Bertuzzi signed a $1.5 million, 1-year contract Tuesday with Detroit, where the 34-year-old played during the 2006-07 season.
The Red Wings fell one win short of
repeating as Stanley Cup champions in June, then lost Marian Hossa,
Mikael Samuelsson and Tomas Kopecky to free agency.
Bertuzzi scored 15 goals and had 44
points last season for the Calgary Flames. Holland says Bertuzzi's back
problems appear to be over and the team's medical staff was impressed
with his condition during a physical.
