Observations:

May 2015 – D'Amigo has been pushed down the depth chart with the emergence of Justin Bailey and Nicholas Baptiste. D'Amigo's contract is up and he isn't likely going to resign with the Sabres organization. He could be headed for Europe or another team may take a chance on him. He finished the season with 12 goals and 12 assists for 24 points in 50 games played, which was 14th in Amerks scoring. Paul Zwambag

 

August 2015 – Jerry D’Amigo signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $125,000 at the AHL level. With this two-way contract, he will likely be in and out of the lineup and up and down from NHL to AHL. He won’t crack the lineup as a full time roster player for another year. If D’Amigo has a good year in the AHL or gets a reasonable amount of time at the NHL, he is going to have to show he is capable of being a consistent scorer at both levels. Paul Zwambag

 

May 2015 – Jerry D'Amigo was traded to the Buffalo Sabres in December 2014 for Luke Adam. Another trade for D'Amigo, which makes this his third team in as many years. Once considered a potential late rounder in deep fantasy leagues, D'Amigo has fallen off the radar and seems to be stuck in the AHL. In his 2014-15 Season with Springfield he had three goals, four assists and seven points in 28 games, but when he came to Rochester he had six goals, 13 assists and 19 points in 31 games. Jerry did get a sniff at the NHL in March but in nine games he tallied zero points. If he re-signs with the Sabres he could get a shot at the third or fourth line in Buffalo in 2015-2016, but I believ
