Vallorani will join Washington Capitals Development Camp mates Barry Almeida, David Civitarese, Cameron Schilling and T.J.Syner who already have contracts for next season at Hershey. The Umass-Lowell player was one of the most impressive forwards in camp where he scored 4 goals in the weekly scrimmages, the most out of anyone at camp.
Listed somewhere around 5'8" Vallorani had to fight extra-hard to prove he was contract-worthy. His speed along with his nose for getting the puck on goal helped him to earn that contract with the AHL affiliate of the Washington Capitals.

Update 7/16: The Bears also signed defenseman Scott Wietecha from camp.
Notes: David Vallorani played four seasons at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell where he finished 5th on the team in scoring in 2011-12 with 29 points. The senior was a shooting machine, leading the team in shots on goal with 119. Vallorani went undrafted and was invited to Caps D-Camp as a free agent.
