DeFazio! DeFazio! Who the **** is DeFazio?!
Born: September 13, 1988 in Oakville, Ontario. Conceived in the back seat of a Chevy Impala. No, he wasn't. But for the kids that don't know what an Impala is: you have no clue what tough car is. Take your plastic shit and go home. Impala has got you beat.
Position: Left Wing.
Size: 6'1", 200 pounds
Drafted: Not drafted.
Acquired: Mike Gillis signed Defazio as a free agent in July of 2013. I say Mike Gillis because...he meant well.
Contract status: Restricted Free Agent. In other words: GONE LIKE THE WIND.
DeFazio (which is Italian for "phased out"), played his first 2 NHL games this season for the Canucks, averaging just under 6:00 per game in those 2 games. No points. 2 shots. 1 missed shot. Perhaps 18 shifts. 1 takeaway. No hits.
Not a bad AHL'er though:
He has 2 goals and 4 assists in 19 games of the Comets' current playoff run.
Yaaaayyy hat trick!!!!:
No, seriously though.... DeFazio will be in a Canucks' jersey next season:
OK **** it. I honestly do wish him well and you just never know what can happen. I'm sure some advanced stats will prove he is NHL caliber...but I'm not looking into them....oh wait...small sample size. That's what your nurse told you.
