It was announced today by Rockford IceHogs team management that defenseman David Phillips has been signed to a one year AHL contract with the club. http://icehogs.com/news/index.html?article_id=1583 It was first reported here that Phillips a Belfast Giant, would be attending the Chicago Blackhawks prospect camp earlier this month. Obviously the young Englishman impressed for he will be around to carry the flag for British hockey program in Rockford for the next season.
Meanwhile back in Belfast it was announced last week that David's older brother, Kevin Phillips, would be taking his own place on the Belfast Giants blueline. Obviously Giants ownership sees what they like in the Phillips boys.http://www.belfastgiants.com/archives/one-in-one-out-kevin-phillips-replaces-brother-davy/
