Christopher DiDomenico (born February 20, 1989) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward. He is currently playing for the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). DiDomenico was selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the sixth round (164th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Amateur[edit]

Prior to turning professional, DiDomenico played major junior hockey in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for the Saint John Sea Dogs and the Drummondville Voltigeurs. Nearing the conclusion of the 2008–09 season with the Voltigeurs, DiDomenico was signed to a three-year entry-level contract with his draft team, the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 14, 2009.[1]

Professional[edit]

On June 30, 2010, the Maple Leafs traded DiDomenico, along with Viktor Stalberg and Philippe Paradis, to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Kris Versteeg and Bill Sweatt.[2] After reporting to the Blackhawks 2010 training camp, DiDomenico made his professional debut in the 2010–11 season with American Hockey League affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs.

DiDomenico played two years within the Blackhawks' system, toiling between the AHL and ECHL before opting to leave as a restricted free agent in the off-season to join Asiago HC of the Italian Serie A league in 2012. After two years with Asiago, DiDomenico left Italy but remained in Europe after agreeing to join Swiss club, SCL Tigers of the then National League B for their post-season campaign on February 12, 2012.

Helping the Tigers return to the top flight National League A, and in his fourth season with the Tigers in 2016–17, DiDomenico was approached with NHL interest. While leading the Tigers in scoring with 38 points in 48 games, DiDomenico was reluctantly released from his contract with SCL immediately after agreeing to a two-year deal to pursue his NHL ambitions with the Ottawa Senators under former junior coach Guy Boucher on February 27, 2017.[3] In signing with the Senators mid-season, DiDomenico was subject to waivers before joining the club. DiDomenico successfully cleared waivers on February 28, 2017 and joined the Senators. DiDomenico made his NHL debut on March 9, 2017 against the Arizona Coyotes.[4]
