Bertuzzi signs two-year contract to stay with Red Wings


Tyler Bertuzzi signed a two-year contract to remain with the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The 26-year-old forward was a restricted free agent.

Bertuzzi scored seven points (five goals, two assists) in nine games last season and missed the final 47 games because of a back injury. He had surgery and is expected to be ready for the start of the season.

Selected by Detroit in the second round (No. 58) of the 2013 NHL Draft, Bertuzzi has scored 126 points (54 goals, 72 assists) in 208 games with the Red Wings.

Bertuzzi was awarded a one-year, $3.5 million contract in salary arbitration Oct. 27, 2020 after he scored an NHL career-high 48 points (21 goals, 27 assists) and was selected to play in the 2020 NHL All-Star Game.
