55 Games - 8 Goals - 8 Assists (at least he has a balanced attack) - 122 Penalty minutes. His Goals-per-shots-on-goals an unlikely 12.1%.
And here are his fight stats (and yes - there are people who track this - http://www.hockeyfights.com/):
10 fights. Record: 2 wins, 3 losses, 5 ties. (By comparison Brashear was 6-2-3 with one of his two losses coming against a certain Colton Orr).
Like his other teammates, Aaron got the offseason letters from Tortorella (with lots of Capitalizations and Exclamation Points!!!) urging him to get in shape.
And so, according to Voros, he has stayed close to the Rangers Training camp center all summer - working out the entire off-season. The 200 pound, 6-4 left winger who turned 28 in July wants to try his hardest to stay part of this Ranger team.
In fact, Voros told Steve Zipay at Newsday this week that he's been at camp so many weeks that last week was "like Groundhog Day...but with more people this week". Voros also said, of his physical condition:
"I'm in the best shape of my life."
That is good news - unless...
We don't know how to say this exactly - but there were police reports this summer of a robbery in Rochester on August 30th. A convenience store on North Main Street was robbed at knife point in broad daylight.
Why am I mentioning this terrible event? As you can see in the photo - the suspect was wearing... well, I will quote the local paper Fosters Daily Democrat here:
Police released a photograph of the suspect from a surveillance camera at the store and describe the suspect as a white male who was wearing a New York Rangers hockey jersey bearing the number 34. The jersey is mostly white in color, with red and blue lettering, police said.
The suspect wore a Ranger Jersey? Number 34? But that's ... Aaron Voros' number!
But that's impossible. Aaron is no criminal. He has no history of violence. I mean he's a professional hockey player. A player with 122 penalty minutes and 10 fights last year and....
And, anyway, Aaron has made a special point of telling reporters that he was at Ranger Training camp. All summer. And Westchester is 5 hours away from Rochester. Why would he make a special point of saying he was in Westchester? It's not like he needed an alibi.
Uh oh. This can't be happening.
Anyway - let's keep it on the down-low. The Rochester police haven't checked roster numbers yet - so we're still in the clear.
And hey, in the future, to anyone thinking of committing an armed robbery in Rochester - we urge you to reconsider. If nothing else - please leave the Ranger Jersey at home.
