When Anthony Noreen was named the head coach of the Youngstown Phantoms in August 2011, the first person he called was Austin Cangelosi.
“Before I called my parents, before I called anybody else, I called him,” Noreen said. “I wanted to make sure we were going to get him to Youngstown because I knew he would be a program changer, and that’s exactly what he’s been for us.”
Back then, Cangelosi was a rising junior at Northfield Mount Hermon School in Gill, Mass. The Phantoms had drafted him the year before because they were impressed with his high-end speed and competitive nature, even though those attributes came in a pint-sized package.
Youngstown was going into its third season in the United States Hockey League, having spent the previous two mired in the basement of the Eastern Conference.
In Cangelosi’s first season last year, the Phantoms made it to the Clark Cup playoffs for the first time. And there, in the first round against USHL powerhouse Cedar Rapids, the rookie dynamo made headlines.

Youth hockey: Junior Everblades Midgets win U16A state title
by Greg Smith posted 03/02/2013
The Junior Everblades Midget U16 team celebrates after winning the Statewide Amateur Hockey of Florida's U16A state championship on Feb. 24, 2013. The Junior Everblades defeated the Junior Panthers, 5-2, in the championship game. The Junior Everblades are: Liam McCune (on ice); 1st row, from left, Jorden Erickson, Jake Goguen, Kevin Weinkauff; 2nd row, from left, Nick Wichmanowski (Head Coach), Evan Maxey, Jalen Erickson, Anthony Eichhorn, Jake Agin, Billy Owen, Jonathan Grodzki, Colton Howard, Charlie Mondor, Andrew Elgin, Bob Radunz (Assistant Coach); back row, from left, AJ Radunz, Shea Mitruska, Kellen Crowther.
The wake-up call for the Junior Everblades Midget U16A hockey team didn’t come from a hotel worker at the front desk.
Instead, it came in the form of a loss to start the Statewide Amateur Hockey of Florida (SAHOF) state tournament.
After suffering a 2-1 loss in a shootout against the Coral Springs-based Junior Panthers in that opening game, the Jr. Everblades didn’t dwell on the setback. Instead, they responded with an abundance of determination for the remainder of the tournament as they went on to capture the U16 state championship two days later with a 5-2 win in a rematch against the Jr. Panthers in Pembroke Pines.
Congratulations to The Jr Everblades Midget U16 team on winning the SAHOF Midget U16 A State Championship!
The Midget U16 A team started the State Tournament with a 2-1 loss (SO) to the Jr Panthers. The Blades bounced back beating the Thunder 6-0 and then beat the Golden Wolves 6-1 in the 3rd game. A shut out win (4-0) against the Jr Knights earned the Midget U16 team a Championship game berth against the Jr Panthers. The Blades took destiny into their own hands and soundly won the game 5-2. Congratulations on the end of a great season!

Hard-working Jr. Everblades AA Pee Wees win holiday tournament
The Junior Everblades AA Pee Wees mob goalie Christian Tracy after defeating the Columbia (S.C.) Cyclones in the championship game of the 13th annual Florida International Holiday Invitational on Dec. 28, 2012 at Germain Arena in Estero.
ESTERO — Even when the Junior Everblades AA Pee Wees trailed by two goals early in a semifinal, head coach Karl Masnjak knew his players wouldn’t quit.
“The good thing about our team is that they don’t ever give up, no matter if it’s 1-0, 4-0, 5-0; they’re going to continue to play and give everything they’ve got until the final buzzer,” Masnjak said. “As coaches, that’s all we want. As long as you give everything you’ve got and work hard, we’ll be happy with our outcome.”
The Jr. Everblades were thrilled not only with the outcome of the semifinal, which they rallied to win, but also of their entire tournament in the 13th annual Florida International Holiday Invitational that was held Dec. 26-31 at Germain Arena in Estero.
