Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jerry D'Amigo
Jerry D’Amigo was born on February 19, 1991 in Binghamton, New York. The product of the U.S. National Under-18 Team was drafted in the sixth round, 158th overall, by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Prior to becoming a professional, he elected to hone his hockey skills by playing for the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as part of the NCAA. During his only year in the NCAA, he won the ECAC Rookie of the Year and was named to the ECAC All-Rookie Team.

After his only year with the NCAA, the Maple Leafs signed D’Amigo to an entry level contract on August 11, 2010. Due to the fact that he was coming from the NCAA, the Maple Leafs had the choice of sending him to their AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, or to the OHL where the Kitchener Rangers had his rights. The Maple Leafs elected to send him to the Marlies where he would score 5 goals and 15 points in 43 games before the Marlies decided to send him to the OHL to play with the Rangers.

The next year D’Amigo was back with the Marlies full time where he would be a key contributor to the team. In his first full year with the Marlies he helped lead them all the way to the Calder Cup Finals where they would lose to the Tampa Bay Lightning’s AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals in a four game sweep.

During the 2013-14 season D’Amigo would make his NHL debut with the Maple Leafs in a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on December 5, 2013. Later that month he would record his first career NHL goal and assist against the Chicago Blackhawks in a 7-3 victory. On July 1, 2014 the Maple Leafs would trade D’Amigo with a seventh round draft pick to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Matt Frattin. On December 16, 2014 D’Amigo would be traded again to the Buffalo Sabres for Luke Adam.

On the international stage, Jerry D’Amigo would represent the United States three times. The first he would help lead the team to a Gold Medal during the 2009 IIHF World U18 Championships where he was also named a First Team All-Star. The next year he would again help lead the USA to a Gold Medal in the 2010 World Junior Championships in Saskatoon. He would represent the United States one more time in the 2011 World Junior Championships where the United States would claim the Bronze Medal.
