Former Penguin Loney joins Phantoms ownership

YOUNGSTOWN — Former Pittsburgh Penguins forward Troy Loney and his wife, Aafke, are becoming equal partners with Bruce Zoldan with the Youngstown Phantoms hockey club.

Under the agreement, which is dependent upon USHL review and approval, Loney will oversee the day-to-day business and hockey operations of the Youngstown Phantoms.

“I am excited for the opportunity to build upon the foundation that the Phantoms have laid in the Steel Valley, Western Pennsylvania, and the USHL as a whole,” said Loney. “I have seen firsthand how the USHL has become a breeding ground for Division I talent, as well as the NHL.

“I continue to be enthused with the development of the league and its players, and I can’t wait to get started in Youngstown.”

I hope Troy can rally some interest in the sport around here. These boys love playing the game of hockey and leave their families to play in Y-town. I just hope he can keep the team in Youngstown.

I really would like to see the Phantoms develop an association with the Pittsburgh Penguins - maybe this is the catalyst. I still think "SteelPens", with the Pen Pen skating penguin, maybe wearing a hardhat, would be really cool to see. And it fits the YSU Pens vibe as well!

Regardless, congrats to the Phantoms for making this move. Its good quality hockey in a gorgeous arena!
