Tyler Bertuzzi should know each and every exit and mile marker between Grand Rapids and Detroit on I-96 by now.
The Griffins forward has been recalled by the Detroit Red Wings, again, after Darren Helm suffered an injury this week. Bertuzzi and fellow Griffin Anthony Mantha were called up to the NHL squad earlier this week and both will be with the team this weekend.
After a quick trip back to Grand Rapids for Wednesday’s win over the Texas Stars, Bertuzzi was recalled to the parent club late Wednesday night. He’ll be uni’d up in the winged wheel Friday in the nation’s capital as the Wings face Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals.
