Today in NHL History – March 11


 

2004 – Todd Bertuzzi (Vancouver Canucks) was suspended by the NHL for hitting Steve Moore (Colorado Avalanche) in the side of the head from behind and driving his head into the ice in a game on March 8. Moore landed face-first with Bertuzzi on top of him. Moore suffered a broken neck, a concussion and deep cuts on his face. The NHL suspended Bertuzzi for the remainder of the regular season and the playoffs and announced that his eligibility would be assessed the following season and would take into account Moore’s health and the progression of his recovery. The Canucks organization was also fined $250,000.
