Detroit — Tyler Bertuzzi has no hard feeling toward the Red Wings.
Sure, Bertuzzi basically lost his salary arbitration hearing, Tuesday’s decision coming in at a $3.5 million salary for Bertuzzi (he filed for $4.25 million and the Wings $3.15 million), but again, no hard feelings.
There's no disappointment about the arbitration decision, or the fact Bertuzzi and the Wings weren’t able to work out a long-term contract.
“I wouldn’t say disappointed,” Bertuzzi said Wednesday on a Zoom call with reporters. “No, I’m very grateful to get this opportunity and I’m just going to go out and prove myself again this year, like I have been the last few years.
