No European hockey for Bertuzzi

Todd Bertuzzi, the Vancouver Canucks forward who was suspended by the NHL for much of last season, has now been barred from playing in Europe as well.

Bertuzzi sent Colorado Avalanche player Steve Moore to the hospital with a sucker punch from behind. Criminal charges have been lodged against Bertuzzi in Canada; his trial is scheduled for January.
