Bruins, Kings Swap Top Scorers

The Boston Bruins acquired center Dimitri Khristich, 28, who scored 19 goals and 37 assists last season, and goaltender Byron Dafoe from the Los Angeles Kings in a four-player trade that involves both teams’ top scorers from last season.

The Kings received center Jozef Stumpel, right wing Sandy Moger and a 1998 fourth-round draft pick. Stumpel had 21 goals and 55 assists last season.

The Ottawa Senators signed defenseman Chris Phillips to a three-year contract, ending more than a year of negotiations with the top pick in the 1996 NHL draft. Phillips, 19, agreed to a pact worth $875,000 a season, the maximum allowed under NHL rules for players drafted in 1996. The pact includes incentive bonuses that could push it over $1 million annually.

Mario Tremblay, former coach of the Montreal Canadiens, will remain with the team as a scout.

Tremblay will join another former coach - Jacques Demers - in scouting professional leagues.
