David Leggio leaves Amerks, signs with Capitals Organization
David Leggio played two years with the Rochester Americans. He was named team MVP in both of those seasons.
Needless to say, the Amerks will miss him.
Leggio signed a two-way contract with the Washington Capitals organization, meaning he will likely begin the season as the goalie for the Hershey Bears.
The Williamsville native took over as the starter in net for the Amerks in 2011 and was the backbone of the team for two seasons.
Leggio said he loved his time in Rochester and it was his dream to one day play goalie for his hometown team, the Buffalo Sabres. But it wasn't meant to be.
