Our Leafs once again go out and blast the opposing team on a Saturday night. Let me remind you of several past blastings this season:
|NY Rangers||W 5-2|
|Chicago||L 4-5 OT|
|@ Pittsburgh||W 7-3|
|@ Montreal||W 5-2|
|@ Ottawa||W 4-3 OT|
Get my point? And now we beat Calgary 8-6, again on Saturday, to top it off. This team is so random.
The Leafs have signed Chris Didomenico to a three-year entry level contract. He will likely report to the Toronto Marlies at some point this year or the next, as the Leafs begin to assess Chris and mold him into a true NHLer.
Undrafted in the OHL, Didomenico tried his luck in the QMJHL, trying out and making the Saint John Seadogs. He continued to surprise by putting up great numbers in his sophomore year, and then was traded to the Drummondville Voltigeurs. He was selected for the 2009 Canada U20 World Junior squad, much to the surprise and delight of Leafs fans.
Didomenico's journey to this contract was one filled with surprises. As a smallish player who stands at 5'10, there will still be doubters of his NHL potential. The Leafs took a chance on Didomenico by drafting him in the 6th round in 2007, and until we see him suit up in the big leagues once and for all, the doubting will probably continue.
Here's hoping he can prove the doubters wrong yet again.
