Zack Phillips (born October 28, 1992) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre currently playing for Swedish club, Tingsryds AIF in the HockeyAllsvenskan.

Playing career[edit]

Phillips played his junior hockey for the Saint John Sea Dogs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He was selected 28th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Minnesota Wild.

On December 19, 2011, the Minnesota Wild signed Phillips to a three-year entry level contract.[1]

In the 2014–15 season, on March 2, 2015, the Wild traded Phillips, while with AHL affiliate the Iowa Wild, to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Jared Knight. He was assigned to Boston's AHL affiliate the Providence Bruins.[2]

In the following 2015–16 season, Phillips was unable to keep his initial scoring pace with the Providence Bruins and was assigned to ECHL affiliate, the Atlanta Gladiators.[3] After 5 games with the Gladiators, Phillips was traded by the Bruins to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for future considerations on March 4, 2016.[4]

At the conclusion of his NHL contract, Phillips chose to continue his professional career in Sweden, agreeing to a one-year deal Tingsryds AIF of the Allsvenskan on June 1, 2016.[5]
