Spirit sign forwards Sebastien Gervais, Ian Phillips

Saginaw, MI – Saginaw Spirit General Manager Dave Drinkill announced today (Sept.2) the organization has signed forwards Sebastien Gervais and Ian Phillips to a Standard Player Agreement and Education Package.

“We are thrilled to add Sebastien Gervais and Ian Phillips to our program, said Drinkill. “When I think about Sebastien Gervais, it’s high-end speed, skill, and competitiveness. Sebastien is a later round pick that we feel has a ton of potential. We want to put him around OHL players every day and allow his game to grow in our system. For a third-round pick in the U18 Draft, Ian Phillips displayed tons of character and ability during training camp. His competitiveness, hockey IQ, and his ability to absorb knowledge on the fly are intangibles that we value in our organization.”

Gervais, 16, was a 12th round pick of the Spirit, 224th overall, in the 2021 Under-17 Priority Selection Draft. The 6-foot-0, 165-pound left wing last played for the Windsor Jr Spitfires U15 during the 2019-20 season.

Phillips, 18, was drafted by the Spirit in the third round, 55th overall, in the 2020 U-18 Priority Selection. The Midland, Ontario native scored 36 points (18 goals – 18 assists) in 36 games for the North Central Predators U18 during the 2019-20 season.

Gervais will wear No.15 and Phillips will wear No. 73 for the Spirit this season.
