Canucks Sign Aaron Volpatti Of Brown University

Aaron VolpattiThe Vancouver Canucks have announced the signing of Brown University’s Aaron Volpatti. In keeping with club policy, terms of the deal were not released.

Volpatti, a 6′-2″ 215 pound forward, is a native of Revelstoke, BC., has drawn a lot of attention with his aggressive, hard hitting style, and he also possesses a nice scoring touch. In a recent interview Volpatti said he had heard from Vancouver, Nashville and Edmonton and Boston, but that being from British Columbia the Canucks were certainly a favoured destination. 

In 37 games this season, Volpatti notched 17 goals, 15 assists and led Brown with 115 penalty minutes.
