Steven Phillips, has recently secured a commitment with St. Norbert Green Knights. St. Norbert College is a private Catholic liberal arts college in De Pere, Wisconsin, which currently enrolls about 2,160 students. Throughout the Green Knights history they have had an abundance of success. St Norbert is amongst the most successful NCAA Division III colleges, having appeared in 15 NCAA Division III Tournaments since 1997, highlighted by nine Frozen Four appearances – and winning the national championship in 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2014 while placing as national runner-up in 2004, 2006 and 2010.
The Knights where consistently nationally ranked in the top ten of NCAA Division III hockey all season. The 2014-2015 team had a 20-6-2 record and made it to the NCHA Harris Cup final before succumbing to Adrian College.
Phillips, 20, a native of Green Bay, Wisconsin, was a key leader who provided an abundance of offense and physicality last year for the Natives. The skilled forward was second in club scoring with 22 goals in 58 games and was one of two import players to break the 20 goal mark in our league.
Steven reflected upon his time in Neepawa stating that it was a great place to play and develop, “I would like to thank all of the staff and teammates of the Natives’ organization”. He shared his enthusiasm in his recent signing stating, “I chose St. Norbert because it is close to home and they have a long tradition of winning”. “I am excited to be a part of their club next season”. Phillips plans on majoring in Business and working hard to contribute to the success of the Green Knights next season.
The Natives organization would like to wish Steven and St. Norbert Green Knights success next season. The club feels that Phillip’s character and offensive skill will contribute to the success of the Green Knights for the years to come.
