Playing career

Bellissimo, brother of Daniel Bellissimo, played NCAA college hockey with the Western Michigan Broncos men's ice hockey team before beginning his professional career in the American Hockey League with the San Antonio Rampage near the end of the 2004–05 AHL season.

In 2007, after three seasons of playing in the North American minor leagues, Bellissimo arrived in Europe to play in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) with the ERC Ingolstadt. In 2009, after two brief experiences in SM-liiga, Finland, and Austria, he returned to Ingolstadt.[1]

During the 2009-10 season, Bellissimo arrived at HC Asiago where his brother Daniel was playing already.[2] After winning the title with Asiago, for family reasons he decided to return to North America to play his final 2010–11 season in the ECHL with the Las Vegas Wranglers.[3]
