ROBERT BORTUZZO RUMORS

Devils’ Jordan Tootoo Fights Robert Bortuzzo Twice In Same Period (Video)

Robert Bortuzzo had to defend himself Monday night against Jordan Tootoo — twice. Bortuzzo drew the ire of the New Jersey Devils earlier this month when he delivered a cheap shot on Devils winger Jaromir Jagr. The Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman, who said after that game that he was “OK” with his hit, was slapped with a two-game suspension, but Tootoo decided to add a bit of...

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...

(Video) Robert Bortuzzo head shot on Jerry D'Amigo

Penguins Defenseman Robert Bortuzzo delivers a headshot on Maple Leafs forward Jerry D'Amigo. Bortuzzo was given a two-minute minor for an illegal check to the head. I think there's a chance that Bortuzzo could get a call from the NHL's department of Player Safety.I also agree with the fans that say that the Pittsburgh Penguins don't have the moral high ground, either. Lastly, Is...
