Top Will Borgen News

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Makes progress late in season

    Borgen finished 2021-22 with eight points in 36 contests.

    Borgen saw almost no playing time early in the year before injuries opened up a chance for him throughout December and January. He then stepped into a full-time role following the trades of Mark Giordano to Toronto and Jeremy Lauzon to Nashville at the deadline. Borgen added 89 hits, 49 shots on net, 28 PIM and a plus-1 rating, but he rarely saw more than third-pairing usage. The 25-year-old will be in a contract year in 2022-23 ahead of restricted free agency.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Supplies assist Friday

    Borgen notched an assist, three shots on goal and four hits in Friday's 3-0 win over the Sharks.

    Borgen ended a four-game point drought by picking up the secondary helper on Victor Rask's empty-net tally. Regular playing time since the trade deadline has served Borgen well. He's earned six of his eight points this season in that span. The defenseman has added 87 hits, 33 blocked shots, 48 shots on net, 28 PIM and a plus-2 rating through 35 appearances.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Pockets helper

    Borgen recorded an assist, three hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche.

    Borgen helped out on Kole Lind's opening tally 1:12 into the game. With four points in his last nine games, Borgen has more than doubled his scoring output in April alone. The 25-year-old defenseman is up to seven points, 41 shots on net, 80 hits, 31 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in 30 contests this season.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Tallies second goal

    Borgen scored a goal and added two hits in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Devils.

    Borgen struck at 10:49 of the first period to tie the game at 1-1. He's picked up four points in 11 games since becoming a regular in the lineup after the trade deadline. The 25-year-old defenseman has just six points with 74 hits, 25 blocked shots, 40 shots on net and a minus-1 rating in 28 outings this season.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Slings helper in loss

    Borgen notched an assist, four shots on goal and three hits in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Blues.

    Borgen earned his third assist in the last six games, and he's gone plus-7 in that span. That's impressive for a third-pairing defenseman on a team that's often playing from behind. The 25-year-old has stepped into an everyday role since the trade deadline, and he's up to five points, 69 hits, 21 blocked shots, 35 shots on net and a plus-1 rating in 24 outings this season.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Plucks apple in loss

    Borgen notched an assist, six hits and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Borgen has picked up two assists and 22 hits in five games since the trade deadline. The 25-year-old has taken on a regular role in that span after Mark Giordano and Jeremy Lauzon were shipped out in trades. Borgen's play has resembled the latter more than the former -- he's a physical force with four points, 60 hits, 30 shots on net, 21 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 22 appearances this season.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Shows off physicality

    Borgen posted an assist, eight hits and four shots on goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Kings.

    After the Kraken were active sellers at the trade deadline, an everyday role has opened up for Borgen. He earned his second assist and third point of the season on a Morgan Geekie goal late in Saturday's contest. The 25-year-old has added 46 hits, 26 shots on net, 19 PIM, 18 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating in 19 appearances this season. Borgen's place in the lineup should be safe as long as Haydn Fleury (upper body) is out of action.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Not seeing playing time

    Borgen has been a healthy scratch for the last 13 games.

    Borgen's position on the Kraken roster is the eighth defenseman -- there's simply no room for him in the lineup when all the other blueliners are healthy. He's earned two points with 20 shots on net and 37 hits in 16 appearances, but he's a non-factor in fantasy even if he was playing in half of the team's games.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Clears virus protocols

    Borgen was activated from the COVID-19 protocols Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Borgen will be available to play Wednesday versus the Coyotes, though it's unclear if he'll suit up. The 25-year-old will likely continue to compete with Haydn Fleury for playing time going forward. Borgen has two points, 36 hits and 15 PIM in 15 appearances this season.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Borgen was designated for the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday.

    Borgen has averaged 14:32 of ice time and recorded two points over 15 appearances this season. His last point came as a goal in a 5-2 loss to Vancouver on Jan. 1. The 25-year-old will miss Tuesday's game against Boston at a minimum.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Seeing regular playing time

    Borgen has played in seven of the Kraken's 11 games in January.

    Borgen got his first NHL goal on Jan. 1 versus the Canucks, though he hasn't gotten on the scoresheet in the six appearances he's made since. The Minnesota native has two points, 15 shots on net, 34 hits and 15 PIM through 14 contests. His playing time will likely decrease once Jamie Oleksiak (lower body) and Carson Soucy (lower body) are healthy again.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Nets first NHL goal

    Borgen scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks.

    Borgen was responsible for a turnover that set up the Canucks' first goal, but he partially made up for it by scoring his first NHL goal in the third. It took him 22 games in his career to check off that milestone. The 25-year-old has just two points, 11 shots on net, 14 blocked shots, 10 hits and a minus-4 rating in eight appearances. Even if he can hold a spot in the lineup while Jeremy Lauzon (COVID-19 protocols) is out, Borgen isn't likely to draw much interest in fantasy.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Cleared to play

    Borgen (lower body) is available versus Edmonton on Friday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

    While Borgen may be healthy enough to play, that doesn't guarantee he'll be in the lineup against the Oilers. The blueliner has been a healthy scratch for much of the season and is really only getting an opportunity with Mark Giordano (COVID-19) unavailable. Once the Kraken captain is cleared to return, Borgen should once again find himself watching from the press box.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Dealing with lower-body issue

    Borgen (lower body) won't play Wednesday against the Red Wings, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.

    Borgen was a healthy scratch for 20 straight contests before appearing in the Kraken's last two games, so his absence will almost certainly go unnoticed in most fantasy circles. Another update on the 24-year-old blueliner's status should surface once he's deemed fit to play.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Gets first point against old team

    Borgen logged an assist and blocked three shots in Monday's 7-4 win over the Sabres.

    Borgen, who made 14 appearances with the Sabres, got his first NHL point against his former team when he set up Mason Appleton's second-period goal. The 24-year-old Borgen has played in the last two games since Mark Giordano (COVID-19 protocols) has been out. Borgen has added eight blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in a third-pairing role. His place in the lineup isn't secure, so fantasy managers don't need to follow his progress closely.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Still waiting for debut

    Borgen has yet to suit up for the Kraken this year.

    Borgen has been a healthy scratch through 10 contests, as the Kraken have carried eight defensemen on the roster. The Minnesota native made 10 appearances for the Sabres last year, but he's yet to record his first NHL point. At this stage, it wouldn't be shocking to see the Kraken eventually send Borgen to AHL Charlotte to get some playing time -- it doesn't do the 24-year-old much good to only sit and watch.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Takes ice at practice

    Borgen (undisclosed) is on the ice at the Kraken's training camp practice Thursday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

    Borgen missed the final three games of the season last year with the Sabres. The defenseman has played in 14 NHL games across two seasons, but he has yet to record a point. The 24-year-old has posted 42 hits, 17 blocked shots and a minus-9 rating, so he'll likely be competing for a bottom-four role with a Kraken team not short on blueliners.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Picks up two-year deal

    Borgen (undisclosed) penned a two-year, $1.8 million contract with Seattle on Thursday.

    Borgen -- who was select by the Kraken from Buffalo in the NHL Expansion Draft -- was set to have an arbitration hearing in August but was able to work out a new deal with his new team. With the Sabres last year, the 24-year-old defenseman only played in 10 games. While he is unlikely to feature every single night, the Minnesota native should see significantly more opportunities to get on the ice this year and should be in the mix for an Opening Night roster spot.

  • Kraken's Will Borgen: Links up with expansion franchise

    Borgen (undisclosed) was selected in Wednesday's Expansion Draft by the Kraken from the Sabres, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Borgen has appeared in just 14 NHL contests over the past three years and is still looking for his first NHL point. As such, fantasy players shouldn't be expecting him to factor into Seattle's blue line with any consistency this upcoming season or to provide much in the way of fantasy value.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Finishes season without a point

    Borgen (undisclosed) will miss Saturday's season finale against the Penguins, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Borgen finishes the season having played just 10 games, and he's yet to record a point through 14 career NHL appearances. The 2015 fourth-round pick will hope to earn a more consistent role in the NHL next season, though Borgen hasn't done much to show he deserves one.
