  • The Press Box June 17, 2012

    Happy Fathers Day to all you dads out there.

    News and Notes
    As there is not much going on today in the NHL this is a pretty small and boring Press Box. So give it a quick read and then go hang out with your dad or kids today.

    Aaron Volpatti was re-signed by the Vancouver Canucks for one year. Volpatti missed 57 games last season and the playoffs after undergoing shoulder surgery. He is not much of a fantasy player but can be a fun player to watch, as he is a crasher and banger who will drop the gloves.

    James van Riemsdyk won’t require hip surgery, which is great news for fantasy owners. He missed 21 games last season but is expected to be ready in time for training camp. Next season will be his fourth in the NHL and his points per game has gone up each year, expect a bigger jump this coming season.

    Joel Armia signed a three-year entry level contract with the Buffalo Sabres. Max Friberg signed a three-year entry level contract with the Anaheim Ducks. You can find player profiles on both of these players in our Prospects Guide, which will be released on July 10. You can pre-order it here. To see a preview of the guide click here.

    Other Transactions:
    Alexander Salak placed on waivers by the Chicago Blackhawks.

    Los Angeles Kings re-signed both Marc-Andre Cliche and Richard Clune to two-year contracts.

    Jesse Joensuu was re-signed by the New York Islanders for one-year.

    Adam Hall re-signed a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning, who also re-signed J.T. Wyman to a one-year two-way contract.
