The Gwinnett Gladiators have agreed to terms with defenseman Phil Youngclaus for
the 2010-2011 season.
Youngclaus split time between the Gladiators and the Dayton Gems of the
International Hockey League last season. He collected 7 assists for the
Gladiators in 31 ECHL games after joining Gwinnett on January 26th. He began
the season with Dayton and collected 20 points (4g, 16a) in 36 IHL games.
The Methuen, MA, native skated in just 11 games with the Gladiators during the
2008-09 season due to injury. Youngclaus returned to the Gladiators for the
2009 Kelly Cup Playoffs where he posted an assist in five post-season games.
In 112 career ECHL games between Gwinnett and Pensacola, Youngclaus has earned
21 points (1g, 21a) and amassed 107 penalty minutes. Prior to turning pro, he
skated with the University of Vermont for four seasons where he collected 2
goals and 9 points in 78 career collegiate games.
