Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Merlyn Phillips
Characterized as a hard-working, clever centreman, Bill Philips played for parts of eight seasons with the Soo Greyhounds of the North American Hockey Association from 1919-1925. In his fourth season with the club, he scored a remarkable 39 points in only 12 games.

Philips eventually signed as a free agent with the Montreal Maroons of the NHL in 1926. Taking on Lester Patrick's team from Victoria in the playoffs, Philips was a standout as his Maroons won the Stanley Cup.

He remained with the Maroons until 1932 when he jumped ship to the New York Americans, but he retired just 30 games later.
