Chris Phillips

Sens Make Phillips A Healthy Scratch

News: Chris Phillips will be a healthy scratch Saturday against the Bruins, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: The move comes as a surprise, as Chris Phillips is generally regarded as one of the better defenders on a weak Senators blue line. He could just be sitting in an effort by coach Dave Cameron to open up a temporary lineup spot for Patrick Wiercioch, who had been a typical scratch for the Senators before missing time with a muscle strain over the past week.

Sens' Phillips Back In Friday

News: Chris Phillips (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Friday against the Panthers, Gord Wilson of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips missed the Sens' previous three games with an unspecified ailment, but the two-day break in the schedule apparently provided enough time for him to return to full health. He'll slot back into a top-four role for the Senators, but with only two points in 16 games, he's not going to offer much upside from a fantasy perspective.

Sens' Phillips Won't Play Saturday

News: Chris Phillips (undisclosed) will not play Saturday against the Blues, Brent Wallace of TSN reports.
Analysis: There's no word on what happened to the veteran blueliner, but he left the ice early during warmups for Saturday's game. Patrick Wiercioch will fill in for Chris Phillips as long as he's forced to watch from the press box.

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phillips (Lower Body) Will Play Sunday

News: Chris Phillips will return to the lineup Sunday against the Maple Leafs, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips left Tuesday's game with the injury, and has missed the two previous games as a result. He took part in practice Friday but didn't play Saturday. Phillips will return after an extra 24 hours of rest to face the Maple Leafs.

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phillips Out For Saturday

News: Chris Phillips (lower body) will not play Saturday against the Jets, Elliotte Friedman of the CBC reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips didn't come out for warmups and will watch Saturday's game from the press box. The longest tenured Senator will try to rest up and get healthy for Sunday's showdown with the rival Maple Leafs.

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phillips Out Saturday

News: Chris Phillips (lower body) isn't expected to play Saturday against the Jets, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips was present at the Senators' morning skate, but after taking part in some initial work on a pairing with Cody Ceci, he consulted with the coaching staff and didn't sound like he was ready to go. Patrick Wiercioch will more than likely take his spot in the lineup Saturday.

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phillips Back At Practice

News: Chris Phillips (lower body) participated in Friday's practice, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips was held out of Thursday's win over the Wild with the injury, but his presence at practice creates some optimism that he won't have to miss further time. He still remains uncertain to suit up for Saturday's game against the Jets, but his status should be determined one way or the other after the team's morning skate that day.

11/6/2014

Chris Phillips, D, OTT

Chris Phillips

Senators' Phillips Out Thursday

News: Chris Phillips (lower body) will not play in Thursday's game against the Wild, TSN's Brent Wallace reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips is apparently still feeling the effects of the injury that knocked him out of Tuesday's game. However, head coach Paul MacLean said Phillips simply "needs another maintenance day," so it does not sound like he is dealing with a serious setback. Consider him questionable for the Senators' next game Saturday.

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phillips Misses Wednesday's Practice

News: Chris Phillips (lower body) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips hasn't been ruled out from playing in the Senators' next game Thursday against the Wild, but his status likely won't be announced until the team completes its morning skate that day. The blueliner exited Tuesday's win over the Red Wings with the injury, but was able to supply four hits and five blocked shots before his departure.

Sens' Phillips Leaves With Lower-Body Injury

News: Chris Phillips left Tuesday's game against the Red Wings with a lower-body injury and will not return.
Analysis: It's not clear at what point Chris Phillips suffered the injury, nor the extent of the damage. The Senators should have a clearer picture of the severity of the injury when the team resumes practicing Wednesday. Phillips' contributions this season have been almost exclusively limited to his own zone, as he's collected only one point and attempted 13 shots in 11 games.

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phillips Providing Leadership

News: Chris Phillips finished the season with a goal and 14 assists in 70 games.
Analysis: Chris Phillips doesn't provide much offensively, but he's a steady, veteran presence on the blue line, and should be much the same in 2014-15 as the Sens try to turn things around after a disappointing season.

3/27/2014

Chris Phillips, D, OTT

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phillips Will Be Available Friday

News: Chris Phillips (upper body) says he'll be available for Friday's game against the Blackhawks, TSN's Brent Wallace reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips was surprisingly scratched Tuesday against the Panthers due to the injury, but it appears he only needed one night out of the lineup to nurse himself back to full health. He'll presumably slot back in on defense Friday for Patrick Wiercioch, who replaced him in Tuesday's lineup.

Sens' Phillips Sits Tuesday With Injury

News: Chris Phillips sat out Tuesday's game against the Panthers with an upper-body injury, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: The blue liner was replaced in the lineup by Patrick Wiercioch. Chris Phillips has only 13 points in 61 games, but his presence will be missed defensively.

3/5/2014

Chris Phillips, D, OTT

Chris Phillips

Sens Extend Phillips

News: Chris Phillips signed a two-year, $5 million extension with the Senators on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of Journal de Montreal reports.
Analysis: The veteran blueliner has played his entire career in Ottawa, and was able to get a deal done despite interest from multiple other teams. Chris Phillips has recorded one goal and 13 assists in 52 games this season.

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phillips Returns To Practice

News: Chris Phillips (hip) was back at practice Wednesday and appears to be fully recovered from his injury, the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: The hip ailment prevented Chris Phillips from playing in the Sens' final seven games before the Olympic break, but he looks to have a clean bill of health heading into the second half. Phillips is in the final season of his three-year, $9.25 million and could be a trade target for a team in the market for blue line help.

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phillips Still Out

News: Chris Phillips (undisclosed) seems unlikely to play before the Olympic break, the Senators' official site reports.
Analysis: With that in mind, coach Paul MacLean noted Thursday that Chris Phillips "is making progress," while adding "we're not going to rule him out for Saturday afternoon just yet, but I think we probably will by the time we get there just to make sure that everything is settled."

Sens' Phillips Skates Monday

News: Chris Phillips (undisclosed) skated on his own Monday morning, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips worked out on his own back in Ottawa while the Sens conducted their own morning skate in Pittsburgh in advance of Monday's game. Phillips has already been ruled out for both Monday's contest and Tuesday's game in St. Louis. A return in either of the Sens' last two games before the Winter Olympic break remains possible.

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phillips Injured

News: Chris Phillips sat out Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets with an undisclosed injury, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: The team described Chris Phillips' injury as a minor issue, so it doesn't sound like he'll be out for too long. Phillips has just one goal and 12 assists on the season, so his absence should only affect the deepest of leagues.

Chris Phillips

Sens' Phllips Will Play Thursday

News: Chris Phillips (face) will play Thursday vs. the Canadiens, Ian Mendes of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips took a puck to the face in Tuesday's game, but it seems to have only caused cosmetic damage. Now that he's been patched up, he appears set to reunite with Eric Gryba on the third pairing, with Patrick Wiercioch and Joe Corvo headed to the press box.

Sens' Phillips Takes Puck To Face

News: Chris Phillips left the game after he was hit in the face with a deflected puck Tuesday against the Wild, and did not return, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: It's not clear yet how serious the injury is, so consider Chris Phillips day-to-day until we hear more. The veteran blueliner has one goal and 12 assists in 44 games this season.

Senators' Phillips Out Monday

News: Chris Phillips (foot) will not play in Monday's game against the Capitals, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips was also held out of Saturday's game with the foot injury. With a few days off to rest it, he will likely be evaluated before Thursday's game against the Jets before deciding his status for that game.

Sens' Phillips Ruled Out Saturday

News: Chris Phillips is dealing with a left foot injury and will not play Saturday.
Analysis: He sustained the injury while blocking a shot in Friday's loss to the Bruins and will not be available for the rematch between the two teams. Patrick Weircioch is expected to enter the lineup in his stead.

Sens' Phillips To Play Saturday

News: Chris Phillips (foot) will play Saturday vs. the Kings, Graeme Nichols of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Chris Phillips left practice after hurting his foot while blocking a shot, but said he was fine afterwards. He didn't develop much swelling overnight and should be operating at full strength Saturday, much to the delight of his fantasy owners.
