This video features Eric Selleck going after 6-foot-5 James DeLory on the first day of Rochester Americans training camp.  It would appear that the former SUNYAC MVP has spent this pre-season trying to establish himself as a physical presence for the Amerks.

The Maple Leafs 6th round selection in 2009, and 2010 World Junior Championship gold medal winner Jerry D'Amigo, collided knee-on-knee with the Amerks' Eric Selleck during the final period. Though helped to the dressing room, D'Amigo would later appear to sign autographs for the 700 fans in attendance with no visible signs of pain. Selleck received a five minute major penalty for kneeing, along with a second 5 minute major for fighting due to the scrap that ensued when Marlies' defenseman Josh Engel came to the aid of his fallen teammate. 

Selleck is also trying to show that the scoring knack he exhibited in Division III can translate to the professional level.

Rochester answered back with a pair of goals 2:35 apart from newly acquired Triston Grant and SUNY Oswego’s Eric Selleck, each converting on rebounds to put the Amerks back on top 3-2.

Rochester has yet to release their opening night roster, but Selleck remains on their current one.  Derrell Levy, a former teammate of Selleck's at Oswego State, was released by the Syracuse Crunch earlier this week.  The Amerks' season begins Saturday night in Toronto.
