Kevin Phillips (born 5 January 1986) is an English professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Guildford Flames of the EPIHL. He has also played for the Great Britain national ice hockey team.

Kevin, a former Great Britain national team member at Jr. and Sr. level, spent the previous pair of seasons at Belfast Giants where he iced 117 games, registering 7 goals and 24 points in addition to an extra 3 games of Continental Cup play where he added 2 more assists. He enters the season just shy of 500 starts between Giants, Braehead Clan, Hull Stingrays and a brief stint with London Racers. He began his senior career in 2002-2003 with Hull Thunder of the now defunct British National League. He remained in Hull for their conversion to Stingrays in 2004-2005, their move to the English Premier League the season after that, and their subsequent transfer to the EIHL in 2006-2007. He joined the English Premier League Slough Jets in 2007-2008 and iced nearly 100 games over a couple of seasons, registering 18 goals and 54 points while helping them to the Playoff title during his opening stint. Kevin made his Giants debut in 2009-2010 before moving on to Braehead for the next 3 seasons ahead of a Belfast return. His Irish residency was a successful one with a Playoff title in 2009-2010 and a League championship in 2013-2014. Internationally, he has a Gold medal from the 2003-2004 under 18 tournament and Under 20 Gold in ’03-’04 and ’05-’06. He made his senior debut on the national stage in 2004-2005 and returned to the big team in 2009-2010, experiencing 10 senior world championship caps along the way.]].
