Philip Joseph Stock (born May 26, 1975) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player. Since retiring as a player he has become a regular member of the Hockey Night in Canada broadcast team.

Playing career[edit]

Stock played two years with the Victoriaville Tigres of QMJHL, where he was briefly a junior teammate of NHL bust Alexandre Daigle. Upon graduating junior, Stock entered St. Francis Xavier University in 1996.

He was not drafted by an NHL team and signed as a free agent with the New York Rangers in 1997. He spent the next three seasons playing for both the Rangers and their AHL farm team, the Hartford Wolf Pack. Wolf Pack fans in Hartford remember him as scoring the team's first ever goal on home ice at the Hartford Civic Center in 1997. Prior to 2000–01, Stock signed a free agent contract with the Montreal Canadiens. He played 20 games that year with the Canadiens before being traded to the Philadelphia Flyers for Gino Odjick. After a brief return to New York in the following offseason, Stock was claimed by the Boston Bruins in the annual waiver draft.

After two full seasons in Boston, Stock was briefly sent to their Providence farm team before being loaned to the Philadelphia Phantoms of the AHL. Stock totaled five goals, 26 points and 523 penalty minutes in 235 NHL games before being forced to retire due to an eye injury sustained during an AHL game between Springfield and Philadelphia. Stock was being loaned to the Philadelphia Phantoms at the time.
