The Youngstown Phantoms are part of the United States Hockey League (USHL). The USHL is the country's top junior hockey league, classified as Tier I, which is the highest, and only junior hockey league in this category in the United States. Prior to the 2009 season, the Phantoms were a member of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) for six seasons. The USHL league is made of 17 teams, which range from North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The Youngstown Phantom team objectives are to win the USHL Clark Cup, presented to the USHL's playoff champion, and the Anderson Cup, presented to the League's regular season champion. Home games are played in the Covelli Centre in downtown Youngstown, Ohio, which seats 5,000 fans. The Phantoms have seen over 100 players commit to NCAA Division I schools, and three players drafted by National Hockey League (NHL) teams in Max Letunov, JJ Piccinich, and Nathan Walker. Also, a total of five alumni have signed NHL contracts including Walker, Scott Mayfield, Brandon Saad, Jiri Sekac, and Andrej Sustr. In addition, Mayfield, Saad, Sustr and Sekac have seen action with their respective NHL clubs, and Saad has had the honor of lifting the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2013. The Youngstown Phantoms are co-owned by Bruce Zoldan, and Troy and Aafke Loney. Zoldan is CEO of Phantom Fireworks; America's largest fireworks company, and over the past ten years through his commitment and generosity in supporting youth hockey, ice skating, and other family events and the Ice Zone and Covelli Centre, hockey has become an integral part of the Youngstown community. In March of 2014, the Phantoms' ownership added Troy and Aafke Loney. Troy played 12 years in the NHL with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Anaheim Mighty Ducks, New York Islanders and the New York Rangers. He also won two Stanley Cups with the Penguins, and was the inaugural team captain of the Mighty Ducks before becoming part of the top executive groups for several Fortune 250 and 500 companies. His wife, Aafke, is the Founder and President of Business & Education Connected, LLC, with leadership experience in public and vocational technical schools. The Loney's first involvement with the Youngstown Phantoms was through their son, Ty, who played for the Phantoms from 2009-2011 and, while in Youngstown, earned a Division I college scholarship to the University of Denver hockey team. The Phantoms produce top talent on and off the ice. Phantoms' players are very active in the Mahoning Valley, and can be found giving back on a regular basis from reading in schools, assisting in soup kitchens, or teaching youth hockey players. The Youngstown Phantoms desire to continue to give back to the great people of Youngstown area.
