A pair of Cents are heading to Youngstown to try to make the USHL.

Both Zach Metsa and Michael Regush confirmed today that they will try out for the Youngstown Phantoms. Regush was drafted in the 3rd round, 41st overall before fellow teammate Metsa was drafted in the 4th round 57th overall by the same team in the USHL draft earlier this week.

Regush will find it hard to leave Merritt and the fans behind.

"It's really hard to let go of what I had in Merritt, so I don't know if that's going to be the case or not. But the communities great and the fans are great so it's hard to make that decision right now. So we'll just see how it plays out, and kind of go with the gut feeling"

While Metsa wants to see what Youngstown has to offer before making a decision.

"I mean I'll go down to the Youngstown Camp. I'll talk to the coaches, just check out the organization. See what they're all about, see if I like it and then after that I'll pretty much know what I will be doing next year."

Both players will await the results of Phantoms training camp before making their decision.
