Philip Holm (born 8 December 1991) is a Swedish professional ice hockey defenseman currently playing for Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Playing career[edit]

Holm began playing hockey in Huddinge IK before moving to Djurgårdens IF. He moved to Nacka HK for the 2008–09 season where he played in their under-18 and under-20 teams. Holm also made an appearance in the club's senior team in the Swedish third level league Division 1. He received more games with Nacka's senior team during the following season, while still playing in the under-20 team. Holm returned to Djurgården and their under-20 team for the 2010–11 season.

Holm signed a two-year contract with Djurgården in February 2011.[1] He was named as an extra player in the league game against Skellefteå AIK on 3 March 2011, but did not get any time on the ice.[2][3] He played seven games, scoring one goal, with Djurgården in the 2011 edition of the pre-season tournament European Trophy.[3] Holm received his first time on the ice in an Elitserien game in the league premier against HV71 on 15 September 2011.[4] Holm scored his first Elitserien goal in the away game against Skellefteå AIK on 4 October.[5]

After six seasons within the Djurgården organization, Holm left as a free agent in signing a two-year contract with fellow SHL competitors, the Växjö Lakers on 20 April 2016.[6]

Holm played one season with the Lakers before he implemented his NHL out clause in agreeing to a one-year, entry-level contract with the Vancouver Canucks on 26 May 2017.[7]

In the 2017–18 season, Holm was assigned to begin the year with AHL affiliate, the Utica Comets. On February 13, 2018, Holm was recalled by the Canucks and made his NHL debut, appearing in a solitary game before returning to the Comets. On February 26, 2018, the Canucks dealt Holm at the NHL trade deadline to the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for Brendan Leipsic.[8] He was immediately assigned by the Golden Knight to affiliate, the Chicago Wolves of the AHL for the remainder of the season.

As a restricted free agent from the Golden Knights, Holm opted to leave North America after one season in agreeing to a one-year contract with Russian outfit, Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod of the KHL on July 17, 2018.[9]
