Senators Shuffle the Deck: Hoffman Up, Boro and Grant Down

Shortly after being named as Binghamton’s new captain, forward Mike Hoffman has been recalled by the Ottawa Senators and the man who Hoffman replaced, Mark Borowiecki, has subsequently been demoted. Although the Senators appeared completely content to carry eight defencemen for a stretch, now that Borowiecki has been demoted, the Senators have also opted not to carry two extra...

Struggling Sens recall AHL sniper Hoffman

With just two wins in their last eight games, the Ottawa Senators shook things up on Monday by recalling Mike Hoffman — the AHL’s second-leading scorer — from Binghamton. In related moves, Ottawa sent defenseman Mark Borowiecki and forward Derek Grant to the B-Sens.

Travis Yost: In the Least Surprising Move Ever ...

The Ottawa Senators, in what can only be described as a predictable move and another slight to the recently-cut Mika Zibanejad, have called up center Derek Grant from AHL Binghamton.

Can Binghamton Keep It Up?

Brandishing a record of 17-7-1-2, the Binghamton Senators currently reside in second place in the AHL’s East Division. Given the abundance of youth on the roster, a collective group that the organization likes to refer to as one of the youngest teams in the league, their place in the standings through the first third of the season may be somewhat surprising. Not that it has...
