Chris Phillips (born March 9, 1978) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He has been a member of the National Hockey League's Ottawa Senators for his entire career, which began with the 1997–98 season. He also serves as their alternate captain. He is regarded as a stay-at-home defenceman, and is usually paired with Anton Volchenkov. The Senators drafted him first overall in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. He was raised in Fort McMurray, Alberta.

Playing careerEdit

Phillips began his minor league career in 1995 with the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League. He was selected to play in the Memorial Cup all-star team in 1996-97, and also helped the Raiders win a WHL championship. He also participated in the 1995 Canada Winter Games as the captain of the Alberta team. He was drafted first overall in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft by the Ottawa Senators, and won the 1996–97 Bill Hunter Memorial Trophy as the top defenceman in the WHL.

In the 2004 playoffs, he scored the game-winning goal to tie the series 2–2 in the conference quarter-finals, which the Toronto Maple Leafs eventually won. Phillips spent the 2004–05 lockout in Sweden, playing for Brynäs IF.

After the June 2006 departure of Zdeno Chara, Phillips was named an alternate captain of the Senators for the 2006–07 NHL season. He played his 500th career NHL game against the New York Rangers on Boxing Day 2006. In March 2007, against the Washington Capitals, he tallied his 100th career assist.[1] He reached his career high of 8 goals on February 14, 2007 against the Florida Panthers.

In Game 5 of the 2007 Stanley Cup Finals against the Anaheim Ducks, Phillips scored an own goal, which became the Cup-winning goal in a 6–2 loss. It was credited to Travis Moen. The goal is reminiscent of a similar gaffe by Steve Smith; Phillips compared his experience to Smith's, and said that he understood how Smith felt.[2]

Personal lifeEdit

Phillips and his wife, Erin have three children, a son name Ben and two daughters, Naomi and Zowie.
