Aaron Volpatti


Recommended Posts

Really a big fan of Volpatti. I had him penciled in for that 4th line LW spot even before the season started. Why? He didn't look out of place in the NHL when he played last year and is one of the few players in the organization who consistently hits and plays a physical game. He's currently 16th in the NHL in hits, with 14 in 4 games. Lapierre, FYI, is 9th with 16 hits and leads the team.

Four games into the season, and Volpatti is looking like a solid fourth liner. He's doing all the things you would expect from your fourth line left winger...laying the body, playing with energy, forechecking hard, playing decent defence and throwing a few fists. Let's hope he can stay healthy and play at this level for the remaining 44 games.

Would have been sweet if he could have got an assist to complete the Gordie Howe hat trick last night.
