Not many undrafted players make it to the show especially these days. Happens on occasion but its rare. With scouting being much more advanced than say 10 years ago, the team has to be really bad and with a poor scouting staff or theres a huge hole in the prospect pipeline which was the case with Philips. Good enough for the ECHL and maybe the AHL but wouldnt challenge for a roster spot on the Hawks.

Hope hes doing well in the EIHL and hope the league develops more players to challenge NA and Euro prospects.
Yeah, he's playing some solid D over here...

Just wanted to see what was up with him, thanks
