Canucks Volpatti done for the season
The Canucks have lost left winger Aaron Volpatti for the season due to a shoulder injury that will require surgery within the next week. “Patti has been having some shoulder issues,” Alain Vigneault said. “He had an MRI done (Friday) and, unfortunately, it showed a labrum tear.” Volpatti scored his first goal in almost a year on Thursday against the Nashville Predators. The Canucks have some injuries to their list already. Steve Pinizzotto is out for the season after suffering a shoulder injury during exhibition; Byron Bitz is recuperating from hip surgery; and Andrew Ebbett is still recovering from fractured foot that he suffered while blocking a shot against the Los Angeles Kings on Nov.10.
