Report: Rome, Canucks to part ways
The player responsible for one of the most infamous moments in Canucks history is leaving the organization.
Defenseman Aaron Rome won’t be offered a contract extension with the club, agent Kevin Epp told Vancouver’s News1130.
Epp said he wasn’t surprised the Canucks showed no interest in bringing back his client, who fell out of the rotation last year despite putting up career highs in goals, assists and points. Rome appeared just once in Vancouver’s brief five-game playoff run and only appeared in 43 regular-season contests.
While Rome’s departure from Vancouver sounds imminent, it’s unlikely the city will ever forget him.
