Bertuzzi in Real Trouble

I wrote about Todd Bertuzzi, The Vancouver Canucks right wing and his violence. This time he did something that made me to doubt his sanity. Colorado Avalanche was in Vancouver, the night before as a regular game of NHL season. It was a one-sided game which ended to a 9-2 win for the Avs. Steve Moore, the Colorado Avalanche centre got a heavy punch on his neck, from behind, by Bertuzzi, which made him ended up in a Vancouver hospital with a neck fracture and concussion. Bertuzzi suspended from the game indefinitely. He made an apology to Moore and the public tonight, while standing with his wife and weeping.
NHL officials will announce their decision about him, tomorrow.
Bertuzzi, 6' 3" (1.90 m) and 245 (110 Kg) is originally from Sudbury, Ontario, started his career in 1993 with the N. Y. Islanders.
