Tyler Bertuzzi on the trade block?

Detroit Red Wings Tyler Bertuzzi
NHL trade rumors for August 27, 2022 feature the Detroit Red Wings considering trading forward Tyler Bertuzzi.

NHL trade rumors have been circulating lately that the Detroit Red Wings had been looking to trade Tyler Bertuzzi this summer.

Now that teams have filled out their rosters and salary cap space is limited, a Bertuzzi trade will likely not happen until some point during the NHL season.

Bertuzzi is coming off a stellar 2021-2022 campaign were he put up 62 points (30g, 32a) in 68 games.

Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now reports with Bertuzzi entering the final year of his contract, he is looking for a big pay day and a long-term deal and that is something the Red Wings are not willing to do.

Back at the 2022 NHL trade deadline, Bertuzzi stated, “100%” I want to stay in Detroit. I want to be a Red Wing.” But money talks and if there is a team out there willing to give Bertuzzi the big pay day, he will likely not re-sign and be a 2023 NHL trade deadline deal.

Bertuzzi, 27, was drafted 58th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2nd round of the 2013 NHL entry draft.

Over a career that spans 6 seasons, he has a total 188 points in 276 games played.

  1. I think this is short and sweet and to the point. They both would like to get a deal done, but talk is cheap and money talks. He wants a max deal they won’t do it so odds are he gets moved. Simple
