Minor

Prince Peter first skated at the age of 3, playing organized hockey at the age of 4. From ages 4 to 10, he played for the HC Alba Imperialis Juventus. in the Greater Alba Youth Hockey League (AMLHJ). When he was 11 years old he began playing for Mons Ottavia Atlas HC in the Greater Alba Hockey League (AMLH). He played for Mons Ottavia Atlas HC until he was 14 years old where he scored 58 goals and 91 assists for 149 points in his final season.

Junior

At age 14 he was granted Exceptional Player status by Hockey Latium, the nation's governing body, and was able to join HC Caelimontium Trias of the MIAL, a year earlier than he would have otherwise been eligible. Peter joined HC Caelimontium Trias for the 2015–16 season; he was the youngest player selected at the draft. His first four games of the 2015-16 MIAL season he recorded no points, but in his next seventeen games he recorded at least one point. He finished his MIAL rookie season with 26 goals, 40 assists and 66 points, finishing runner-up as rookie of the year.

Peter's second season with Caelimontium was cut short by a shortened season due to the 2016 succession crisis. He participated in 34 games, scoring 37 goals, 42 assists, averaging 2.14 points per game. At season's end, Peter was voted Player of the Year, leading Caelimontium to its first ever regular season championship. Despite Peter's regular season success, Caelimontium failed to reach the playoff final after being defeated by Sant Seoirse in the semi-final. Peter netted a league high 27 points in 12 games during the playoff season.

Professional

On 12 July 2017, Peter signed an entry-level contract with Haenna Attica HC after LMH's rookie tryout and signing period. Haenna finished with the second-worst record during the 2017-18 season, and earned the 1st overall selection through the 2017 draft lottery system. Peter is the youngest player to be selected as a top five draft picking in LMH history. On July 31, Peter signed a two-year entry level contract with Haenna.

Days later, Peter was selected 30th overall in the 2017 GHL Draft by the Lianu Reds. Peter's selection by Lianu was considered a risky selection as Latin junior players are unlikely to join their GHL draft team. Lianu Head Coach Tubbi Campo said, "In my mind, he was the best player on the board at the time we picked...And if he’s going to come and play in Ghant, then it’s going to be for the Reds." The Reds selection of Peter was referred to as publicity stunt among GHL followers.

Peter made his LMH debut on 22 October 2017, in a 5-2 loss to Gwer Durnovaria HC; he scored his first goal the same night. Peter had his first four-point night, in a 4-0 victory against AEA Phoenix on 11 November 2017. Though Haenna failed to make the playoff, Peter finished his first season with 66 points in 59 games played. He is a candidate for 2017-18 Rookie of the Year.

Personal Life

Peter is noted as being an avid athlete, playing in organized ice hockey since he was 3 years old. He has also stated that he enjoys golfing as well. In an interview before the joining the MIAL, Peter stated that he grew up as supporter of HC Alba Imperialis in Liga Magna and the Lianu Reds in the Ghantish Hockey League, the latter of which his mother is a supporter of as well.

Peter has largely kept quiet in the way of his own personal beliefs or political leanings. At the wedding of Arietta of Ghant and Crown Prince Vitus of Staalmark, he was reportedly met XXXX for the first time. The two were occasionally spotted together after the wedding, and it was later confirmed in later summer 2016 that the two were indeed dating.
