Chris DiDomenico (born February 20, 1989 in Woodbridge, Ontario) is a Canadian ice hockey centre who currently plays HC Fribourg-Gottéron of the NLA. He was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 6th round, 164th overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Beginning his major junior career in the QMJHL with the Saint John Sea Dogs in 2006–07, DiDomenico recorded 25 goals, 50 assists and 75 points, establishing Sea Dogs club records in all three statistical records for a rookie. At the end of the season, he was named to the QMJHL All-Rookie Team. That summer, he was drafted 164th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Returning to the Sea Dogs the next season, in 2007–08, DiDomenico was named the QMJHL Offensive Player of the Month for September. In his second season, QMJHL observers dubbed him one of the league's best players. Accordingly, he finished sixth in league scoring with 95 points in 65 games.

During his third QMJHL season in 2008–09, DiDomenico was traded to the Drummondville Voltigeurs. He completed the season with a combined 59 points in 51 games between Drummondville and Saint John. Near the end of the season, DiDomenico signed an 3-year, entry level contract with the Maple Leafs on March 14, 2009. He subsequently embarked on an outstanding playoff run for the Voltigeurs, recording a playoff-high 31 assists to go with 4 goals in 15 games before suffering a broken femur after colliding with Adam Bourque-Leblanc and crashing into the boards in game three of the 2009 QMJHL Finals against the Shawinigan Cataractes. He lay on the ice for several minutes before being carried off in a stretcher. Despite losing DiDomenico, the Voltigeurs emerged over the Cataractes in seven games to capture the President's Cup and a berth in the 2009 Memorial Cup.
