DiDomenico to play in Spengler Cup again

For the third straight year, Chris DiDomenico will play for Team Canada at the Spengler Cup.

DiDomenico helped Canada win gold at last year's tournament, recording one goal and three assists in four games - which included two assists in the final. In 2014, DiDomenico was held pointless in two games.

The 27-year-old forward is in his third full season with the SCL Tigers in Switzerland, recording seven goals and 17 assists in 31 games this year. He had 12 goals and 26 helpers in 46 matches with the Tigers, according to Elite Prospects.

A native of Woodbridge, Ont., DiDomenico spent two-and-a-half seasons with the Sea Dogs from 2007-2009. According to Elite Prospects, he is sixth 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.

The 2016 Spengler Cup takes place Dec. 26-31 in Davos, Switzerland. Canada's first game is on Boxing Day against Dinamo Minsk. Game time is 3:15 p.m. on TSN.

Canada's roster includes a number of QMJHL alumni, including James Sheppard, Brandon Gormley and Zach Fucale.
