It appears that a reunion may be in the works for a former Oilers prospect who decided to retire from the game at a very young age due to personal reasons. According to Bob Stauffer, he feels that Noah Philp may be ready to re-enter hockey and rejoin the Oilers organization.

The now 25-year-old former centre was an undrafted prospect who signed with the Oilers and played for the Bakersfield condors during the 2021-2022 season. The following season he played 70 games with Condors an amassing 19 goals with 18 assists for 37 points and had 61 penalty minutes.

After being offered a two-year extension by general manager Ken Holland, Philp made it a tough and abrupt decision to retire from the game of hockey and concentrate more on other aspects of his life.

Having played for several teams including the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League and standing at six foot three 198 lbs he would certainly be a great re edition to the Oilers organization.

As Stauffer explained, it will be a story that will need to be watched over the coming year.
