USA Hockey Arena 10-16-21
The Phantoms took the show on the road on Saturday, October 16, 2021 to play a Black vs. Gray game at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan. The arena, formerly known as Compuware Ice Arena, is currently home to USA Hockey's National Team Development Program. Despite climbing out to a 2-0 first period lead, Team Gray would watch as Team Black would tally the next four goals and add an empty net goal at the end to take claim to a 5-2 victory. Team Gray was boosted by 10-year Jase Neiger on the forward line, as the oldest child of Matt Neiger from the Lakeside Locomotives. Following the Black vs. Gray game, a group of 34 tickets would be sold to watch the Team USA U17s battle the Madison Capitals at USA Hockey Arena. The group was split into a Black Team and a Gray Team via a player draft earlier in the week to help keep both sides balanced and it worked. Chris DeBoer (Black) and Keith Moorman (Gray) would captains for the event. Andrew Page created the game medals for all precipitants shown below.
