Phantoms release schedule

Phantoms-Hockey

Youngstown, OH – The Youngstown Phantoms, in conjunction with the United States Hockey League, announced today their schedule for the 2013-14 regular season. The Phantoms will begin their fifth season in the USHL on the road Sept. 20 vs. Team USA before returning to the Covelli Centre to host the Green Bay Gamblers in their home opener Friday, Sept. 27. Game time is set for 7:05 p.m. EST.

The Phantoms will play a traditional, 60-game schedule in 2013-14, including 30 home dates at the Covelli Centre. Twenty-eight of the club’s 30 home games will be played on Friday or Saturday, with one additional Sunday matinée. The lone weekday home date, Wednesday, Jan. 22 vs. the Indiana Ice, is set for the Phantom’s annual Hockey for Health School Day Game.

Conference rivalries are the highlight of the 2013-14 schedule and each remains pivotal with only the top four teams from each conference advancing to the Clark Cup Playoffs. As the Phantoms vie for a third straight postseason appearance, they will host Indiana five times, and both the Muskegon Lumberjacks and Team USA four times.

Youngstown will play four-game series – two home and two away – with their remaining divisional foes, Green Bay, the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders and the defending Clark Cup champion Dubuque Fighting Saints, who will make their first visit to Youngstown Friday, Feb. 28 in what is sure to be a thrilling rematch of the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals.

Additionally, fans will have the opportunity to watch the Phantoms clash with six of the Western Conference’s eight teams at the Covelli Centre: the Lincoln Stars (Oct. 19), Sioux Falls Stampede (Nov. 1-2), Fargo Force (Nov. 8-9), Waterloo Black Hawks (Jan. 17), Des Moines Buccaneers (March 1) and Sioux City.

Phantoms season tickets and flex packages the 2013-14 season are on sale now. Call the Phantoms office 330.747.PUCK (7825) for more information or to reserve seats today. For all the latest Phantoms news, visit www.YoungstownPhantoms.com.
