Former NHL player Steve Moore filed another lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi for the Vancouver Canucks forward's on-ice attack nearly two years ago.

Tim Danson, Moore's lawyer, said the suit, filed in Ontario Superior Court on Tuesday, has nothing to do with Bertuzzi's trip to the Olympics with Team Canada.

Danson said they had two years since the incident to file a lawsuit.

Moore is seeking $15-million in lost wages and more in damages from Bertuzzi.
