PHANTOMS TO RETURN TO WIFC FOR SUMMER
As the Phantoms stare at final weeks of the Winter season through the front windshield, the Phantoms are already gearing up for a return to Walker Ice & Fitness for the Summer 2020 season. The team has been working behind the scenes for a few weeks on securing, planning and creating a roster for what will become the 49th season of Phantom Hockey. The team is still working to determine if Sunday's will be the playing night for the summer season or if the team will play on Monday's as was displayed during the 2019 summer season. Regardless, the summer season will again be a busy time for anyone lacing up the skates as players enjoy vacation, golf and the other summer and warm weather events that have been on hold during the Fall-Winter-Spring months of the current season. During the upcoming summer, the team will welcome two new children to the team's family as players Kyle Clark (Jenna) and Andrew Erickson (Laura) are expecting their first childen. Addtionally, Zach Kinney will be tieing the knot in September to his finance Kathryn. If you are interested in joining the Phantoms (most likely as a sub), please reach out to Kevin Wootton at 231-638-1396 as very limited slots remain.
MERCY HEALTH GAME POSTPONED
The Phantom Black vs. Gray scheduled to take place at Mercy Health Arena on Saturday, March 28th has been postponed due to the COVID19 virus. The Phantoms will be working with Mercy Health Arena to reschedule this game prior to Summer 2020 if possible, once the threat from the Coronavirus has passed. All players will be notifed once a rescheduled date and time have been determined. It is expected very little time will occur between the new date and payment date. All players and fans who paid for the originally scheduled March 28th game have been issued refunds via PayPal, CashApp or Venmo. Cost for the rescheduled game will be cheaper for players, as the USHL and Muskegon Lumberjacks have canceled the balance of their 2019-2020 regular season and post-season. Please stay tune for the latest information on Phantom social media.
