TORONTO (AP) - A settlement has been reached in Steve Moore's lawsuit against former Vancouver Canucks forward Todd Bertuzzi for his career-ending hit during an NHL game 10 years ago.
Bertuzzi lawyer Geoff Adair confirmed the settlement but says the terms are confidential. The multimillion-dollar lawsuit had been scheduled to go to trial Sept. 8.
Bertuzzi struck Moore from behind, sending the Colorado Avalanche player crashing face first to the ice and leaving him with a concussion and fractured vertebrae.
Moore alleges the Canucks had put a bounty on him following his check that injured captain Markus Naslund.
Bertuzzi pleaded guilty to criminal assault causing bodily harm. He was sentenced in 2006 to one year of probation and 80 hours of community service.
