The Ottawa Senators made a couple moves today re-signing defenceman Chris Phillips to a 2 year contract extension and trading for forward Ales Hemsky.

The Edmonton Oilers have traded forward Ales Hemsky to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a 2015 third-round draft pick and a 2014 fifth-rounder.

In 652 NHL games, Hemsky has scored 142 goals and 335 assists, he has also played in 30 playoff games during his career. In 55 games with the Oilers this season, he has scored nine goals and added 17 assists.

Edmonton is believed to be retaining half of Hemsky’s remaining 2013-14 salary to complete the deal.

The Senators have also agreed to a two-year contract extension worth $2.5 million per season with defenceman Chris Phillips. His deal reportedly includes a no-trade clause.

In 1,125 games with the Senators, he has scored 71 goals and 212 assists. The 35-year-old has appeared in 52 games with the Senators this season, scoring one goal and 12 assists.
