Drafted in the sixth round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Jerry D'Amigo could be another great late round find for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

A native of Binghamton, New York, D’Amigo led Team USA to a U18 gold medal last season, scoring 13 points in seven games to finish third in tournament scoring.

D'Amigo also scored a healthy 43 points in 44 games for the US Development Program in Ann Arbor.

 

What D'Amigo Brings the Leafs

There is no doubt that D'Amigo knows how to play the offensive side of the game.

The thing that worries scouts is that D’Amigo is a very one-sided player. His scoring ability will likely convince the Leafs to put devote extra resources to help the New Yorker grow at the other aspects of the game.
