Bertuzzi is still awaiting word from NHL commissioner Gary Bettman on whether his suspension will be lifted. He was suspended for the remainder of the 2003-2004 season after the vicious hit on Moore. The Canucks won the Northwest Division in 2003-2004, but lost in the first round in 7 games to the Calgary Flames. In addition, Bertuzzi was not selected to Canada's World Cup team.
There's certainly going to be more on this story as the weeks go on.
