In 1995–96, he played his rookie season with the Islanders. After two-and-a-half seasons with the club, he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks, his longest tenured team in the NHL. He enjoyed the most successful seasons of his career with the Canucks, being named a First Team All-Star in 2003.

In March 2004, Bertuzzi became infamously known for injuring Colorado Avalanche forward Steve Moore. He was suspended by both the NHL and International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) before being reinstated in August 2006. Legally, he was conditionally discharged in a British Columbia court and was sued by Moore in both Colorado and Ontario.
