Burnaby's Mike Santorelli secures spot on opening day Canucks roster
It looks like Mike Santorelli has found a home with his hometown team.
When the Vancouver Canucks released their opening day roster for the 2013-14 season, the Burnaby puck product was on it. The centre signed a one-year, $550,000 deal as a free agent with the Canucks during the offseason.
Last season Santorelli, 27, scored one assist in 10 games after being picked up by the Winnipeg Jets following his release from the Florida Panthers. He had scored 31 goals and 24 assists in 166 games for Florida. He was a sixth round draft pick of Nashville scoring two goals and one assist in 32 games for the Predators.
He also netted 74 goals and 97 assists over three seasons for Nashville’s AHL affiliate the Milwaukee Admirals.
