PHANTOMS SECURE ROSTER FOR SUMMER SEASON
The Phantoms have secured the team's roster for 51st season of Phantom Hockey which is scheduled to begin in mid-June at Walker Ice & Fitness on Sunday nights. Under the leadership of netminder Kevin Wootton, the black, yellow and gray squad will feature the lineup of Trent Kik, Kyle Clark, Shawn DeBoer, Chris Laux, Nate Skoboda, Nick Allen, Brendan Bender, Ryan Moore, Andrew Erickson, Matt Zehr, Brad Zehr, Adam Porczynski, Pavol Fabian, Jake Blok and netminder Kevin Wootton on full-time slots. Dan Datema and Andrew Page will round out the current sub list, with additional members to be announced at a later date. The Phantoms will bid farewell to Jake Blok in late July, as Blok will be relocating out of the state. League fees for all fulltime members will be $125 which is due no later than the third game of the season.
RYAN MOORE PENS DEAL TO RETURN TO PHANTOM NATION
The West Michigan Phantoms have penned former teammate Ryan Moore to return to Phantom Nation effective immediately. Moore, who took a few seasons off of the ice, returns to the Black and Yellow in which he previously scored 114 goals, added 43 assists for a total of 157 points during his Phantom ice hockey career. Additionally, the Grandville native has compiled 177 penalty minutes. Moore brings grit, offense and plenty of locker room stories back to the Phantoms. Despite a late press release, Moore returned to the team in mid-April and has managed to already tally four goals in his Phantom return. Moore joins Brendan Bender as late additions to the Winter 2020-2021 season to help secure and bolster the team's lineup and bring some consistency to the roster.

PHANTOMFEST RETURNS SATURDAY, JULY 24TH
Having had to cancel PhantomFest last year due to Covid19, we are excited to announce that the annual party will return in 2021. This year, we are shifting to a private location to ensure State guidelines and restrictions do not cancel the event this year. While we will provide more information in the coming months, we can announce that the event will be held at Ian/Michelle's house near Grand Haven and that we do have a band lined up as well as a DJ with karaoke. The location is large enough with plenty of room for this party and the house is large enough for everyone to stay the night if needed. Be sure to circle Saturday, July 24th on your calendar and prepare for PhantomFest 2021 from Grand Haven!
