For the Week of 10/15/01
Todd Bertuzzi - Vancouver Canucks
Bertuzzi earned himself a 10-game suspension from the NHL on Monday, after he received a game misconduct for leaving the bench and starting a fight during the third period of the Canucks' 4-0 win over Colorado on Saturday night. He came on the ice after Vancouver's Jarkko Ruutu received a major penalty and game misconduct for kneeing Stephane Yelle. The incident escalated after Scott Parker started throwing punches at Ed Jovanovski. Parker was given a minor, major and game misconduct for instigating a fight with Jovanovski.

"I didn't think, I just wanted to get in there and correct it," Bertuzzi said Monday. "I saw what was going on and I just reacted. "I knew the rule, we're given a rule book at the start of the year," he said, adding he would do the same thing again to stick up for a teammate.

"Absolutely, it was one of my teammates and I would do it again. The toughest will be missing the 10 games, especially when I'm healthy."

Bertuzzi's suspension begins with Tuesday night's game against Florida and runs through the Canucks' game against San Jose on November 3rd. He will be eligible to return for a game at Columbus on November 6. The suspensions will cost Bertuzzi $118,556.70 in lost salary, with the money going to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund. The Canucks were also fined $10,000.
