Tyler Bertuzzi, Red Wings await salary arbitration decision

Detroit – So now, everyone waits.

The Red Wings and forward Tyler Bertuzzi had their salary arbitration virtual hearing Sunday, moving one step closer to determining how much Bertuzzi will be paid for the 2020-21 regular season.

The Wings are proposing $3.15 million, while Bertuzzi is asking for $4.25 million. Bertuzzi will get a big raise under either figure, as he made $1.4 million last season.

Bertuzzi, 25, led all Wings with 21 goals last season (the second consecutive season Bertuzzi reached 21), while also earning a career-high 48 points (27 assists).
