After leaving the NHL in early 2023, former Vancouver Canucks forward Joseph Cramarossa has decided to remain in Europe for at least one more season.

On Tuesday, it was announced that Cramarossa has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Lowen Frankfurt in the DEL, Germany's highest division.

"I am very happy to be playing for the Löwen Frankfurt this season. After speaking to Franz and Matti I believe the team can achieve some great things and I'm grateful that they see me as a part of that puzzle. Frankfurt is a great city, I've experienced the fans and the atmosphere in the arena first hand. I am now looking forward to having this experience on the home side, as part of the lions." Cramarossa said.

Cramarossa, a native of Markham, Ontario, played ten games for the Vancouver Canucks during the 2016-17 season after being claimed off waivers from the Anaheim Ducks. In those ten games, he didn't record any points, had nine penalty minutes and was a minus-one. In his first game with the Canucks, Cramarossa dropped the mitts with San Jose Sharks forward Michael Haley.

The 30-year-old was placed on unconditional waivers by the Minnesota Wild back in January for the purpose of terminating his contract. After clearing unconditional waivers, he signed with the DEL's Adler Mannheim where he put up eight points in 15 regular season games, as well as one assist in seven playoff games.
