Hockey Down Under – Life as an AIHL Import

By Geoff Nichols - The Hockey Writers


The life of an expat playing in the Australian Ice Hockey League (AIHL) can be pretty fun but it is not always easy.

One such player is goalie Peter Di Salvo. Di Salvo is a native of Oakville, Ontario, and is rejoining the Perth Thunder after playing a portion of the 2015 season with the team.  Di Salvo is well traveled in the North American minor leagues seeing time with seven different teams in the ECHL and Southern Professional Hockey League over a four-year career.
