Tulsa receives the rights to Adam Phillips in exchange for forward Alexandre Ranger.

TULSA, OK – The Tulsa Oilers, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s St. Louis Blues, and Head Coach Rob Murray announced Tuesday a trade with the Orlando Solar Bears. Tulsa acquired the rights to defenseman Adam Phillips from Orlando in exchange for the rights to forward Alexandre Ranger.

Phillips, 28, appeared in 52 regular season games and eight playoff games for the Solar Bears in 2017-18 and is entering his fifth ECHL season. The Farmington Hills, Mich. native totaled 8 points (2g, 6a) and added one assist in the playoffs last season. Prior to his stint in Orlando, Phillips spent time with Norfolk, Indy, Kalamazoo and Stockton earlier in his ECHL career, totaling 75 points (23g, 52a) in 220 career games. The 6’6, 217 lbs. defenseman previously played four seasons at the University of Massachusetts (Amherst), where he compiled 50 points (23g, 27a) in 124 games from 2010-14.

Ranger, 22, spent parts of two seasons in Tulsa, and posted 23 points (7g, 16a) in 47 games in 2017-18. The LaSalle, QC native skated in 7 games for the Oilers in 2016-17 after his rights were acquired in a midseason trade with the Norfolk Admirals.

The Oilers host the Idaho Steelheads to open the regular season on Saturday, October 13 at 7:05pm at the BOK Center. The two teams will complete Opening Weekend in Tulsa at 4:05pm Sunday, October 14, followed by a postgame skate for the fans with the Oilers players.
