Gionta says practice with Amerks is win-win
Brian Gionta is with the Amerks, but he does not play for the Amerks. The long time NHL star from Greece is a free agent. His plan is to get himself ready to try to earn a spot on the US Olympic hockey team. For now, it works well for him to practice with and try to mentor some of the young players on this year';s version of the Rochester Americans. At the moment there is no plan for Gionta to suit up and play in a game for the Amerks.
