Boumedienne tenders with Youngstown Phantoms

November 25, 2022

16U defenseman Sascha Boumedienne has signed a tender with the Youngstown Phantoms (USHL) for the 2023-24 season. 

A highly dynamic, smooth-skating defenseman, Boumedienne currently leads the 16U team in scoring as an underage player. Through 28 games this season, he has tallied 7 goals and 18 assists for 25 points. A native of Stockholm, Sweden, Boumedienne will soon travel back home to skate with the U16 Swedish National Team.

By signing Boumedienne to a tender, the Phantoms will be giving up their 2023 first-round Phase I draft choice to secure his rights for next season. The current Phantoms roster also includes program alumnus and Providence College commit, Braiden Clark.

The United States Hockey League (USHL) is the top Tier I junior hockey league sanctioned by USA Hockey. The league consists of 16 active teams and consists of players between 16 and 21 years of age. The USHL is strictly amateur, allowing players to compete in NCAA college hockey afterwards.
