Gionta's career comes full circle with Amerks opportunity


The last time Brian Gionta played at the Blue Cross Arena, he didn't score. But Amerks coach Chris Taylor did.

Gionta played for the New Jersey Devils against the Buffalo Sabres, in a 2-2 tie back in November of 2003.

14 years later, the Rochester native has just about done it all, with the exception of suiting up for his hometown team in his hometown building.

That will change on Friday, when Gionta plays one game for the Rochester Americans before he leaves for the Olympics next week.

Toby Motyka has the story from Amerks practice Thursday.
