Not to mention the past years of IHL – Serie A with stars who won two of their eight Serie A titles against the Gialonieri. But the present must be written. With four victories, Asiago took twelfth place in the standings while Val Pusteria, despite his very poor start, had more victories than defeats and left the bottom of the standings. Although Brunico’s team is only two places ahead of Asiago in the standings, with an active winning streak of three matches, it is one of the most exciting teams at the moment.

With this in mind, the first step that goes to sealing off the new Farm team relationship involves Stellato defender Gabriele Parini, who is moving to Tofane’s shadow to play for Cortina in the Alps Hockey League.
