Things are picking up quick now that the NHL season is officially over.
This morning on the FAN 590 sportsnet insider Elliotte Friedman said the Toronto Maple Leafs have been interested in Detroit Red Wings forward Tyler Bertuzzi for some time now, and that they may make the move this off-season.
The 26 year old forward would be a great fit for the Leafs, he has the attitude of his dad and the scoring ability of a top six forward.
Due to injury Bertuzzi only played 9 games this season but in those games he managed 7 points. Prior to this season, he had back to back 45+ point seasons with detroit.
Bertuzzi signed a one year $3,500,000 deal with the Detroit Red Wings last year and is now an RFA.
