Devin DiDiomete(24) Chicago Express

After being released only a couple of games into the 2011/2012 season on a pto with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, 4th year pro winger Devin DiDiomete(24) was given the option of being reassigned to their ECHL affiliate Wheeling Nailers. He took them up on that offer signing a deal to return to the E for the first time since ’09/’10, when he was with Charlotte Checkers as reassigned by Hartford Wolf Pack for 15 games of seasoning.

Last season he had 303 pims in 63 games and even put up 6 goals and 4 assists. Turns out that after his entry level contract expired and three years in the system, New York Rangers were done with him.

Originally drafted by Calgary Flames in 2006, 5th round (#187 overall), he was scooped up by the Rangers to groom.

Follow him on Twitter @deeds2424. He’s quite the comic.

Wheeling waived him a few days ago but on 11/8 he signed with Chicago Express.
