Zack Phillips returns to Elite League and joins Fife

Fife Flyers have signed 29-year-old Zack Phillips as he returns to the Elite Ice Hockey League for season 2022/23.

Flyers fans will be familiar with Phillips after his spell in the UK with the Nottingham Panthers in season 2017/18, in that year he scored 15 goals and notched up 31 assists.

At 29-years-old Phillips has a vast array of experience, having been a first draft pick for the Minnesota Wild in 2011. He then iced in the AHL with Houtson Aeros, before moving to the Iowa Wild and then the Providence Bruins.
During his AHL career Phillips played 260 times and scored 100 points.

After a brief spell in the ECHL, Phillips then made the trip to Europe in 2016 to join Tingsryds AIF in the second-tier of Swedish hockey. He has also spent time in Slovakia, Hungary, Poland and Germany.

Commenting on his return to the EIHL, Phillips said:

"As far as signing I had some offers from different places around Europe, but I really wanted to get back to the UK and I am really happy that things worked out with Fife.

"I have talked to old teammates of mine who played in Fife and it came highly recommended so I'm excited to get there and see for myself.

"My goals for the year are to try to create offense like I have been able to for most of my career to help the team win as many games as possible."

Fife Flyers Associate Coach Jeff Hutchins added:

"Zack is an experienced player that has played at the highest level. He has produced offense throughout his career and we expect him to come here and do the same.

"He knows the league and what it takes to be successful and we are happy that he is joining us for the coming season."
