Corsi’s playing career included stints with the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers and the World Hockey Association’s Quebec Nordiques.  He also played internationally in Europe, Russia and China from 1980-92.  He represented Italy numerous times in international competition, including the 1984 Winter Olympics and eight World Ice Hockey Championships (1981-83, 1985-87, 1989-90).
