From the Leafs webiste: “The Leafs announced Saturday that forward Chris DiDomenico has been signed to a three-year entry level contract. The 20-year-old native of Toronto was selected by the Leafs in the sixth round, 164th overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.”
â€œChris is a skilled offensive player that plays with a lot of grit,â€ said Burke. â€œHe has shown the ability to compete and produce at a high level and weâ€™re looking forward to his further growth and development in our organization.â€
Through 48 games played this season, Didomenico had posted 18 goals and 38 assists for 56 points. It’s been a busy season for Chris that’s included World Junior gold alongside John Tavares on the top line, and then a trade from the Saint John Sea Dogs to the Drummondville Voltigeurs.
Didomenico’s two-way ability, skill, and maturity should help him make an immediate impact on the Toronto Marlies as they prepare for a deep playoff run.
Expect this to be the first of many young players to join the Marlies over the next little while.
Always a pleasure,
