DiDomencio To Play In Spengler Cup Again

Chris DiDomenico will suit up for Canada’s Spengler Cup team again this year, according to the international hockey website The Hockey House.

DiDomenico has been playing overseas since the 2012-13 season. In his second full season with the SCL Tigers in Switzerland, the 26-year-old forward leads the team in scoring with seven goals and 20 assists in 27 National League A games.

The former Sea Dog played with Canada at last year’s tournament as well where he was held pointless. Canada lost in the semifinals.

DiDomenico also played with Team Canada at the 2009 world juniors, helping the team win gold in Ottawa.

A native of Woodbridge, ON, DiDomenico spent two-and-a-half seasons with the Sea Dogs from 2007-2009. According to Elite Prospects, he is fifth all-time in franchise scoring with 75 goals and 204 points in 166 games.

DiDomenico is arguably the most important player in Sea Dogs history. Not only was he the team’s first big offensive star, he was also traded to the Drummondville Voltigeurs in the deal that saw Saint John acquire the pick used to draft Jonathan Huberdeau.

Canada’s first game of the 2015 Spengler Cup is on Boxing Day at 3 p.m. against Yekaterinburg. TSN will be broadcasting the entire tournament.
