Bruins could be interested in Senators' Phillips: report

The Ottawa Senators are expected to continue contract talks with defenseman Chris Phillips on Friday, according to TSN's Darren Dreger, who said the Boston Bruins are believed to be among the teams interested in trading for Phillips if the Senators decide to move him instead.

Phillips is in the final season of a three-year, $9.25 million contract.

The No. 1 pick in the 1996 NHL Draft, Phillips has played his entire career for Ottawa, 1,123 regular-season and 114 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

In his 16th season, the 35-year-old has one goal and 13 points in 50 games.
