Phantoms site training camp coverage and radio station

The Phantoms web page has got some coverage of Flyers Training Camp HERE.

Also, WNYQ will broadcast Phantoms games again this season. Their "Listen Live" link is now active again. I'm pretty glad about that, as I really grew to like that station and was disappointed when the cybercast went offline during the summer. HERE is the link to listen to the station.

Here is the roster, sorted by jersey number. Sorry if the formatting gets goofed up... it's a challenge to get the spacing to behave when copying and pasting from a spreadsheet. (I'm trying to look up the right technique even as I type, but I haven't found it yet.)
