Aaron Voros (born July 2, 1981 in Vancouver, British Columbia) is a professional ice hockey right winger for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL). 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.

Playing career

Voros played his youth hockey in his home city of Surrey, British Columbia with the Surrey Minor Hockey Association and also played Junior A with the Victoria Salsa of the BCHL. He was rewarded for his fine play in the BCHL ranks with a hockey scholarship to the 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's left knee. After an MRI, three doctors diagnosed it as a type of malignant bone cancer. Fortunately, 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 eight weeks.

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.

Voros scored his first NHL goal, as a member of the Wild, against Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks on November 16, 2007. 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 Minneapolis-Saint Paul chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association.

Being a fan of the New York Rangers since he was young, Voros signed with the team on July 1, 2008, agreeing to a three-year contract worth $3 million, fulfilling a childhood dream. His quick start to the 2008-2009 season helped his popularity among Ranger fans during the beginning of his first year in New York. However, his production dropped off dramatically, and many have been calling for head coach Tom Renney to play Petr Prucha instead of Voros.
