Aaron Volpatti Is Not Only Alive But Has A New Deal

The fourth line salsa party has begun and it includes a name we haven't been able to share in a long time: Aaron Volpatti. The mothership brought the good word the peppermint pugilist will be back for a one year deal.

Volpatti was a fourth line main stay last season until a tore labrum (what's up with the shoulder issues on this team?) sidelined him a day after he scored his first goal of the year and second of his career. Coincidentally around the Nashville game it was rumored he'd be plastered in the press box thanks to a returning Mason Raymond who we learned yesterday may not be in a Canucks uni much longer.

He's played 38 NHL games (all with Vancouver) and has 3 points, 53 PIMs and a TOI of 8:08. As far as depth players go, Volpatti served his role last season, one of the paltry few souls willingly to toss his frame around on a team which will continue to be scolded as soft until Henrik Sedin puts Dustin Penner through the glass and celebrates by eating a live kitten.

Whether Volpatti can contribute and stay healthy is another question. Chances are there will be no shortage of fourth liners competiting alongside him by September. Best of luck kid. Perhaps the most important lesson for now? Don't do this. Ever. Please.
