Rome picks Canucks over free agency
The deal will pay Rome $700,000 next season and $800,000 the following year. The 26-year-old Rome would have been eligible to become an unrestricted free agent July 1.
Signed by the Canucks as a free agent last summer after playing just 26 NHL games over his first five pro seasons, Rome played 49 games with four assists.
