BIO: After suffering a potential career-ending injury to his knee several years ago, Baio rebounded and joined the Pirate blueline. Though Baio's role was the “eleventh man” to fill-in for scratches, he logged more ice time in the past three seasons than many rostered players. In his short tenure as a Pirate, Baio has won the Norris and Masterton Trophies as voted by his teammates.
