Chris Phillips is a stay at home defenceman.

The 35-year-old Phillips went right down to the wire, but when push came to shove Wednesday he didn’t go anywhere after signing a two-year, $5 million deal contract extension with the Senators.

The deal means Phillips, who suited up for his 1,226th career game with Ottawa against the Calgary Flames Wednesday night, will likely finish his career with the Senators.
