A few days ago, we mentioned (go to post) that OHL grad John Parco was playing for Team Italy at the 2010 IIHF World Hockey Championships. There is one other Ontario Hockey League grad, a teammate of Parco’s, playing for Italy.
Nick Plastino played four seasons in the OHL with the Barrie Colts from 2003-04 to 2006-07. Undrafted, Plastino left for Italy immediately after junior and has played with HC Asiago of the Lega Italiana Hockey su Ghiaccio for the past three seasons.
HC Asiago finished third in the nine team league during the regular season in 2009-10. Nick was sixth on the team in scoring. The team was led in scoring by another Barrie Colt grad, Michael Henrich.
To view Nick Plastino’s profile page on the HC Asiago’s official website, go to the site, select Senior on the toolbar and click on roster in the dropdown list. Scroll across until you come to his name and click on his picture.
