It appears NHL player agent Stacey McAlpine is being sued by another former client.

According to The Ottawa Citizen, Senators defenceman Chris Phillips has filed a $7.5 million lawsuit, claiming bad investments and unauthorized real estate deals allegedly made by McAlpine.

Last month, Minnesota Wild forward Dany Heatley - another former client of McAlpine - filed an $11 million lawsuit alleging similar claims.

None of the accusations mentioned above have been proven in court.

"It's in the courts and I can't talk about that or I will jeopardize the process," Phillips told The Citizen on Thursday. "I'm extremely disappointed that I'm in this situation and have to deal with it."

"Chris is angry and disappointed with the conduct of Stacey McAlpine," Phillips' lawyer Peter Mantas told the Globe and Mail. "He trusted Mr. McAlpine. He will vigorously pursue this litigation against Mr. McAlpine."

McAlpine denies the allegations and is countersuing Phillips for $230,000 in unpaid fees and expenses.
