Sea Dogs Sign Centre Zack Phillips
SAINT JOHN, NB --- Saint John Sea Dogs Director of Hockey Operations Mike Kelly announced today that Fredericton, NB native Zack Phillips has signed with the team. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"Zack is a wonderful addition to our hockey club and we're thrilled that he's signed with us," says Kelly. "He's a highly-skilled offensive player who definitely has the potential to be an elite major junior forward. We're really looking forward to having him in a Sea Dogs uniform next season."
Phillips, 16, was acquired in a trade with the Lewiston MAINEiacs this past weekend in a deal which involved multiple draft picks. Originally selected by Lewiston in the second round (34th overall) of the 2008 QMJHL Entry Draft, the 6'0", 159 lb. centre skated with the Lawrence Academy Spartans (New England Prep School League) last season, registering 19G-29A-48P in 30 games.
