The Canucks said there will be no further comment from the club or Salo at this time.

Salo, 35, played in 68 games last season, recording 9 goals and 19 assists, and was a plus-14. He added 1 goal and 5 assists in 12 playoff games. In 665 career regular-season games with the Ottawa Senators and Canucks, Salo has 81 goals and 192 assists, with 9 goals and 17 assists in 74 playoff games.
Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
