Yes he can.

He fits the requirements to get his citizenship in Italy (without military service)... and I am sure he hasn't represented Canada at any point.

I'm not sure about it... it seems that you have to play at least 2 years in the Italian League before you can join Team Italy...

Well, I was just going by the citizenship requirements, and he does meet those...

As for who can play on the team, I didn't have that information. That being said, I think they'd take anyone that they can get!

To be honest, I'd just like to see some NHLers playing in Italy: I'd be really happy to see them playing in Torino 2006 against Italy as well, to me it doesn't matter which team they play for...

Torino is in the north of Italy in the Piemonte district, an area filled with rich culture and cuisine, the byproducts of over three millennia of human occupation. Northerners are said to be more influenced by European customs than their southern counterparts who are steeped in Italian traditions, but hockey is still a very foreign concept for all Italians.

Just one comment, 'cause that is not completely true: Italy is unfortunately a soccer biased country , but we also have a Hockey League since 1925... ok, our League sucks, no question about it...
