Tyler Bertuzzi had a strong showing with the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins.

Bertuzzi was assigned to the squad after completing his campaign with the OHL's Guelph Storm. He scored a goal in two regular season games before recording another seven goals and 12 points in 13 playoff contests. "Bert has been really good," Griffins coach Jeff Blashill said. "He's come in and he's another guy whose game fits the playoff type of hockey that we're in. He wins puck battles, he goes to the net hard, and he has the ability to play with good players. He's been giving us a lot of everything." Detroit typically likes to allow its players to get plenty of seasoning in the minors before allowing them to play regularly at the NHL level, but Bertuzzi will still be worth keeping an eye on during training camp.

Tyler Bertuzzi is getting to skate with his uncle Todd at Detroit's training camp.

Tyler is the son of Todd Bertuzzi's sister, Angela, and he was chosen by the Red Wings in the second round of the 2013 draft. "It was a neat experience, for sure," Todd said. "He looked pretty good out there. Sometimes when you're younger, you get running around a little bit, but I thought he had some nice plays and did well." It would be nice to see them play on the same line during the preseason. Tyler will likely be back in the OHL this season.
