Bert Is Back

from Dave Waddell of the Windsor Star,

Big, bad Bert claims to be not quite as big nor as bad as he’s been made out to be after enjoying his first informal skate with his new Detroit Red Wings teammates Wednesday at City Arena.

A rather chatty Todd Bertuzzi, the six-foot-three forward who has trimmed down to a svelte 225 pounds, dealt with the usual issues of his weight and the ugly Steve Moore incident before moving on to discuss his good health and the opportunity to return to Detroit.

Bertuzzi had a brief stop in Detroit in 2007 after being acquired at the February trade deadline.

“(I’m) really happy to be back, especially knowing pretty much everyone in the room,” said Bertuzzi, who had five goals and 11 points in his 24 games as a Wing coming off back surgery that season.
