Santorelli is the Team’s Leading Goal Scorer

When the Vancouver Canucks signed Mike Santorelli to a one-year contract worth $250,000 in the minors and $550,000 at the NHL on July 6, they probably had him pencilled in as the Utica Comets first line centre.

The Canucks brass (and fans) did not expect him to make the team. Maybe as the 13th forward if he is lucky and has a good training camp.

Santorelli not only made the team, but he is the leading goal scorer with four. He is fourth on the team in points with six behind Henrik Sedin, Jason Garrison, and Daniel Sedin.

He is also the best Canucks faceoff man winning 64.5 per cent of all draws.
