Senators defenseman Chris Phillips announces retirement

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Ottawa Senators defenseman Chris Phillips is closing out his career with the only NHL team he has ever known.

Drafted first overall by the Senators in 1996, the 38-year-old Phillips announced his retirement Thursday. He had 71 goals and 217 assists in 1,179 career regular-season games, but missed this past season because of back issues.

"Nineteen years of professional hockey takes a toll on a body," Phillips said. "I prided myself on playing through a lot of ailments but because of back problems that required surgery last spring that I could not fully recover from, I've made the decision along with family and doctors to retire from the game of hockey."
