Club History - 1908

The Senators had difficulty in signing their players. But after negotiations all agreed to terms, including Tom Phillips who was asking the stupendous salary of $1,800 for his services. Harry Smith and Hamby Shore left the Senators for the west and Fred Taylor played his first and last game at centre for Ottawa, showing a wide and sweeping stride.

The Senators and the Wanderers were tied for first place with their big game coming up in Montreal on February 29th. Just before the game, J. P. Dickson resigned as manager in a dispute over what railroad the team would travel on to Montreal. It was the first game of the Ottawa schedule in which Marty Walsh had failed to score. He took it out on the Montreal team the following week when he scored seven goals in a 14-6 Ottawa win.


 

Thomas Neil (Tom) Phillips


Those who witnessed the game of hockey at the turn of the century agreed that Tom Phillips was perhaps the greatest hockey player they had ever seen. Phillips played right wing for Ottawa in 1907-08, having been converted to the position because captain Alf Smith refused to relinquish Phillips' customary spot on the left side. As a rightwinger, he scored 26 goals in 10 games. He died in Toronto on November 30, 1923.
