Zoldan criticizes city’s study of Covelli Centre’s future
The future of the Youngstown Phantoms remains anything but clear as the amateur hockey team heads into the homestretch of its fourth USHL season.
A recent study commissioned by Youngstown recommended the city stop providing the Covelli Centre for Phantoms’ home games.
Phantoms owner Bruce Zoldan criticized the study as “juvenile. My feeling is that the city wasted a lot of money on that report.”
Zoldan believes the eight-year-old arena needs a sports anchor.
“I want to be there next year and will make every effort to do so.”
However, Zoldan said it would be foolish to pay $75,000 to the city to ensure the team’s fifth season.
