Anthony Stewart Named President of
Kitchener-Waterloo Siskins


Anthony Stewart is the new President of the Kitchener-Waterloo Junior B Siskins.

A press release from the team announcing his appointment stated that his hire, along with others, “look to bring diversity, community enrichment and continued excellence in the Kitchener Waterloo Community.”

The former first round pick of the Florida Panthers played six seasons in the NHL before embarking on a broadcasting career. He has also been at the forefront of social impact in the hockey world through his work as Chairman of the charity organization, Hockey Equality.

“As a former teammate of Anthony’s, I couldn’t think of a better leader to carry forward the great history of the Siskins,” shared Rane Carnegie, the grandson of Herb Carnegie.

Rane and Anthony were teammates on the North York Canadiens AAA (1994-96) and Deuce Recruits Elite Summer Team (1997-2000). As Black players, it was a significant milestone when both were selected in the first round of the 2001 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Draft.

This past January, Stewart served as a panelist on the “Catalyst Conversation II: Grassroots Reality – how is hockey becoming inclusive?” at The Carnegie Initiative Summit in Toronto.
