Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton)
The Binghamton Senators now have a head coach, a few games on the schedule, the makings of a full roster and perhaps the biggest game of the year.
That is if Jerry D'Amigo ends up in the AHL next season.
He signed a 3-year deal with Toronto on Wednesday.
He led team team USA to a gold medal by scoring 12 points in the world junior tournament.
He also had 10 goals and 24 assists with RPI.
He doesn't know where he'll be playing this year.
Obviously the NHL is his preference, but the Leafs AHL team will play in Binghamton once next season.
" It would definitely be a great experience. You know I've watched so many games at that arena and to then play there, I can't even explain how that would feel until that moment is there. Hopefully I won't be, hopefully I'll be playing with Toronto, but then again you never know, and if I do I'll have a lot of people behind me hopefully."
D'Amigo says he'll stay home for a little longer before heading to Toronto to work out with the team.
Rookie camp opens for the Leafs on September 11th.
