Todd Bertuzzi has been known for being a power forward during his time with the New York Islanders, Vancouver Canucks, Florida Panthers, Anaheim Ducks, Calgary Flames and his current team, the Detroit Red Wings.
Bertuzzi will be remembered for an incident during a Canucks-Colorado Avalanche game.
Avalanche forward Steve Moore previously injured Canucks captain Markus Naslund after checking him in the head. He was not penalized for the hit, as it was deemed a legal hit.
However, Bertuzzi decided to retaliate on his own in a rematch between the two teams less than a week later.
The Canucks team had played Moore hard that game, with Matt Cooke fighting Moore just a few minutes into the game.
Later on in the game, Bertuzzi wanted to challenge Moore to another fight. Moore was ignoring Bertuzzi, so Bertuzzi skated up behind Moore, sucker-punched him and fell on top of him to the ice.
Moore was severely injured and later pursued legal action against Bertuzzi.
