Recommended Posts


Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Michael D. Gillis announced today that the Canucks have signed centre Mike Santorelli.

Santorelli, 27, split the 2012.13 season with the Winnipeg Jets, Florida Panthers, San Antonio Rampage and Tingsryds AIF. The centreman posted one assist in 10 games with the Jets and three points (2-1-3) in 24 games with the Panthers.

In 208 career NHL games with the Nashville Predators, Panthers and Jets, the Vancouver, BC, native has collected 59 points (33-26-59) and 50 penalty minutes.

The 6’0”, 190 lbs. centre was originally selected by Nashville 178th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.


They signed one versatile forward, Brad Richardson on Day 1, and another, Vancouver native Mike Santorelli, on Day 2 to a (one year) two-way contract with a $550,000 cap hit in the NHL.

*** 41 points in 2010/11!

The year before lockout he paced for 12 goals, and the year before that he had 20.

Not really tough enough for a 4th liner. So he must be starting off as a replacement for Ebbett.

He's been pretty dynamite at the AHL-level, so at the very worst it's a good pickup for the sake of the Comets. Plus, he's a local-guy which sometimes pays off in a little additional effort.

If he can bounce back to a 30-40 pointer though, it could end up being a steal..

Should note that the year he had 41 points on the Panthers, he played on the same team as David Booth, Chris Higgins and Jason Garrison.
