The Arena houses one NHL-size ice sheet, one smaller practice rink and the Pal’s Corner Cafe. Black Bear also said the seller, Frank DiCristina, will join its operations team. He has joined the company as vice president of operations and will oversee all four BBSG ice rinks in the Chicago area.
After overseeing the Phantoms for the past four USHL seasons, Troy and Aafke Loney announced on Friday that they have sold their half of the franchise. Running the team day-to-day will be Keith Primeau, who, like Troy Loney, played 15 seasons in the NHL.
