Playing career[edit]

DiCasmirro left home as a teenager to play Midget AAA hockey in Marquette, Michigan and later played for St. Cloud State University.[2] He was signed as a free agent in 2002 by the Edmonton Oilers and was sent to play in the minor leagues. In 2006, he signed as an unrestricted free agent with the Boston Bruins and was assigned to play right wing for the Providence Bruins of the AHL.[3] On December 6, 2007, he was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes along with a 5th round draft choice in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft for goaltender Alex Auld.[4]

He has played several seasons in the American Hockey League followed by Bolzano HC in the Italian Serie A, before being released on December 25, 2008.[5] Nate then signed a short-term contract to play with Swedish team Timrå IK on January 6, 2009.[6] Having played 10 games for the Elitserien team, he continued his visit to Sweden by signing for HockeyAllsvenskan newcomers Örebro HK on September 11, 2009.[7] He moved later in the season to the Austrian Hockey League for EC VSV and in 2010 he signed for Brunico in Serie A.

On August 23, 2015, DiCasmirro returned to the Austrian EBEL, signing for a second stint with Italian club, HC Bolzano, as a free agent on a one-year contract.[8]
