Phantoms have announced the addition of big defenseman
Steven Delisle who joins the team on an AHL contract.
Steven Delisle is a 6-6, 210
pound right-handed shooter from Levis, Quebec.
The 23-year-old has played in 10 career games
in the AHL and 99 games in the ECHL in his two
previous professional seasons.
Last year, he appeared in four games with the
Connecticut Whale registering two assists and
six penalty minutes. He spent most of the campaign
with their ECHL affiliate in Greenville, SC where
he played in 61 games scoring four goals and 16
assists for 20 points with 85 penalty minutes.
In 2011-12, he played in the AHL with the Springfield

Delisle has been part of two major trades between
the Blue Jackets and Rangers organizations.
On July 23, 2012, Steven Delisle was traded by
Columbus to the New York Rangers along with Rick
Nash in exchange for Brandon Dubinski, Artem Anisimov
and Tim Erixon.
On April 3, 2013, Delisle was returned to Columbus
along with Marian Gaborik and Blake Parlett in
exchange for Derick Brassard, John Moore, Derek
Dorsett and a draft-selection. Delisle was allowed
to remain with the New York Rangers' affiliate
in Greenville for the remainder of the season
while he was Columbus property.
Delisle was a fourth-round selection (#107 overall)
of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2008 NHL Entry
Draft from the Gatineau Olympiques of the Quebec
Major Junior Hockey League. With Gatineau and
later with Rouyn-Noranda Huskies for four seasons
from 2006-2010, Deslisle played a total of 253
