Hoffman scored a goal on a game-high nine shots and had two PIM in Friday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Sabres. Hoffman's goal came with just 11 seconds remaining in regulation and sent the game into overtime. He took a cross-ice pass from Evgenii Dadonov at the right faceoff dot and calmly unloaded a rocket of a wrist shot that beat Buffalo goalie Linus Ullmark cleanly. Hoffman has now reached the scoresheet in all four games this season, totaling five goals and two assists so far. He had career highs of 36 goals and 70 points in 2018-19, his first year as a Panther.
Hoffman collected two assists, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes. He also added six shots and a hit to his ledger.

Hoffman is coming off a career-high 36-goal, 70-point season and many thought his game would slide back toward the 60-point mark this season. But maybe not. Hoffman has four goals in two games and looks every part a stud sniper. Smart owners would be wise to peddle him in a trade, though. There are panicky owners out there already (go figure) and you might be able to snag a slow starter by leveraging Hoffman in a deal. He's good, but not this good.
Hoffman scored his first goal of the season in a 5-2 loss to the Lightning on Thursday. Coming off a career-high in goals last campaign with 36, Hoffman has hit the ground running, potting a goal in the 2019-20 season opener. With Vincent Trocheck now healthy, Hoffman should benefit from having a consistent center and a big role on the Cats' deadly power play. It looks like he's ready to have another big year.
