Perry Florio (born July 15, 1967(1967-07-15)), is a retired American professional ice hockey player who spent the majority of his career with the Johnstown Chiefs of the ECHL.


After playing two seasons at Providence College between 1985 and 1987, Florio transferred to Northern Michigan University, where he played ten games in his senior year in 1989. He started his pro career in the 1989-90 season for the Knoxville Cherokees of the East Coast Hockey League before going to the Johnstown Chiefs the next season. Save for a three-game stint with the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League in 1992, he played the rest of his professional career in Johnstown, retiring after the 1995 season.

Florio also played in Roller Hockey International for the Philadelphia Bulldogs in 1994 and 1995; he played in the RHI All-Star Game in 1994.


After retiring as a player, Florio became an assistant coach for the Roanoke Express of the ECHL in 1998, and was named head coach and general manager in 2000; he was fired in January 2003 with the team just out of first place, a move unpopular with the players.[1] He was promptly hired as interim head coach for the Anchorage Aces, with whom he finished the season, before going on to be the head coach for the Pee Dee Pride in the 2004 and 2005 seasons. He also was the head coach of the Elmira Jackals of the United Hockey League in 2006.
