Tony Colucci was the consummate 'power forward' who was a dominate force in the game of ball hockey since he arrived on the AAA scene in the mid 1980's. He established a presence in both ends of the rink with his size, speed and offensive savvy. One of the finest faceoff men in the game, only his spirit and intense competitive nature superceded his skills as a player that ultimately made him a proven winner at all levels of participation throughout his career in the OBHA.

Tony Colucci was a team leader and a perennial all-star center who was a member of six (6) League Championship teams. He holds the dubious distinction of having won three successive OBHA AAA titles in the 1980's (1987, 1988, 1989) with three different teams while adding a fourth to that list as a member of the Femview Rangers later in 1995.

"T.C.'s" trend of successes continued at the national level of competition as he captured three gold medals in a triumvirate of uniforms (Topguns, Eagles, Rangers) to add to his prized collection of ball hockey ducats.

Tony Colucci was the complete package. He was a dedicated, highly skilled, hardworking and most sought after individual whose myriad of successes is a testament to his diversion as a player. Tony presently remains active participating in the Masters division where he has recently added yet another provincial title to his trophy case. In 1997 the NWTBHL presented Tony with the Golden Jet Award in recognition for his lifetime achievement of excellence in the sport. He is indeed one of the premier practitioners in the game of ball hockey who has earned a rightful place in the OBHA Players Hall of Fame.
