Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Phil Von Stefenelli
After his first of four seasons with Boston University defenseman Phil Von Stefenelli was drafted by his hometown Vancouver Canucks. Following his collegiate career Von Stefenelli turned pro with the Canucks farm club in Milwaukee and remained a minor league player until his contract expired.

In 1994 he signed a free agent contract with the Boston Bruins and it was with them that he got his first chance to play in the NHL, but not before logging another year in the minors.

In 1995-96 Von Stefenelli split his time between the American Hockey League's Providence Bruins and the big club in Boston. In 37 games with the Boston Bruins Von Stefenelli registered four assists and a +2 plus/minus rating.

The next year he was on the move again signing a free agent deal with the Ottawa Senators, but they only found room for Von Stefenelli to play six games for them. Following his only season in the Ottawa organization he elected to continue his career in Europe.

After a year with the Frankfurt Lions of the German League he signed a deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning but did not make the team and remained in Germany, though now he had moved on to the Krefeld Penguins, who he stayed with for the next four seasons.
