GMB Panthers head coach Corey Neilson was able to use some home-town connections to beat off the opposition for the signature of latest recruit Zack Phillips.

The NHL first round draft pick had offers from across the UK and from other teams in Europe but has opted to sign for the Panthers.

Speaking on Panthers Radio with Xynomix, Neilson revealed that Phillips comes from his own home-town and that he knows Zack’s father very well.

“Zack’s an impact player and we’re very pleased to land him for the Panthers, he’s coming from a very fast league in Sweden, we’ve made no secret of wanting to sign young and hungry players and that sums him up.”
