Tyler Bertuzzi will not play for Grand Rapids in the AHL playoffs.
Bertuzzi was the Most Valuable Player of the AHL postseason last year. "The positive in this case is he gets at least an extra month of getting after it in training," coach Jeff Blashill said. "My (advice) to him was you have to get bigger, stronger, faster. Find a strength and sprinting coach that can help you do those things. Get a skating coach that is going to help you get that much quicker. If he can do those things, he'll be that much a better player next year." Bertuzzi generated 24 points in 48 games with Detroit in 2017-18, with five of his seven goals coming in the team's final eight games. Apr 27 - 9:31 AM

Tyler Bertuzzi received praise from coach Jeff Blashill following Monday's 4-2 loss to Montreal.

"Tyler was a real bright spot again," Blashill said. "That line was great. Tyler does all those things that it takes to be a real good hockey player. I think he's going to be a real good player here for a number of years to come. He goes to the net hard, he gets the dirty type goals that we have to score more of. He blocks shots." Bertuzzi scored his fourth goal of the season in the defeat and he added an assist in the contest. He also amassed 12 penalty minutes late in the third period.

Tyler Bertuzzi notched a career-high three assists with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal across 19:27 of ice time in Monday's 5-3 loss in San Jose.

Bertuzzi has picked up seven assists over his past seven games, and could be a huge piece of the rebuilding process in the Motor City. His ice time also marked a career best. At this point he is a decent buy-low option in deeper fantasy pools, and he might not be a bad stash in dynasty formats.

Tyler Bertuzzi had two assists in Tuesday's 6-5 OT loss to the Boston Bruins.

Tomas Tatar's trade to Vegas on Monday will move Bertuzzi back into Detroit's top-six forward. "When Tyler first came up and there were injuries, I thought he played very, very well. He slipped a little bit and opened the door for some guys to take his spot and then didn't get much of an opportunity," coach Jeff Blashill said. "I think all Tyler needs, in my opinion, is an opportunity and he's going to get that." Bertuzzi had been playing on the fourth line.

Tyler Bertuzzi may get a larger role on Detroit's power play.

Tyler Bertuzzi was assessed a five-minute penalty and a match penalty for slashing on Friday night.

The Red Wings were up 5-2 in the second period when Bertuzzi was assessed the major penalty, but the Islanders scored four times on the ensuing power play to go ahead 6-5. The Wings managed to tie the game, but eventually lost in overtime. "Heat of the moment and I turned and slashed," Bertuzzi said. "I don’t think it deserved a five. A two-minute penalty, but not a five. It was more or less sticking up for myself and not taking stuff from anyone. A young guy in the league, in the heat of the moment, obviously I regret it. But in the end of the day, I don’t think it was a five-minute penalty."
Feb 10 - 9:28 AM

Jan 15 - 10:18 AM

Detroit plans to keep Tyler Bertuzzi for the rest of the season.

Bertuzzi was told to get a place to stay, as the Red Wings have liked what they have seen from the 22-year-old forward since he was called up a couple of weeks ago. "He's one of those real good complementary wingers," coach Jeff Blashill said. "He can play with two skilled guys, he can be the guy that is a real hard forechecker, he can be the guy who is real hard at the net, but he's got a good skill set to go along with it. He can score, he can do all those things, so you don't lose any of that skill set with him." He has been skating alongside Henrik Zetterberg and Gustav Nyquist lately. Bertuzzi has contributed three assists in the last three games. He is still looking for his first NHL goal, though.

He can be a good piece to a puzzle and I'm hoping he can be a good piece on that line. He's the type of player we need. I like having him in the lineup." Bertuzzi is also projected to see time on the power play Friday night.
