Tony, aka “the Munchkin” has earned a reputation as a fiery player who battles every shift on the rink, playing with a lot of intensity. Although small in stature, Tony will play big on the rink and is not afraid to go to the dirty areas of the rink to create a scoring chance or set up a team mate. Tony will not put up big numbers as far as scoring goes, but, he will play with a lot of heart and give you everything he has, every shift. With Tony, you know what you are getting in a player.
Playing now in his 25th season and wearing his familiar number 14, Tony has been consistent and successful over the past 5 years in the Over-30 league, winning 5 championships in the last 10 seasons. A solid second line player, Tony can easily move over and play on the first line with no drop off in production.
