Phantoms’ season ended

YOUNGSTOWN — The Youngstown Phantoms’ season has come to a close as the United States Hockey League Board of Governors has voted unanimously to cancel the remainder of the 2019-20 regular season and playoffs.

“The decision was not an easy one to make, but was a necessity in order to keep our athletes, staffs and fans in all 16 of our communities safe amid the international health risk,” USHL commissioner Tom Garrity said. “While we believe our product is the best junior hockey that fans can view, we also understand the health of our athletes, employees, fans and communities is more important during this time.”

The USHL will announce the 2019-20 season awards in the coming weeks.

The Phantoms will address questions from fans during the next few weeks. Follow the team’s website, www.youngstownphantoms.com, or email the club at info@youngstownphantoms.com to get the latest news from the Phantoms.
