Brock Philips, originally from Chatham, was drafted by the Guelph Storm in the 2014 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Priority Selection Draft.

Philips was drafted in the 5th round, 100th overall by the Storm.

“I’m speechless,” said Philips shortly after being selected. “I’m proud to be drafted by such a great organization that is so close to home, but I know that the work is just beginning.”

Philips, who left Chatham early in his minor hockey career when his family moved to Fergus, Ontario, played for the Alliance leading Waterloo Wolves.

The hulking 6’4″ defender 4 assists and 76 penalty minutes in 32 regular season games, and is considered by many scouts to be one of the most improved players in the 1998 draft class.

In the playoffs, Philips had a goal and an assist in 10 games en route to the Waterloo Wolves winning the Alliance championship.

Philips also attended the OHL Draft Combine in late March.

Philips was the second Chatham prospect drafted by the Storm in the 2014 OHL Draft, as fellow defenseman Levi Tetrault, who captained the Chatham-Kent Cyclones this season, was selected 73rd overall by Guelph in the 4th round.
