Gritty Forward Excelled With Sea Dogs

Team: Saint John Sea Dogs
Hometown: Fredericton, New Brunswick

After a 95-point regular season, Zack Phillips added a terrific playoffs to his bulky list of accomplishments.

A strong, defensively conscious player, Phillips is skilled in both ends of the rink with his lack of footspeed standing out as his only real liability.

Playing for the Memorial Cup champion Saint John Sea Dogs likely will boost Phillips’ standing among talent evaluators.

“I think it’s pretty important.  You are the last team the scouts see so it’s all fresh in their mind.”

“I think I showed a little bit of grittiness. I played gritty all year long but I hope I showed that I can play both ways,” he said.
