AHL playoff MVP Tyler Bertuzzi appears to be ready to make the jump to the NHL next season.
Bertuzzi played with speed and skill in the postseason to help Grand Rapids capture the Calder Cup on Tuesday night. "We call him playoff Bert," goaltender Jared Coreau said. "I don't know if it's just his style of play or his will to win, or his eagerness to win, but he just performs. He performs when it counts. He could have five points throughout the year but then have the playoffs he did. I'd keep him around forever." Bertuzzi generated 19 points in 19 games after he had 37 points in 48 contests during the regular season. He will get a long look at training camp. Jun 14 - 10:58 AM

Speaking to the media, Detroit Red Wings GM Ken Holland said he is impressed with Tyler Bertuzzi's play during the AHL playoffs.

"We've had a lot of players who have played well," Holland said. "You look at Tyler Bertuzzi. He has had a great playoff - he's had three great playoffs in a row. Very impressive statistics for a young player." Bertuzzi failed to pick up any points in seven NHL contest this season, but did pick up 37 in 48 AHL games and another 12 in 12 playoff games so far. Holland will likely have a few holes to fill at the start of next season and Bertuzzi might make a full-time jump to the NHL. He is a name to keep an eye on during training camp.
