This transfer has become apparent: Salinitri is a fox

HCB Südtirol Alperia announced its first new signing on Tuesday. With Anthony Salinitri, a player who has long been associated with the club is moving to the state capital.

After the confirmation of Glen Hanlon as head coach and the contract extension of goalkeeper Samuel Harvey, the ink is dry on the next personnel appointment: Anthony Salinitri is moving from the Stavanger Oilers to Bozen and is supposed to score goals for the HCB.

The Italian-Canadian enjoyed his training in Canada and played for a total of five seasons in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), where he collected 271 points in 346 games. After his junior year, he moved to the University of Windsor. After the entire 2020/21 season was canceled in the USports league due to the corona pandemic, the 1,80 meter tall and 82 kilogram heavy Salinitri moved to Asiago the following summer. With the Stellati he won the Alps Hockey League (AlpsHL) in his first season and was also named most valuable player. Even after promotion to the ICE Hockey League (ICEHL), the left-handed shooter showed his class with 45 points in 49 games.

There was already talk of a move to HC Bozen last summer, but Salinitri ultimately decided to join the Graz99ers. He was unable to repeat his performance from the previous year for the latecomer to the table, but he still scored 17 goals. At the end of the season, Salinitri moved to the Stavanger Oilers in Norway, where he impressed with 17 points in 22 games. Now he moves to Bolzano, where he played in the World Cup with Italy this year and meets a former teammate: With Sam Harvey, he briefly played in the Canadian U17 national team.

Salinitri's first words as a fox

“Bozen has what it takes to win the championship,” explains Salinitri in a Foxes press release. “They have proven that over the last two years and that is one of the reasons why I chose the Foxes. It will also be nice to see some of my national team colleagues again. The experience at the World Cup was incredible, it was the first time for me in the Azzurri jersey and playing in front of the Sparkasse Arena crowd was breathtaking,” the newcomer continued.
