February 28, 2014

TORONTO– Four seasons in the AHL, Jerry D’Amigo has spent time doing a little bit of everything for the Marlies. He’s never, however, produced goals the way he is right now.

The 23-year-old has scored nine goals in his last 10 contests and now has 15 in 36 games this season, which puts him second on the club behind only T.J. Brennan despite missing an entire month when he was summoned by the Maple Leafs.

“He’s fearless, plays extremely hard,” said Marlies head coach Steve Spott. “Sometimes we underestimate how good of a goal scorer he is.”

“I’m just trying to get the puck on the net someway, somehow,” D’Amigo said about his recent streak.

D’Amigo has always been open to playing wherever the coach requests and under former bench boss Dallas Eakins the Binghamton, NY native carved out the role as a grinding, bottom-six winger who can kill penalties and add some energy.

Under Spott, he’s still being relied on as a penalty killer, but he’s also worked his way up the lineup and is playing on the top line with centre Peter Holland and right-winger Spencer Abbott.

Despite only playing on a line with D’Amigo for a short period of time, Holland has quickly learned what Jerry can do.

“Jerry D’Amigo is great at getting the puck back for us, great on the forecheck,” said Holland.

Currently the 2009 sixth-round draft pick is playing large minutes for the Marlies, split between 5-on-5, power play and penalty kill, and despite the added responsibility Spott knows D’Amigo embraces the opportunity.

“He wants that, he wants to be a guy that can play in all situations,” said Spott. “He’s in good enough shape to handle the minutes.”

The Marlies are on a four-game win streak and D’Amigo has three game-winning goals during the run. None, however, was as hard-earned as this goal against the San Antonio Rampage on Feb. 22.

Chopped down on a breakaway, the 5-foot-11 210-pound forward was still able to finish the play before slamming hard into the boards. He left the game briefly holding his left arm, but returned to finish.

“Just one of those things you battle through and try to help your team anyway you can,” D’Amigo said after the game while icing his left wrist.

D’Amigo earned his first call up to the Maple Leafs in December and played in 19 games, registering one goal and one assist in a similar role he played under Eakins.

His AHL career high for goals came last season when he netted 17 in 70 games. If he stays on the Marlies roster he will surpass that easily with the way he’s playing.

The Marlies next game is Saturday when they host the Hamilton Bulldogs.
