Windsor's Anthony Salinitri is back in Italy for a second season. The former Windsor Lancers forward scored 21 goals and added 25 assists in 39 games in his first season with Asiago. "I really loved it." said the 24-year old.
"If you play any of the top seven teams in the ALPS League it was equivalent to I would say in-between the East Coast Hockey League and the AHL."
Playing in Italy provided Salinitri a chance to get in touch with his roots. "To get my citizenship and to be able to do that was a big part of me going over there."
Asiago Hockey was promoted to the ICE Hockey League(International Central European Hockey League). "A little more travel. The level is a lot higher. A lot of former AHL, college and even some NHL guys so it'll be a lot more competitive."
