Borowiecki (illness) is expected to suit up against Toronto on Saturday, per Dean Brown of the Senators Radio Network. Borowiecki missed Thursday's clash with the Blues due to illness, but he appears to be healthy enough to play Saturday, hence the demotion of Erik Brannstrom to the minors. Considering the 29-year-old Borowiecki has tallied a mere four points in 46 games this season, he likely won't offer much in terms of offensive production.
Borowiecki (illness) will miss Thursday's game versus St. Louis. The blueliner's absence will do little to alter fantasy fates, as Borowiecki has found the scoresheet just one time in his last 23 games and has only four points in 46 games this season. Cody Goloubef will take his place in Thursday's lineup.
Borowiecki is under the weather and will be a game-time decision against the Blues on Thursday, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports. Borowiecki has just one point in his previous 23 appearances, so his potential absence from the lineup is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy owners. The Sens don't have any emergency depth on the blue line and will need to promote a player from the minors if Borowiecki is unable to suit up Thursday.
Borowiecki had four blocks and two hits in 15:42 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to the Capitals. Borowiecki was able to make his return to the ice after missing the last six games with a foot injury. The fact that the 29-year-old was able to play 15 minutes should be a positive sign going forward. Though Borowiecki hasn't produced offensively -- three points in 39 games -- he has been a force on the defensive end with 63 blocks this year.
Borowiecki (foot) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Borowiecki figures to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Capitals. The Senators sold three big-name forwards -- Matt Duchene (CLM), Ryan Dzingel (CLM) and Mark Stone (VGK) -- ahead of Monday's trade deadline, so this may be a significant adjustment for Boro, who has missed the last six games. He's accumulated 153 hits and 59 blocked shots through 38 appearances this season, but defensive stats only go so far in fantasy hockey contest.
