Patterson Promoted to GM of Youngstown Phantoms

Brad Patterson, head coach of the Youngstown Phantoms, has been promoted to head coach and general manager of the hockey team. Patterson joined the Phantoms coaching staff in 2009 following a collegiate and professional career that included two seasons with the former Youngstown Steelhounds. “Brad has developed into a first-rate coach during his time with the Phantoms,” says Bruce J. Zoldan, co-owner of the team. His first task in his expanded role will be selecting the initial 30-man roster for the 2019-2020 roster, adds Murry Gunty, co-owner of the Phantoms and CEO of Black Bear Sports Group. Main player selection begins June 12 in Pittsburgh.
