A.P. started youth hockey at the young age of 6 years old and quickly fell in love with the game.  He played AAA hockey in New York for the Long Island Gulls until the age of 16 when he was drafted to the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. At the age of 20, A.P. began and enjoyed an 8-year professional hockey career.

After retiring, Anthony was hired by the NHL’s Florida Panthers, as a skills and rehab coach.

A.P. has been a vital and consistent coach for the Calder Memorial Trophy winning (Rookie of the Year), and 2X NHL All-Star, Aaron Ekblad, and was instrumental in his injury rehab during the 2021 off-season.
