Bertuzzi in Court for Hit on Moore

I watched this game unfold and the literal bloodbath that ensued. The NHL did well when it suspended Bertuzzi in a way that tied his return to hockey to Moore's return. Moore suffered several injuries including a fractured neck, amnesia, and a concussion as a result of a sucker-punch from behind thrown by Bertuzzi.

What is more interesting for violence on the court/field/rink and the future of sports is that Bertuzzi has been brought before a civil judge on assault charges. He plead guilty and received community service.
