Coach Dave Cameron benched Hoffman for poor performance during Saturday's 3-2 win over Toronto, Chris Stevenson of TSN 1200 reports.
Hoffman didn't record any points in just 10:45 of ice time, second-lowest on the team. The winger sat out the third period, sealing his third straight without notching a tally. In fact, the 26-year-old has made an impact in the box score in just two contests out of his last 10, with Saturday the tipping point for Cameron. The Sens are a long shot to make the playoffs, and it remains to be seen whether Hoffman will be in the doghouse moving forward.
