Sens recall Hoffman

Sens recall Hoffman



With the re-assignment of Dave Dziurzynski earlier today, the Sens made a corresponding move, calling up 23 year old forward Mike Hoffman.

From the official release:

Hoffman, 23, was one of 27 players who participated in the Senators’ abbreviated training camp this past January. In 41 AHL games with Binghamton this season, the Kitchener, Ont., native has recorded 28 points (13 goals, 15 assists) and 38 penalty minutes. He currently ranks third among active B-Sens in goals and is tied for third in overall team scoring.

Originally selected by Ottawa in the fifth-round (130th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Hoffman has skated in one NHL contest for the Senators and was held scoreless in a 2-1 setback at Carolina on Dec. 23, 2011.

Hoffman brings an offensive skillset that should slide in nicely to the team's current rotation. Obviously by sending Dziurzynski to Bingo, the Sens lose a physical two-way presence who has been effective against opposing top lines. However, in gaining Hoffman they add an offensive threat with plenty of speed and a great shot.

His production this season has been curbed by a collarbone injury he sustained shortly after departing Ottawa but his overall ability should suit the team's pressure-oriented system well. Provided the team continues to generate well in the offensive zone he should have plenty of chances to notch his first NHL points.
