ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears have agreed to terms with defenseman Adam Phillips for the 2017-18 season. Orlando had previously acquired the rights to Phillips from the Indy Fuel in June.

“We were fortunate to acquire Adam earlier this summer and we’re happy to add him to our roster for the upcoming season,” Solar Bears head coach Drake Berehowsky said. “He sees the ice well and makes a solid first pass out of the defensive zone.”

Phillips, 27, split his third season of professional hockey in 2016-17 with Indy and the Norfolk Admirals, logging 19 points (3g-16a) and 22 penalty minutes in 49 total games.

“I’m very excited to join the Solar Bears. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the coaching staff and organization as a whole, from top to bottom,” Phillips said. “I’m looking forward to working towards bringing a championship to the City of Orlando and the best fans in the league.”

The 6-foot-6, 217-pound rearguard has skated in 168 career ECHL games with Indy, Norfolk, Kalamazoo and Stockton, recording 67 points (21g-46a) and 68 penalty minutes.

Prior to turning pro, the native of Farmington Hills, Mich. played college hockey for the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, where he skated in 124 games for the Minutemen and produced 50 points (23g-27a) and 140 penalty minutes. Phillips also played junior hockey with the United States Hockey League’s Indiana Ice, accumulating 12 points (1g-11a) and 16 penalty minutes in 47 games.

The Orlando Solar Bears are the proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs and AHL’s Toronto Marlies, and play all of their home games at the ARS.com Rink at Amway Center, the 2012 Street and Smith’s Sports Business Journal Sports Facility of the Year.
