From Curtis Zupke of the Orange County Register:
“In Anaheim I thought it was going to be a good opportunity but I just didn’t fit into the mode there with ice time – playing 10 to 12 minutes a game, it’s kind of hard to perform,” he told reporters.
For the record, Bertuzzi averaged 16:27 of ice time last season. His season was set back by a concussion and recurring symptoms. He finished with 14 goals and 26 assists in 68 games and had two assists in a first round loss to Dallas in the playoffs.

This is going to be Bertuzzi’s last/best chance to re-establish himself as a top power forward, as the big forward will get a lot of ice-time playing for Mike Keenan.
