Phantoms forward Tony Voce was dismissed from the club this week by general manager Paul Holmgren after instigating a fight with coach Kjell Samuelsson following an argument at practice.
"They had a disagreement on the ice over how the practice was going," Holmgren said yesterday. "Most of it was on the ice. Sammy tried to say, 'Hold on and I'll talk to you in my office' and it never got to that point."
Holmgren met with the 26-year-old left wing to discuss the matter and then sent him home. A native of the Far Northeast and a graduate of Archbishop Ryan High, Voce has not been reassigned.
