Red Wings’ Bertuzzi Benched For 2 Games For Punch From The Bench

Zetterberg did play in all 82 games for Detroit last season, but it was a tough task to enable he could do so.

It's unclear how he injured his hand.

It all started when Calvert was hit into the Red Wings' bench, resulting in several players grabbing hold of him and restraining him from getting back into the play.

"We want to make sure we're sticking up for each other". The 23-year-old has 16 points (nine goals) in 27 games this season and will be eligible to return to the lineup on Saturday night against the New York Islanders. Of course you should stick up for your teammates, otherwise you're never winning. "That's just the reality of it".

During Sunday's contentious win over the Red Wings, Detroit forward Tyler Bertuzzi - nephew of Todd Bertuzzi, infamous for his brutal on-ice attack of Colorado's Steve Moore in 2004 - punched Matt Calvert from the bench as Calvert tried to retrieve his stick.

That's easy to say in the calmness of the dressing room but as anyone who's been there and done that knows, much harder to do in the heat of the moment. We should note, Bertuzzi has never been suspended by the National Hockey League. "It was stupid on my part but again, it happens fast, so I can learn from it and move on. There were nights I didn't think he'd able to play and he did play".
