The Youngstown Phantoms are the direct USHL affiliate of the Maryland Black Bears, both of which are owned and operated by Black Bear Sports Group. The USHL is the country’s top junior hockey league, sending more players to the Division-I NCAA and pro hockey than any other American league. Home games are played in the 5,500 seat Covelli Centre in downtown Youngstown, Ohio. The Black Bears and Phantoms work closely to retain top talent and advance players to the next level.
The Phantoms have seen over 100 players commit to NCAA Division I schools, and five players drafted by National Hockey League (NHL).
