The Toronto Maple Leafs signed 19-year-old Jerry D’Amigo to a three-year, entry-level contract on Wednesday, according to The Globe and Mail.

In 108 games over three seasons with the U.S. National Under-18 Team, D’Amigo scored 36 goals and 51 assists.

“We’ve been pleased with Jerry’s progression over the last 12 months,” general manager Brian Burke said in a statement. “Seth Appert and the rest of the coaching staff at R.P.I. have done a really nice job of preparing Jerry for the next stage in his development. We look forward to having him at training camp.”
