The legal battle wages on, though, and this week Moore’s lawyers filed documents in his civil suit against Bertuzzi and the Vancouver Canucks increasing his financial claims from $38 million to $68 million. That’s how much they feel Moore lost in future earnings when his career was cut short.

Moore, 35, sustained a concussion and three fractured vertebrae in 2004 in the on-ice hit.

The civil trial is scheduled to start in Ontario Superior Court in September.
