Rome, Pinizzotto hurt in loss to Sharks

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Vancouver Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome broke his hand and minor league forward Steven Pinizzotto dislocated his shoulder during a 4-3 preseason loss to the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night.

Rome, who has played 105 games over the past two seasons in Vancouver, was injured blocking a shot in the second period and did not return.

Pinizzotto, who played all five of his seasons in the minors, was hurt after a first-period collision with big San Jose defenseman Douglas Murray.

Vancouver also released veteran forward Owen Nolan from a tryout contract after Sunday's loss. The 39-year-old former All-Star had a goal and an assist in three games as he attempted to resurrect a career that had seen him get 885 points in 1,200 NHL games before playing last season in Switzerland.
