The Detroit Red Wings drafted Tyler Bertuzzi in the second round (58th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Bertuzzi is in his third year with the Guelph Storm and it was looking to be a breakout season for Bertuzzi by putting up 35 points in 29 games this season with Guelph, but another injury has cut his season short.
According to the Guelph Mercury:
The injury has not been diagnosed as a concussion. It involves head and neck issues with some concussion-like symptoms. He has missed 15 games to date.
That quote was from January 23rd and he has not played another game with the Storm since the injury occurred.
He suffered similar symptoms last season and missed 25 games, but those injuries were the result of fights, an area where Tyler Bertuzzi is not at his best.
According to reports, Tyler Bertuzzi has packed up his gear and looks to be done for the season with the Guelph Storm, but he is on his way to Detroit.
Tyler Bertuzzi has gone to Detroit to be checked out by Red Wings medical staff.

The medial team in Detroit will have their hands full trying to figure out the cause of Tyler’s symptoms, but the Red Wings have plenty of resources at their disposal and will do everything within their power to heal mini Bertuzzi.
Hopefully, the Wings staff will be able to help Tyler Bertuzzi return form his injury, while giving him tips on how to avoid or help prevent future symptoms as well.
This is not the first time Detroit has taken an interest in helping a prospect with an injury and it will not be their last.
