Phantoms, sheriff to introduce new police dog at Saturday hockey game
A newly-acquired police dog will be introduced to the community at Saturday’s 7:05 p.m. Youngstown Phantoms hockey game at the Covelli Centre against the Sioux City Musketeers.
The Youngstown Phantoms are assisting the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office in raising money for the training and care of the 2 1/2-year-old Dutch Shepherd named Phantom.
The Fraternal Order of Police will be selling raffle tickets for various prizes at the game, with proceeds to be used toward the costs associated with the dog.
Phantom and his handler will be introduced to the community between periods of the game.
Saturday is Free Youth Jersey Night for the first 750 young people attending the game.
