“What the Youngstown Phantoms are for us is a chance to give young men the ability to pursue their dreams, whether it’s pro hockey, college hockey or they just want to play junior hockey. We thought that the whole framework in Youngstown of giving young men the chance to pursue their dreams should be the same for young women, so that’s why we thought Youngstown would be a great location for it,” Gunty said.
