Three players that made an impression in a Rochester Americans uniform last season have now moved on and found jobs with other teams.
Jimmy Bonneau signed a one year deal with the Hamilton Bulldogs. Bonneau made headlines in the world of hockey fights last season when he fought Jon Mirasty four times in two games in October 2009. Tough player who stands up for his team and not afraid to back down from anyone.
Jamie Johnson signed with the Detroit Red Wings along with Chris Minard and goalie Joey MacDonald. All three were signed for North Division rival Grand Rapids Griffins and immediately made that team better.
Steve MacIntyre returned to the Edmonton Oilers with a one year deal, the same team that claimed him off of waivers in 2008 and then waived him in 2009. He’ll have a great chance at cracking the Oilers lineup.
Highlight of the season was seeing MacIntyre knockout Jeremy Yablonski:
Best of luck elsewhere guys and don’t beat up on the Amerks too much when you’re an opponent!
