Custom Mouthguards – Don’t miss out on this great deal

mouthguardThe Bantam A White team will be offering custom mouth guards for all Phantoms Youth players. Dr. Brian Loftus, an orthodontist and father of 2 Phantoms Youth players, and his team at Easton Orthodontics will be making the mouth guards.

A custom mouth guard requires taking an impression, or mold, of the teeth. Though these impressions are normally taken at the dentist’s office, to make this as convenient as possible, Dr. Loftus and his staff will come to Steel Ice Center on 3 selected days to take the impressions. The mouth guards will then be made in his lab and ready for distribution about 2 weeks later.

6 different colors will be offered (black, orange, blue, green, red, and pink). The player’s name (and number if you would like) will be on the mouth guard for identification. The mouth guard will not have a strap. This is intentionally done, so the mouth guard stays in the mouth! Though these mouth guards can be made for players with braces, it is not recommended, because they tend to not fit very well after several months.

Though the cost of these mouth guards is normally $60 to $75, these mouth guards will be made for a cost of $35.

He amassed 411 penalty minutes as an undersized fighter as he consistently stepped up to some of the top heavyweights in the NHL. He also scored one goal and six assists for the Flyers.

A native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Cote signed an AHL contract with the Philadelphia Phantoms prior to the 2004-05 season and helped the team to a Calder Cup championship. He signed an NHL contract with the Flyers for the 2005-06 season but spent most of the next two years with the Phantoms before eventually making his NHL debut against the New York Islanders on March 24, 2007. Cote earned a full-time roster spot with the Flyers out of training camp prior to the 2007-08 season.

In his three seasons as a player with the Phantoms from 2004-2007, Cote finished fourth in franchise history with 664 penalty minutes in 168 games. He scored eight career goals and 12 assists for the Phantoms.

Following the 2009-10 season with Philadelphia, Cote was invited by the Flyers organization to join the Adirondack Phantoms as an assistant coach and he has thrived in his new role helping the up and coming prospects develop into NHL players.

Event Nights for Players and Coaches
 

Phantoms-PR-Banner
Lehigh Valley, PA | March 13, 2014 – The Lehigh Valley Phantoms hockey team today entered into a partnership with regional youth hockey organization the Lehigh Valley Flames. The announcement was made by Jim and Rob Brooks, co-owners of the American Hockey League (AHL) team.

“We are proud to kick off our support of youth hockey in the Lehigh Valley,” said Rob Brooks. “There is a lot of energy for youth hockey in the community, and we want to continue to grow that by supporting organizations that promote the positive impact hockey can have on children. We are excited that the Flames organization will now be known as the Lehigh Valley Phantoms Youth. The board, the players and the parents represent exactly what Jim and I feel youth hockey should be about.”

The Flames, which are based at the Steel Ice Rink in Bethlehem and play in the Delaware Valley Hockey League, will officially become the Lehigh Valley Phantoms Youth and begin to use the official Lehigh Valley Phantoms Youth team logo with “Youth” incorporated into it. The AHL team’s players and coaches will hold instructional clinics throughout the year for the organization. Additionally, each youth team will be visited by a Phantoms player and have the opportunity to participate in game-day events at PPL Center where the Lehigh Valley Phantoms will play, beginning in the fall of 2014.

“Our entire organization is thrilled about this partnership,” said Sandy Steidel, President of the Flames. “The Lehigh Valley Phantoms’ arrival in the area is going to raise the level of youth hockey regionally. But, more importantly, the Phantoms organization is about more than just improving youth hockey skills – it is about sportsmanship, integrity and helping kids grow into fine young men and women.”
