Playing CareerEdit

Phillip played his amateur hockey with the Villanova Knights in the Ontario Junior Hockey League. He committed to play collegiate hockey with the University of Michigan of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association.

After his freshman season with the Wolverines, he was selected by the Carolina Hurricanes as a second round selection in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

In his sophomore season in 2012–13, Phillip set a personal best 28 points in 40 games with Michigan. In his junior season, he ranked second amongst Wolverines in goals with 13 in 35 games.

Having played 115 games with the Wolverines, Phillip opted to forgo his final year of eligibility signing a three-year entry-level contract with the Carolina Hurricanes on March 26, 2014.

Phillip was signed to an amateur try-out contract with Hurricanes AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers and made his professional debut, finishing with three games to conclude the 2013–14 regular season.

After attending the Hurricanes 2015 training camp, Phillip was re-assigned to begin the 2015–16 season with the Checkers. On December 4, 2015, he received his first NHL recall by Carolina and the following day he made his NHL debut in a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens.
