    Looks like a Glendening comparable?

    79 on TSN. Apparently has a very high ceiling and rose in the rankings fast. I’m good with this pick, though would have preferred a winger.

    He is small at 5'9 146 lbs. We had another pick last years draft that was on the very small side.

    Seems way more offensive minded than Glendening.

    No small center/winger. The only thing in common is they're both right handed shots.

    He played RW for SF.

    Also going to Boston University like Mastrosimone.

    Could be a dynamic duo.

    But, yeah, for real. He's the son from Zadina's billet family in Halifax. Kind of a neat detail. I guess that's a Wings family now.

    Ethan Phillips was Zadina’s billet family in Halifax. Was at draft with him last year in Dallas.

    Nice to get a righty forward. Finally.

    96.) Ethan Phillips, Centre, Sioux Falls Stampede, USHL, 5’9″ 150 lbs

    Phillips is a smaller skater who makes up for that lack of size with excellent skating ability. He is a real threat on the rush, as once he gets a step on a defender he can blow by them and cut to the net. Add in excellent agility and Phillips can manoeuver through traffic both with and without the puck. He does not let his size get in the way of playing a gritty game, as he fights hard in the corners and in front of the net. With the puck on his stick, Phillips plays the role of playmaker, making passes through tight seams and setting up teammates for scoring chances. His shot is decent but could improve with more muscle on his frame.

    Not 100% sure of this. He was taken by the Mooseheads in this years draft. Thought I seen an interview somewhere he was excited to come to camp. Not sure though

    If he helps Zadina develop I’m all for it.

    Zadina should be in the NHL for 3-4 years before this kid is sniffing professional hockey

    Wait... wasn't the lady that was shocked at the Kotkaniemi pick Zadina's billet parent? Is she Phillips' mom?

    from the Freep
    In addition to learning about nutrition and working out this week, it’s a chance to catch up with Zadina, who billeted with Phillips’ family in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It has been about a year since the two friends last met, and so minutes after the Wings drafted Phillips, Zadina was on the phone to executive assistant Kim Brodie.

    That was debunked.

    BU is looking pretty stacked next year. I’m guessing Trevor Zegras and Jake Wise will slot as their top 2 centers. Curious to see if Phillips slots in as the 3rd line center or if he will get to play on the wing with 1 of those 2 guys.
