2009-10: Drafted by Sarnia in the fourth round of the 2009 OHL Priority Draft, Jamie Phillips instead played junior A hockey with Welland and Brantford. In six OJHL games with Welland he was 0-2 with a 4.76 goals against and .886 save percentage. He played in three games for Brantford  and was 2-0 with a 3.00 goals against and .873 save percentage.

2010-11: Phillips was the winningest goalie in the junior A Central Canada Hockey League as the Pembroke Lumber Kings won the regular season and playoff titles. In 33 regular season games he was 25-7 with six shutouts and had a 2.13 goals against and .913 save percentage. Mid-season acquisition Francis Dupuis, a 20-year-old, handled the bulk of the goaltending duties in the post-season. In two CCHL playoff games, Phillips was 2-0 with one shutout and had a 1.50 goals against and .919 save percentage. Phillips appeared in two games during the Fred Page Cup en route to the RBC Cup and stopped 20 of 26 shots for a 6.00 goals against. Dupuis started all six games at the RBC Cup as the Lumber Kings captured the national championship.

2011-12: Phillips began the season in the BCHL with the Powell River Kings before returning to Ontario in a mid-season trade. He finished the season with the OJHL’s Toronto Junior Canadians. In December, prior to the trade, Phillips committed to attending Michigan Tech in 2012-13. In 26 games with the River Kings, he was 16-6-1 with 5 shutouts, a 2.01 goals against average, and  .921 save percentage. In 11 games with the Junior Canadians, he was 4-6 with 2 shutouts and had a 3.11 goals against and .917 save percentage. He started all ten playoff games for Toronto and was 5-5 with a 2.99 goals against and .932 save percentage. Ranked 26th amongst North American goaltenders in Central Scouting’s final rankings prior to the 2012 NHL Draft, Phillips was selected by Winnipeg in the seventh round (190th overall).

2012-13: Phillips appeared in nine games for Michigan Tech as a freshman. He made one start in the first three months of the season – a 2-1 loss to Northern Michigan on December 4th – but showed glimpses of his potential in three March starts for the Huskies. Phillips stopped 36 of 37 shots in a 5-1 win over first-place St. Cloud State on March 2nd and stopped all 22 shots in a shutout win over Colorado College six days later. He finished the year 2-2 with a 2.40 goals against and .907 save percentage. Michigan Tech was 12th in the WCHA and lost to North Dakota in a three game first round series in the WCHA tournament. Phillips started the first game of the series; allowing 5 goals on 24 shots in a 5-3 loss.

2013-14: Phillips appeared in 13 games for Michigan Tech as a backup to  fellow sophomore Pheonix Copley (WSH). He was 4-6-1 with a 2.82 goals against and .892 save percentage. Michigan Tech finished fifth in the first year of the re-aligned WCHA; falling to Bowling Green in two games in a best-of-three conference quarterfinal series. Copley started both playoff games. 

Talent Analysis

A late round sleeper pick in 2012 based largely on his size and potential, Phillips saw limited action in his first two college seasons before emerging as the Michigan Tech starter this year. He has started to put all the elements together and is a key factor in the Huskies' early season success in 2014-15.


Phillips has emerged as the starter for Michigan Tech in his junior season; starting every game as the Huskies opened the 2014-15 season with 10 straight wins. With several goaltenders ahead of him on the Jets' depth chart, Phillips' potential to earn a contract with the Jets will be a challenge. His play this season suggests there might be a pro hockey future.
