DetroitRedWings.com’s Dana Wakiji examines Tyler Bertuzzi’s 2018-2019 season’s significant statistics today:
100 — On Jan. 12 at Minnesota, Bertuzzi played in his 100th career game, a 5-2 victory.
1 — Bertuzzi made his 100th game a very memorable one, scoring his first career hat trick. He scored the first goal of the game 24 seconds into the first period, assisted by Gustav Nyquist and Dylan Larkin. Bertuzzi then scored the final two goals of the game, 47 seconds into the third, assisted by Larkin and Mike Green, and at 8:38 of the third, assisted by Nyquist and Larkin.
4 — For an Original Six team, it’s hard to believe that there are still records to be set. Yet Bertuzzi set a new one with four straight three-point games from March 28-April 2. He was the first NHL player to turn that trick since Keith Tkachuk did so for the St. Louis Blues from Dec. 1-10, 2005 and Patrick Marleau did so for the San Jose Sharks from Dec. 2-8, 2005.
