A settlement has been reached in Steve Moore's lawsuit against former Vancouver Canucks forward Todd Bertuzzi for his career-ending attack during an NHL game more than 10 years ago.

Geoff Adair, a lawyer for Bertuzzi, confirmed the settlement but says the terms are confidential.

The multimillion-dollar lawsuit had been scheduled to go to trial Sept. 8.

The notorious hit happened 10 years ago, when Bertuzzi hit Moore from behind, sending the hapless 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 his head following his check that left their captain Markus Naslund injured.

Bertuzzi pleaded guilty to criminal assault causing bodily harm for the hit and was sentenced in 2006 to one year probation and 80 hours of community service.
