Observations

The Calgary Flames have signed the USPORTS Men’s Hockey Player of the Year in Luke Philp. The Canmore, AB native just finished his third season for the U of Alberta; leading the league in points for the second consecutive year. He began the year missing four games but still managed to put up electric point totals of 45 points in 24 games. These included 17 PPP, 3 SHP, and 25 at 5-on-5 so it’s evident that he is well rounded and dangerous in multiple situations. The former Kootenay Ice and Red Deer Rebel from the WHL had created quite the buzz during his draft year in 2014. He played alongside then top prospect Sam Reinhart and there was concerns about size and potential benefit from quality of line mates. He’s put those questions to rest as his creative and consistent scoring put him on the radar as a Free Agent.

He has always been a pass-first forward but had quite the breakout campaign in 2018-19; leading the team in goals (21) by a considerable margin, even with a former WHL 50-goal scorer on the roster in Cole Sanford. He’s a smart player and can adapt to multiple positions which should allow for fluid development down the line. His creativity with and without the puck combined with his competitive spirit make him as worthy of an ELC as top college free agents. He has been listed as a centre by the U of A each of the past three season but it remains to be seen if he switches to the wing when he joins Stockton Heat in the fall.

As a fantasy prospect, there are many questions as to how high he can slot in the lineup and how quickly he can adapt to a tighter-checked, tighter-structured game at the pro level. He is a bit of a project still and has some prominent draft picks to leapfrog if NHL games are in his future. Watch with curiosity. – Joel Henderson
