Phillips Commits to Wolves
The Sudbury Wolves are pleased to announce that 17-year-old defenceman, Isaak Phillips has committed to the hockey club. The towering defenceman played last season with the Stouffville Spirit of the OJHL.
“Isaak has grown to up to 6’3 over the last year,” said Rob Papineau, VP Hockey Operations & General Manager. “He combines size with athleticism and excellent skating ability. He has a big shot and plays a 200-foot game.”
“It has been a goal of mine to sign with the Wolves since I was drafted and meeting this is a dream come true,” said Isaak. “I am so excited to start to prove that I belong at this level and I can’t thank my parents and coaches from Stouffville enough for believing in me.”
The Barrie native was selected by the Wolves in the 4th Round of the 2017 OHL Priority Selection.
Isaak is one of three players who committed to the team following Thursday’s Blue & White game.
The Wolves will now hit the ice against the Ottawa 67’s on home ice Friday night, August 31st during Ribfest. For more information on tomorrow’s exhibition game, visit: http://sudburywolves.com/article/wolves-host-67s-friday-in-pre-season-action
