Anthony Pitti #27 Forward ASU Sun Devils

Former Broncos Varsity forward Anthony Pitti is currently playing hockey for the Arizona State University Sun Devils D2 ACHA team.  Anthony played all four years with the Barrington Broncos Hockey Club.  "It is still unbelievable when I think to myself that I play college hockey. It’s my freshman year here at ASU and I am having the most fun playing hockey here than I ever had.
