"For me, it doesn't really suit my game very much," he said. "I'm really happy with how things are going at Vermont. There's rumors every couple months that I'm possibly considering going there, but that's all it is, a rumor. I haven't even been in contact with them personally, and I'm not intending to go there. I'll be back at Vermont in September."
Paliotta also said that getting an education is important to his family. He is majoring in business at Vermont.
"Obviously, I'm getting a really good education at Vermont," he said. "I love my teammates up at school."

Source telling me Saint John's interest in Vermont D-man Michael Paliotta has re-emerged. Paliotta spent last week at Blackhawks dev camp.— Joe Meloni (@CHNJoeMeloni) July 13, 2012
There were rumours last December that Paliotta, along with Vermont teammate Connor Brickley, would leave the University of Vermont to join the Sea Dogs. The university instantly denied those reports. Neither would go on to join the Sea Dogs.
Saint John went after Paliotta and Vermont teammate Conor Brickley hard last year around same time they signed Charlie Coyle from BU.— Joe Meloni (@CHNJoeMeloni) July 13, 2012
I certainly wouldn't go out and buy a Paliotta Sea Dogs jersey just yet. It makes sense that Saint John's interest has re-emerged because they have plenty of holes to fill in their lineup and we all know Mike Kelly is always working at landing impact players. It's just common sense that the Dogs would be inquiring to see if he wanted to make the shift to junior.
