Aaron Voros (born July 2, 1981) is a professional ice hockey winger who is currently an Unrestricted Free Agent. He was originally drafted by the New Jersey Devils with the 229th overall pick in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. He played college hockey for three years at University of Alaska Fairbanks. He played for the Anaheim Ducks of the National Hockey League (NHL) in the 2010-2011 season.

Playing careerEdit

Voros played his ameteur hockey in his home city of Surrey, British Columbia with the Surrey Minor Hockey Association, also playing Nor-Wes Caps-Junior B of the PIJHL and Junior A with the Victoria Salsa of the BCHL. He was awarded a full athletic hockey scholarship to University of Alaska Fairbanks, where he was named to the CCHA All-Rookie team in his freshman year. After the second game of his sophomore season at Alaska Fairbanks, doctors discovered a half-baseball-sized lump behind Voros' left knee. After an MRI, three doctors diagnosed it as a type of malignant bone cancer; however, three subsequent biopsies revealed the tumor to be benign. Voros still required several operations, during which he had part of his femur removed. He suffered a staph infection and had to have a Hickman line inserted into his superior vena cava for 12 weeks.[1]

On March 1, 2007, the Minnesota Wild traded a seventh-round draft pick in 2008 to the New Jersey Devils for Voros. After starting the 2007–08 season with the Wild's American Hockey League affiliate, the Houston Aeros, Voros was called upon to play his first NHL game on November 11, 2007 against the Colorado Avalanche.[2]

Voros scored his first NHL goal, as a member of the Wild, against Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks on November 16, 2007 in his birthplace and hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.[3] He would go on to score seven goals and seven assists in 55 games during his rookie season. Voros was nominated as the Wild's 2008 Bill Masterton Trophy candidate by the Twin Cities chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association.[2]

Voros agreed to a three-year contract with New York Rangers worth $3.3 million on July 1, 2008, fulfilling a childhood dream.[4][5]

On June 10, 2010, he was traded along with Ryan Hillier to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenseman Steve Eminger.[6]

Aaron suffered a broken orbital bone on December 8, 2010 in a game in Vancouver. He was placed on the Anaheim Ducks injured reserved list until February 11th, 2011.

On February 15, 2011, Voros was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for a conditional 7th round draft pick.

PersonalEdit

Voros is of Hungarian descent.[7] His grandfather emigrated from Hungary in 1956 and settled in Vancouver. In an interview in 2008 Voros said that he is proud of his Hungarian roots and would love to represent Hungary on the international level if he would get a call-up.[8]
