HARTFORD, November 16, 2011:  Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the Whale has signed forward Aaron Voros to a Professional Tryout (PTO) agreement.

Voros, a 6-4, 210-pound eighth-year pro, skated in 12 NHL games with the Anaheim Ducks last season, going scoreless with 43 penalty minutes.  The 30-year-old Vancouver, B.C. native also played two AHL games with the Syracuse Crunch (no points, five penalty minutes) and appeared in 26 AHL contests with the Toronto Marlies (3-4-7, 61 PIM).

Prior to last season, Voros spent two years with the Whale’s parent club, the New York Rangers, logging a total of 95 games, with 11 goals and 12 assists for 23 points, plus 211 PIM.

Originally an eighth-round selection (229th overall) by the New Jersey Devils in the 2001 NHL Draft, Voros has seen action in a total of 162 NHL games in his career, with the Devils, Rangers, Ducks and Minnesota Wild.  His NHL career numbers are 18 goals, 19 assists, 37 points and 395 PIM.   In 251 career AHL games with the Crunch, Marlies, Albany River Rats, Lowell Devils and Houston Aeros, the former University of Alaska-Fairbanks Nanook has amassed totals of 47 goals and 51 assists for 98 points, along with 695 penalty minutes.

The Whale are back on home ice at the XL Center this Friday night, November 18, taking on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in a GEICO Connecticut Cup game at 7:00 PM.  In celebration of Veterans Day, the Whale is proud to offer a buy-one-get-one-free discount on Lower Level tickets for this game to any military personnel who present a military/veteran ID at the Public Power Ticket Office at the XL Center.
