Anthony Luciani (born May 13, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward currently under contract with the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL.

Playing career[edit]

Luciani played three seasons (2008–2011) of major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League with the Erie Otters.

On April 7, 2011, the Florida Panthers signed Luciani to an entry-level contract. He immediately joined the Panthers' AHL affiliate Rochester Americans, playing three games before the end of their 2010–11 AHL season.[1]

Following the 2013–14 season, the Panthers did not extend a qualifying offer to Luciani and as a result he became an unrestricted free agent.[2] He opted to remain in the ECHL in signing a one-year contract with the Toledo Walleye on September 22, 2014.[3] On March 9, 2015, Toledo would trade Luciani to the Gwinnett Gladiators for Joe Stejskal[4] and then flipped to the Greenville Road Warriors the next day for Scott Arnold.[5]

On June 23, 2015, Luciani signed his first contract abroad, agreeing to a one-year deal with Norwegian club, Sparta Warriors in Sarpsborg of the GET-ligaen.[6] Luciani appeared in just 14 games with the Warriors before opting for a mid-season transfer to the Italian Serie A with HC Asiago.

Scoring at a better then point-per-game average in Europe, Luciani returned to North America as a free agent following the season. On September 13, 2016, he opted to continue in the ECHL, signing a one-year deal with the Idaho Steelheads.[7]
