Trevisani's tying Olympic goal puts Carlisle on the map

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Carter Trevisani's wedding anniversary present to his grandparents was two days early, but Betty and Jim McEntee of Carlisle aren't complaining. In fact, they couldn't be more proud of their grandson.

Carter, who played defence for the Italian Olympic team, scored a goal during the host team's match with Switzerland Feb. 21. "The last thing I said to him (just before the Olympics began) was, 'It's our 60th wedding anniversary on the 23rd, but I don't want any gifts, I just want a goal'," his grandmother said. "Lo and behold, he got a goal. That goal means an awful lot to us."

McEntee said she cried tears of happiness when the goal was scored during a TSN telecast which she and her husband watched with bated breath. "Carlisle, Ontario got put on the map," she said, explaining that a banner across the bottom of the television screen identified Carter as being from Carlisle. The banner was flashed several times across the screen so Carlisle got plenty of profile, McEntee said.

Carter, one of nine Italo-Canadians on the Italian team, scored the 2-2 goal against the Swiss during a play off the point during a power play. The former Ottawa 67 defenceman got the puck off the boards on his backhand, pulled it to his forehand and skated to the centre of the ice before rifling off a slapshot. The puck went in the net clean on the goalie's glove side.

Watching the action live from the stands in Torino were Carter's parents, Gail and Dominic Trevisani. They traveled to Italy, Dominic's homeland, to watch their son play hockey.

For the past three seasons, their 23-year-old son has played in the Italian Hockey League. He was encouraged to go to Italy a couple of years after being drafted by the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes in 2001. Carter, who honed his skills on the ice as a member of the Flamborough Hockey Association, was never called up for regular season play with the Hurricanes so when the opportunity to play hockey in Italy emerged, he quickly signed up.

Although he scored a tying goal in the Italy versus Switzerland game, the match ended in a disappointing 4-3 Swiss victory.

The next big challenge facing Carter and the Italian team is the world championships being held in Latvia in May. Once again, he'll get a chance to show his hockey prowess on the world stage and he can hardly wait to lace up his skates for the competition.
