The Wheel Deal

ST. LOUISTodd Bertuzzi did not participate in Tuesday’s morning skate at Scottrade Center. The Wings’ forward has been battling a sinus infection and vertigo-like symptoms that have forced him to sit out the last four games.

Until this current illness, Bertuzzi had played in 197 out of a possible 198 games – regular-season and playoffs – since coming back to the Wings in 2009-10. Only captain Nicklas Lidstrom, who hasn't missed a game since then, has played more.

Bertuzzi has skated just once – last Thursday for half of practice – since Nov. 3. The dizziness and loss of balance has also limited any off-ice workouts that he can do, though he did manage to squeeze in some off-ice work the last two days.

“The medication is starting to kick in,” Bertuzzi said, Tuesday. “Hopefully within the next little while I can try to start skating and take it from there.

“I haven't missed games in a while. It's not fun missing games, but you can't go out there and play at 50-60 percent. What good are you? Kind of take a step back and get myself healthy and start over.”
