Teenage blueliner Charlie Phillips has followed his brother Billy to the Invicta Dynamos.
The 17-year-old joins from the London Raiders, where he made his debut in league hockey last season.
He scored against the Mos in the last campaign in Gillingham but will now be skating for Kevin Parrish’s NIHL South Division 1 side in the 2014-15 campaign.
Phillips is Mos’ 15th signing of the summer and Parrish said: “He’s just 17 and has all the raw talent required to make it. A move to the Mos is a fresh start, a chance to put anything else behind him and focus on a game he clearly has an aptitude for.
“He caught my eye with his play last year and if he can continue to build on that natural hockey sense, I don’t see why he can’t go on to become a top player at this level.
“He became a key figure for the London Raiders in 2013-14, despite his youth and now he’ll be hoping to make even more of an on-ice impact as he joins us.”
Defenceman Billy Phillips joined the Mos a fortnight ago after he also left the Raiders.
Speaking of the pair’s departure, Raiders manager Mick Cahill said: “Will we miss Billy Phillips? Damn right we will. He’s a great player and has done great things for us. Charlie also had an outstanding debut year."
