Two days after being included among the “Players to Watch” for the 2013 NHL Draft, Sean Romeo made a statement to all the scouts in attendance at IBP Ice Arena – and more importantly to, his coaches and teammates on the bench.
The Cary, N.C., goaltender was stellar between the pipes, turning away 31 shots to back-stop the Youngstown Phantoms to a 3-2 win over the Dubuque Fighting Saints in their second game of the USHL Fall Classic.
The Phantoms got goals from Austin Cangelosi, Luke Stork, and JT Stenglein, who scored for the second straight night.
“It was the best hockey game we’ve been a part of so far,” head coach Anthony Noreen said. “The physicality and pace of the game was great and Sean was very good tonight. He made some big saves when we needed him.”
The Phantoms will close out things at the Fall Classic Saturday morning against the Green Bay Gamblers. The puck drops at 11 a.m. EST.
