It Was Three Years Ago Today

Three years later, Moore still hopes for NHL return

Steve Moore is living in his hometown of Thornhill, Ontario. He is working out, lifting weights and skating. He makes periodic visits to the renowned Cleveland Clinic and to his Toronto doctors, but he said he still has concussion-related problems that have prevented the physicians from clearing him to take contact and to attempt to play.
But he hasn’t given up on trying to return to the NHL.
This is Steve Moore’s life, three years since the notorious March 8, 2004 incident where Todd Bertuzzi hit the Avalanche forward from behind, drove him into the ice and tried to hit him as Colorado’s Andrei Nikolishin fell on the pile and attempted to restrain Bertuzzi. It has been three years since Moore was wheeled off the General Motors Place ice with three fractured neck vertebrae, a concussion and facial lacerations.

    Unknown ironic twist. Since the Bertuzzi hit, the NHL has tried to crack down on the goons in the league saying there is no room for them in the new NHL. Oddly enough, Steve Moore’s younger brother was just traded by the Penguins for G. Laroque, a goon to protect Sidney Crosby. “that guy’s a fag!” -Spicoli
