Todd Bertuzzi Guelph Storm Player Card

Todd Bertuzzi Guelph StormI stumbled across this retro Todd Bertuzzi trading card. Yeah, randomly.

Bertuzzi spent four seasons with the Guelph Storm before moving up to the New York Islanders in 1995. In his final season with Guelph he set the club's all-time single season goals record with 54 - which is also his personal best with any team since 1990-91.

This card is from the 1992-93 season. In 1993-94, Bertuzzi notched 28 goals and a total of 82 points in 61 games with the Storm.

Hopefully Bert can officially get back into sniping form with the Red Wings this season. I have no clue how healthy he is, but he appeared in all 82 games last year with Detroit, so that's a good sign. He's 35, but he is in great shape. Just needs to get the hands working again. I have faith in this guy. He could really help make Detroit's second line the deadliest in the league.

Once a goal scorer, always a goal scorer.
