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.

You sound more like a current employee/family member than ex-employee, as i've never heard a single good thing said about the working conditions there. The only "Juvenile" thing here is Mr. Zoldans ego. He forces his employees to work the hockey games, so that they can see where the raise money has gone, first hand, for the past 5-6 years. Yes no raises in YEARS because of "the bad economy", yet somehow he can afford to blow 200k+ a year on his rich boy toy.
