Playing career[edit]

Junior[edit]

Catenacci was selected first overall by the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the 2009 Ontario Hockey League Draft from the York Simcoe Express minor midget AAA team.[1]

After two seasons with the Greyhounds, he was traded to the Owen Sound Attack in August 2011 in exchange for Andrew Fritsch, Michael Schumacher and a second-round draft pick.[2][3]

Professional[edit]

Catenacci was drafted in the third round, 77th overall, by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. He made his professional debut with the Rochester Americans during the 2013 American Hockey League playoffs.[4]

On February 5, 2016, Catenacci was recalled from the minors by the Sabres.[5] He made his debut with the Sabres the next night in a game against the Boston Bruins.[6] In his third game, against the Philadelphia Flyers, Catenacci was injured by a check from Radko Gudas.[7] After spending a week on the injured reserve list, Catenacci was re-assigned to Rochester on February 19.[8]

On March 1, 2016, Catenacci was once again recalled by the Sabres.[9]
