A former Philadelphia Flyers prospect has sadly passed away at the age of 43.

We have some sad news to share in the hockey world on Monday afternoon as according to the 'Missin Curfew' podcast, former Philadelphia Flyers prospect Tony Voce has passed away at the age of 43.
"Sad to learn that Tony Voce, former Philadelphia Phantom and Boston College player has passed away at age 43

Voce was born in Philly and was a friend of @larryfknflowers

Rest in Peace Tony 🙏🏻"

The Philadelphia native was a standout at Boston College in the NCAA during his four years there, amassing 167 points in 159 career games. In 2004, Voce turned pro and signed a contract with his hometown team, the Philadelphia Flyers, as an undrafted free agent.
Voce spent the majority of his career in the minors in North America, including three seasons in the American Hockey League with the Philadelphia Phantoms and Grand Rapids Griffins, winning the Calder Cup in 2005, before heading to Europe for two seasons where he made stops in Germany, Finland and Austria. He returned to North America in 2009 and spent the year with the Ontario Reign, who were in the ECHL at the time, before retiring at the conclusion of the season.
The thoughts of everyone here at Blade of Steel are with Voce's family and friends at this difficult time.
