Bertuzzi hasn't played since February 7th because of a back injury. The Red Wings are on the outside looking in and Bertuzzi's veteran presence should help them vs. the Kings tonight. He has two goals and one assist in seven games this season. Tootoo will likely be a healthy scratch in favor of Bertuzzi.
Red Wings F Todd Bertuzzi does not have mononucleosis, could be back as soon as Friday. Original diagnosis was a false positive.
Good news for Bertuzzi owners because "mono" can be unpredictable, monitor his status going forward as he could be back in the lineup as soon as Friday. Bertuzzi is still only a viable fantasy option in deep leagues.
