[Retirement] Former Canuck Aaron Volpatti to retire


Recommended Posts

@alex_prewitt:

Former Caps F Aaron Volpatti will most likely be retiring from hockey due to the neck injury that sidelined him last season, per his agent.

@alex_prewitt:

Volpatti's range of motion was still limited, didn't improve enough for a comeback. Human biology major at Brown. Bright post-hockey future.

All the best. Unfortunate way to leave the game. Have all the respect in the world for guys that retire due to health reasons.

Still remember when he was waived - by the way cdc reacted, you'd think it was Kesler who was waived :lol:

Almost as funny as the reaction to guys who get traded, then waived by the team we traded them to, only to end up with some success at their 3rd team (Grabner, Connauton).

Too bad he never received an opportunity to develop in the AHL. I think he might have made a decent career for himself.

Great fighter, good energy guy.

Never understood us letting him go.

The first point answers the second: Gillis tried to sneak him down to the A to get some development time and got burned. Letting him go wasn't the plan, just how it worked out.

Overreacttion about waiving volpatti, trading Grabner, letting Malhotra go etc.

All good decisions.

Malhotra was a good decision only because it was for the best interest of his career.

Grabner deal was pretty bad, like the actual trade/entire pieces. Not a huge deal but still not happy they kept Raymond over Grabner.

Volpatti waived wasn't a huge blow or anything but only was to an extent cause Sestito took his spot.
