Inside College Hockey (INCH) has announced its eighth annual Freshman All-America Teams and Rensselaer student-athlete Jerry D’Amigo is one of six players selected to this year’s squad. The selections were made by the INCH staff, with input from media and coaches from around the nation.

D’Amigo, a forward from Binghamton, N.Y., played in 35 games, tallying 10 goals and 24 assists for 34 points. He was third on the team in points, second in assists, and fourth in goals. Three of his goals came on the power play, while one was shorthanded and a team-high three were game-winners.

In 21 league games, D’Amigo scored seven goals with 17 assists for 24 points. He was second in freshman scoring (1.14 points per game), third in overall shorthanded points (1 goal, 1 assist), and sixth in overall assists per game (0.81). Nationally, he ranked fifth in rookie points and sixth in points per game by a rookie (0.97).

A sixth-round (158th overall) draftee by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2009 National Hockey League Entry Draft, D’Amigo was the ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Year and was an All-Rookie Team honoree in 2009-10. He was also a two-time Weekly Honor Roll selection this season.

D’Amigo missed four games while he was playing for the United States World Junior Championship Team. He led that team to a gold medal by scoring 12 points (6 goals, 6 assists) to rank second in the tournament and on the team. He was first on the U.S. squad in goals and third in assists with a plus-7. D’Amigo was the team’s Player of the Game twice and had multiple-point efforts in each of the three games in the medal round.

Prior to arriving at Rensselaer, D’Amigo was a standout on the U.S. Under-18 National Development Team, where he posted 23 goals and 33 assists for 56 points in 53 games. He helped lead that squad to a gold medal at the U.S. World Championships and was named to the All-Tournament Team after leading the team in scoring with 13 points (4 goals, 9 assists).

D’Amigo also played for the U.S. National Under-17 Team in 2007-08, where he served as an assistant captain and was the only player on the squad to play in all 64 games.

Rensselaer concluded its season with an 18-17-4 record, including a 10-9-3 mark in ECAC Hockey. The Engineers advanced to the conference playoffs before being eliminated by Brown.
