Peter Sarno (born July 26, 1979) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre currently playing for Alleghe Hockey in the Italian Serie A. He was selected in the sixth round of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, 141st overall, by the Edmonton Oilers.

Playing career[edit]

After completing a relatively successful junior career with the Windsor Spitfires and the Sarnia Sting of the OHL, Sarno apprenticed in the Oilers farm system, playing for their AHL team, the Hamilton Bulldogs. After one season in Finland, Sarno returned to North America, where he played for the Oilers new AHL franchise, the Toronto Roadrunners. He also made his NHL debut, playing six games with the big club. Shortly thereafter, he was dealt to the Vancouver Canucks, who wanted more depth at their centre position. He played one and a half seasons for their AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose, before signing on with the Syracuse Crunch (affiliated with the Columbus Blue Jackets).

Sarno then moved to Europe, signing with HC Fribourg-Gottéron in the Nationalliga A in Switzerland in 2006, followed by three seasons in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga in Germany, two with the Hamburg Freezers and one with Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg. In 2010, Sarno moved to Italy and signed with the Serie A club HC Alleghe.
