According to the Vancouver Sun, the Canucks have re-signed defenseman Aaron Rome to a new contract:
Rome, 26, played in 49 games with Vancouver this season after being acquired via free agency last summer. He finished his first season with the Canucks registering four points (0-4-4) and 24 penalty minutes.
Rome will earn $750,000 US a season on his new deal. He made $525,000 US last season.
“He definitely wanted to be part of what the Canucks are doing,” Rome’s Vancouver-based agent Kevin Epp said of his client.
“It’s unfortunate the way it ended for him being injured in the playoffs, but the last half of the season he played real well, got a good opportunity and feels like the organization believes in him as a player and is willing to give him a good chance to play and play regularly.”
