Anthony Starzi has been a mainstay for the Knights in the EHL this season. Through 27 games, the ’98 forward has registered 21 goals and 21 assists, ranked second on his team and eighth in the Eastern Hockey League. This week he’s been called up to the Philadelphia Rebels of the NAHL.

The Rebels enter Friday in second place in the NAHL’s East division, one point behind the Knights NAHL team. Starzi’s eye-catching speed, effort, and scoring ability will fit in with Philadelphia’s 3rd ranked offense.

“I’m very excited for Anthony,” said Knights EHL head coach Josh Fusco. “The hard work he has put in is paying off and I’m very proud of everything he’s done so far this season as a Knight. He has earned this opportunity.”

Starzi has been a machine in all situations for the Knights. His three shorthanded goals are tied for the second-highest mark in the EHL. His five goals and four assists while on the man advantage have helped spur a drastic turnaround for the Knights power play unit, currently ranked 7th in the league.

“It just goes to show what we are doing here works,” said Fusco. “Moving guys like Anthony on to the next level is rewarding for all parties. He’s been the hardest working kid day in and day out for this team. I hope he does well, and I will be cheering him on every step of the way.”

Starzi will join the Rebels in their final games before the holiday break. The entire Knights organization thanks Anthony for his tremendous effort on and off the ice to help better his team and the Knights program. They will be eagerly following him every step of the way of his career, rooting for him at every turn.
