The Youngstown Phantoms are a Tier I Junior A ice hockey team that plays in the East Division of the United States Hockey League. The team plays home games at the 5,200-seat Covelli Centre in Youngstown, Ohio. The team is owned by Bruce J. Zoldan, founder and CEO of fireworks brand Phantom Fireworks, hence the team's name.

History[edit]

From their inaugural season until 2009, the Phantoms played in the North American Hockey League's North Division, with home games at the 1,000-seat Boardman Ice Zone in the suburb of Boardman, Ohio. From 2005 until 2009, the team was known as the Mahoning Valley Phantoms, because the Central Hockey League's Youngstown SteelHounds moved into the county. However, soon after the SteelHounds shut down, the Phantoms started playing most of their games in the city of Youngstown, and with the move to the USHL, re-adopted the old Youngstown Phantoms name.

Two players from the Youngstown Phantoms have been drafted into the NHL. Defenseman Scott Mayfield (2009–11) was drafted in the 2nd round, 34th overall pick,[1][2] by the New York Islanders in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. Goalie Matthew Mahalak (2009–10) was drafted in the 6th round,[3] 163rd overall pick, by the Carolina Hurricanes also in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

On August 10, 2011, the Youngstown Phantoms announced 29-year-old Chicago native Anthony Noreen as head coach, making him the third head coach in the team's history. Before joining the Youngstown Phantoms, Noreen was an assistant coach for three seasons at his alma mater, University of Wisconsin - Steven's Point.[4] In April 2012, Noreen's contract was extended through the 2013–14 season.[5]
