Filippi is a 22 year-old Czech-born centreman who played for Bili Tygri Liberec of the Extraliga and has now signed a contract with the KHL’s Metallurg Magnitogorsk.

Filippi had a standout season with Bili Tygri Liberec, as he put up 40 points (16 goals and 24 assists) in 52 games played and led his team in points, goals and assists. He has tremendous playmaking ability and is a true finisher. His skating is good but he is lacks skill in small spaces. Filippi played for the Czech Republic at the 2011-2012 World Junior Championship where he recorded four goals and no assists in four games played.

He would automatically plug in as a top-six forward with the Marlies if he were to play next season.
