Canadian NHL player, Phillip Danault commenced his junior career in 2005. He played with his hometown club, Victoriaville Tigres, in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
From then onwards, he began his mind-blowing performances in various tournaments and regional games. He was even awarded Guy Carbonneau Trophy of QMJHL in 2010-11 for the best defensive forward.
His commitment to becoming an NHL player got accomplished only when Chicago Blackhawks selected him as 26th overall for the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
From 2011 to 2016, he was frequently traded to Rockford Icehogs, an AHL affiliate, by Blackhawks where he got a chance to enhance his career.
Phillip secured his first NHL goal on 16th July 2016, in a 3-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres from Blackhawks side.
