Detroit Red Wings forward Tyler Bertuzzi is expected to be sidelined six weeks after undergoing surgery on his left hand, coach Derek Lalonde said on Friday.
Bertuzzi sustained the injury after being hit by a shot from teammate Ben Chiarot late in the third period of Detroit's 5-4 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday.
Bertuzzi, 27, missed a month of action after breaking his right hand in the second game of the season. He has four points (one goal, three assists) in nine games in 2022-23.
Bertuzzi has 192 points (85 goals, 107 assists) in 285 career games since being selected by Detroit in the second round of the 2013 NHL Draft.
He is the nephew of former NHL player Todd Bertuzzi.
