Todd Bertuzzi scores twice lifting the Ducks over the Wild

Todd Bertuzzi scored twice, Ryan Getzlaf had three assists, and Anaheim's streaking top line lifted the Ducks to a 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Friday.

Corey Perry scored his 26th goal, and the Ducks won their season-high seventh straight game after surviving a second-period surge by the Wild. Since luring defenseman Scott Niedermayer out of semiretirement and trading for veteran center Doug Weight, Anaheim is 12-2-2, the AP reports.

Todd Bertuzzi is a Canadian professional ice hockey player in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Anaheim Ducks.

On June 23, 2006, Bertuzzi was traded to the Florida Panthers along with Bryan Allen and Alex Auld in exchange for Roberto Luongo, Lukas Krajicek and a sixth-round draft pick.

Bertuzzi scored a goal in his Panthers debut vs. Boston on October 6, 2006. Experiencing back spasms early in the 2006 season, Bertuzzi opted for surgery on November 2, 2006 that would sideline him for at least twelve to sixteen weeks. On December 6th, 2006, Bertuzzi was given medical clearance to begin skating. His debut goal was the only one he ever scored for the Panthers.

On February 27, 2007 Bertuzzi was traded to Detroit for prospect Shawn Matthias and conditional draft picks.

On July 2, 2007 Bertuzzi signed with the Anaheim Ducks as an unrestricted free agent for 2 years / 8 million (US). This reunites him with his General Manager, formerly of Vancouver, Brian Burke.

Bertuzzi was controversially selected to play on the Canadian national men's hockey team at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Turin, Italy. His inclusion, along with that of Dany Heatley and Shane Doan, was discussed at length by the Canadian Olympic Committee. The committee had concerns stemming from the Steve Moore incident and Bertuzzi's probationary status, but subsequently approved his representation of Canada at the Olympic games. According to a CP article .

Bertuzzi posted 3 assists and a +1 rating in 6 games. However, Team Canada failed to advance past the quarterfinals and finished the Winter Olympics in 7th place overall, a severe disappointment for a team with high expectations.
