Bertuzzi gets probation in Moore attack

Dec. 23, 2004 at 4:45 PM   |   Comments

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Vancouver Canuck star Todd Bertuzzi was given a year's probation after pleading guilty to assaulting Steven Moore of the Colorado Avalanche during a game.

Bertuzzi was also banned from playing any games against Moore during his probation, but that could be a moot point since Moore is without an NHL contract and still has health issues from the assault.

Bertuzzi also was ordered to perform 80 hours of community service.

If the conditions of his probation are met, Bertuzzi will avoid a criminal record for the March 8 hit that left Moore with three broken vertebrae and a concussion.

Now that the criminal trial is over, the CBC said Bertuzzi can seek to have his playing status reinstated by the NHL so he can start playing in Europe.
