashill said. "He's had a good year, obviously, from a statistical standpoint but I also think he's continued to grow as a hockey player. I think last year he took some big steps and he's getting rewarded for that with the All-Star berth. So I think that's great. I think it's a great experience for him. He'll be around some great, great players and that's always a good thing."
Bertuzzi had career bests in goals (21) and assists (26) in 73 games last season, his first full year in the NHL, but appears poised to surpass those numbers.
"This year I think you see him carrying the puck more," Larkin said. "He's not just hanging at the net. For a guy like me, I've spent more time at the net. His game is evolving. He's not just a net-front guy. He's making plays and making them all over the ice."
