25-Year-Old Left WingLW
Detroit Red Wings
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bertuzzi enjoyed a stellar 2018-19 campaign, with the fiery winger amassing 21 goals, 26 assists and a team-best rating (plus-11) through 73 games. Of course, Bert's shooting percentage of 16.0 was another mark that his teammates couldn't contend with. Expect a steady uptick in ice time for the Ontario native compared to the 15:19 he's averaged through the first 128 games of his NHL career. His abrasive style makes him a multi-zone menace, plus the 24-year-old's been exhibiting a greater sense of patience and maturity on and off the ice to the benefit of fantasy owners abound. Look for him near the middle rounds of drafts ahead of the 2019-20 season. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Red Wings in October of 2020.
Awarded $3.5 million deal
LWDetroit Red Wings
October 27, 2020
Bertuzzi will get a one-year, $3.5 million contract with Detroit as a result of his arbitration hearing, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
ANALYSIS
While it's not the $4.25 million Bertuzzi's camp hoped to get, it's still a significant raise for the winger compared to the $1.4 million he earned in 2019-20. The 25-year-old Ontario native should be capable of reaching the 20-goal threshold for the third straight season and should push for the 50-point mark, as well, making him a top-half fantasy option.

A wrist injury spoiled Bertuzzi's chances of cracking the Opening Night roster with the Red Wings last season, but the agitating scoring winger climbed aboard the AHL-to-NHL express in December and never looked back, crafting seven goals and 17 assists over 48 games. The NHL's Department of Player Safety is kept busy due to “act first, think later” players like Bertuzzi. While he only registered 39 PIM as a rookie, Detroit's 2013 second-round (58th overall) draft pick is still learning what constitutes a good penalty in the eyes of head coach Jeff Blashill. Still, if Bertuzzi keeps a level head in the upcoming season, he should reprise his top-six role and continue receiving power-play chances. Expectations for the Ontario native hit a new level in late June when he procured a two-year, $2.8 million contract extension.
It's no fluke that Bertuzzi was named the MVP of the Calder Cup playoffs. His solid 12 goals and 37 points in 48 regular-season games were overshadowed by a 19-point postseason for the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins. Bertuzzi’s ability to kick it up a notch when it mattered most certainly raised eyebrows in the Red Wings’ front office, making him a serious contender for a spot on the Opening Night roster. Still, his call-ups were uneventful in 2016-17, as he scored zero points in seven games. The 21-year-old plays a lot like his uncle, retired Red Wing Todd Bertuzzi, in that his game is characterized by fiery aggression and keen awareness of his surroundings -- but he’s better at staying out of the penalty box (37 PIM in the AHL last year). The youngster will have plenty of opportunities to prove his worth in Motown even if he fails to make the team right out of training camp.
To some degree, Bertuzzi is following in the footsteps of his Uncle Todd. Both started their careers with the Guelph Storm of the OHL and have spent time within the Red Wings’ organization. Todd wrapped up his 18-year NHL career -- his last five seasons were spent with Detroit -- a year before the club selected his nephew with a second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. At 21 years old, Bertuzzi is a menacing winger with a second home in the penalty box. This past season, while playing for AHL Grand Rapids, he racked up 133 PIM in 71 games, far and away the highest total on the team. When he’s not warming the sin bin, Bertuzzi is a threat to score. He dropped 43 goals in 68 games with the Guelph Storm of the OHL in 2014-15, and thrived in the 2016 Calder Cup Playoffs, leading the Griffins with seven scores in nine contests. Bertuzzi will compete for a roster spot right of training camp. If the pest doesn’t break camp, he’ll likely be a top call-up option when injuries threaten the crop of more seasoned forwards.
Mostly known as the nephew of teammate Todd Bertuzzi, Tyler broke out for 34 points in 29 games with the Guelph Storm of the OHL last season and earned himself a second-round pick with Detroit. He's still a raw talent, but Detroit likes his abrasive and physical style of play for the future. Give the younger Bertuzzi a few years, and he may make a similar impact in the NHL to that of his uncle.
