The idea of the team came from the owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Howard Baldwin. Baldwin purchased franchises in the Continental Indoor Soccer League and Roller Hockey International. The end result was the creation of the Pittsburgh Stingers and the Pittsburgh Phantoms. Both teams would use the Pittsburgh Civic Arena for home games and the most expensive ticket for adults for both new teams will cost $11, the least expensive was $9. Penguins tickets, by comparison, ranged from $30 to $47. The Phantoms were coached by the Penguins’ second all-time scorer at the time, Rick Kehoe and another former Penguin, Warren Young, who split time behind the bench and as a player. The Phantoms also hoped to gain credibility by using Bryan Trottier, a six-time Stanley Cup winner and a crucial member of the Penguins championship teams. The Phantoms also used former NHL’er Alain Lemieux, the older brother of the Penguins' star forward Mario Lemieux. The Phantoms also tapped into the local market and signed forward Jamie Adams, the only hockey player from local Shaler Area High School to have his number retired, played as a left winger on the team. They also signed Marty McDonough and Andy White from Allderdice High School who played goalie and defense, respectively. Injuries, however, limited both of their roles.

In Pittsburgh? I'm not buying seafood at a grocery store.
