St. Francis High School is excited to welcome Coach Anthony Micucci as the new Director of Hockey Operations and Admissions Associate for the 2021-2022 school year.  A Frontier High School graduate, he has played both Junior B and Junior A hockey in Deerwood, MN. He also had a short stint with the defunct Buffalo Wings professional roller hockey team.    Coach Micucci has offered goalie camps, clinics and one-on-one training in the Buffalo area for the past 25 years through his Micucci Goalie School.  His goaltenders have participated in the OHL, NAHL, USHL, NCAA and other various junior hockey programs.

Coach Micucci's hockey philosophy is simple "Work hard and you will get results".  His enthusiasm to help our hockey players onto the next level while providing a positive experience is important to the school.  He is committed to the process that will enable our hockey players to have a great experience being part of the St. Francis brotherhood, and for our hockey program to be an extension of what the school emphasizes in the Franciscan education that our young men receive in the classroom.
