Playing career[edit]

On March 18, 2008, LoVecchio was signed as a free agent to a two-year entry level contract by the Boston Bruins after attending the Western Michigan University and was assigned to their AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins, for the remainder of the 2007–08 AHL season.[1] In the off-season, however, LoVecchio sustained a concussion from skating and was forced to miss the entire 2008–09 season.[2]

On December 9, 2010, he was traded from the Bruins, along with Jordan Knackstedt, to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Sean Zimmerman.[3]

After his second season abroad with Lillehammer IK of the GET-ligaen, LoVecchio opted to change European leagues for the third consecutive year, signing a one-year contract with Hungarian club, Alba Volán Székesfehérvár who compete in the EBEL on June 23, 2014.[4]
