Top Will Borgen News

  • 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.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Dealing with minor injury

    Borgen (undisclosed) won't play Thursday against the Penguins, but he should be good to go for Saturday's rematch with Pittsburgh, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    With Borgen dealing with a minor injury, Colin Miller is on track to slot into a bottom-pairing role for Thursday's contest. Confirmation on Borgen's status for Saturday's rematch with the Penguins should surface prior to puck drop.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Ready to rock

    Borgen (forearm) will be activated off injured reserve and return to the Sabres' lineup Thursday versus Boston, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Borgen has been sidelined since late February after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured right forearm, but he'll finally return to the lineup Thursday, skating on Buffalo's third pairing versus the Bruins. He's gone scoreless through four top-level appearances this season.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Upgraded to day-to-day

    Borgen (forearm) is now considered day-to-day, Heather Engel of NHL.com reports.

    Borgen has been sidelined since late February after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured right forearm, but it appears as though the 24-year-old blueliner could be ready to return sooner rather than later. He's gone scoreless through four NHL appearances this season.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Could return after road trip

    Borgen (forearm) could return as early as April 17 against the Penguins, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Borgen has been ruled out for the next three games as Buffalo wraps up a road trip. The 24-year-old has already missed the last 26 games after undergoing surgery on his arm. He'll be searching for his first NHL point when he returns.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Not traveling for Tuesday's game

    Borgen (forearm) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Devils, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Borgen skated Monday, and interim coach Don Granato said the team should have a better idea of his timeline after Borgen's evaluation Monday evening. The 24-year-old defenseman played just four games before getting hurt, but injuries on Buffalo's blue line could open the door for Borgen to play more once he's healthy.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Shifts to injured reserve

    Borgen (forearm) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Borgen underwent surgery on his broken right forearm earlier Tuesday, so this is an expected move. The 24-year-old blueliner is expected to be out 6-8 weeks while he recovers.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Undergoes surgery, out 6-8 weeks

    Borgen underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair a fractured right forearm and will require 6-8 weeks of recovery.

    Borgen has played in four games this season, and he was potentially going to be needed more often following news that Jake McCabe (knee) is out for the season. However, the 24-year-old defenseman will now be out until April at the earliest, leaving the Sabres shorthanded on the blue line. Henri Jokiharju and Brandon Davidson should both see increased duties for the time being.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Sitting out Monday

    Borgen (upper body) won't play in Monday's game versus the Islanders, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Borgen's injury was initially considered to be minor, but he'll sit out after playing the last four games. Once he's back to full health, Borgen could secure a consistent role on the blue line following news that Jake McCabe (knee) is out for the season.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Dealing with upper-body injury

    Head coach Ralph Krueger said Sunday that Borgen has an upper-body injury and is day-to-day, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Borgen will be re-evaluated Monday. The 24-year-old has played in the last four games for the Sabres, registering 12 hits and no points. A quick return to action would be ideal, as Jake McCabe (leg) is likely facing an extended absence.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Back on active roster

    The Sabres added Borgen to the active roster ahead of Thursday's game against the Capitals, per CapFriendly.

    Borgen has suited up the past two games for the Sabres, dominating on the defensive end, racking up eight hits and three blocks over the span. He'll rejoin the team on the active roster, as he's expected to work on the third defensive pair for Thursday's game.

  • Sabres' Will Borgen: Reassigned to taxi squad

    Borgen was sent back to the taxi squad Wednesday.

    Borgen played in both games of the Sabres' back-to-back after being added to the active roster in which he registered eight hits, two shots and three blocks while averaging 16:04 of ice time. Once Rasmus Ristolainen and Brandon Montour (not injury related) are back up to match fitness, Borgen should find himself back in the minors.
