News: Bertuzzi recently underwent a procedure on his knee, Dhiren Mahiban of The Canadian Press reports.
Impact: The 39-year-old Bertuzzi had been pursuing a return to the NHL this season, only to see his plans thwarted when he developed the knee issue while skating with AHL Binghamton on a professional tryout offer. It's unclear how long of a recovery timetable Bertuzzi will face following the procedure, but regardless, it seems likely that the winger could just decide to call it a career.

News: Bertuzzi (knee) was released from his professional tryout offer with AHL Binghamton on Wednesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Impact: Bertuzzi developed a knee issue shortly after he began playing with Binghamton, ending his quest to earn his way back to the NHL. He'll likely take some time off to recover from the injury, but it's not known if he plans to consider another comeback bid.

News: Bertuzzi signed a professional tryout offer Friday with AHL Binghamton, the Senators' minor-league affiliate.
Impact: The 39-year-old looked like he would be headed for retirement after playing for the Red Wings last season, but he's not quite ready to close the book on his career. He'll presumably skate in several games for Binghamton in what amounts to a showcase for NHL teams.
