Is Robert Bortuzzo injured?

Free Bortuzzo. That’s the rally cry Blues fans have been screaming on Twitter ever since the Blues announced their lineup for Game 1 against the Wild. Following the Game 3 disaster, the cry grew louder and fans questioned why Ken Hitchcock was ignoring the physical defenseman. Is it because of his puck-handling? Is Carl Gunnarsson truly the better option? Or is it for a different...

Robert Bortuzzo Absolutely Crushes Jaromir Jagr, Faces Hearing (Video)

Bortuzzo absolutely demolished 42-year-old Jaromir Jagr during the Penguins’ 1-0 win over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. Bortuzzo, who is 17 years Jagr’s junior, wasn’t penalized, but the blue liner still could face discipline for the late hit. The NHL Department of Player Safety announced...

Robert Bortuzzo should be suspended

In one of the most boring games of all time, this play became the focal point: The GIF: YIKES Some things about this hit: 1. There is an alarming amount of people claiming this is a good hit. Because Bob Errey said it was. 2. Bob Errey is wrong. 3. The puck is in the middle of the slot when contact is initially made. 4. Where is the point of contact?   The correct answer...

Detroit’s Robert Bortuzzo Leaves Jerry D’Amigo Shaken After Rocking Him With High Hit (Video)

With injuries plaguing the Penguins’ defensive corps, Pittsburgh called up some young guns to bolster their blue line on Monday night, and one defenseman ensured that his opponents would remember his name — albeit, not in a positive light. The Pens were without five of their top-six defensemen while taking on the Maple Leafs as Brooks Orpik, Kris Letang, Rob Scuderi, Paul Martin...

Where in the world is Robert Bortuzzo?

Why has Deryk Engelland been playing instead of Robert Bortuzzo? Robert Bortuzzo is one of the Pittsburgh Penguins top defensive prospects, and has shown that he has the skill set and maturity level of many of his counterparts such as Olli Maata and, to a lesser extent, Simon Despres.
