Predators' Mark Borowiecki: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki (undisclosed) is participating in practice Tuesday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Borowiecki was deemed unfit to practice Monday, but whatever kept him off the ice was obviously minor. He's 31-years-old and has dealt with injuries in each of the past three campaigns, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the Senators give him a day off here and there as the regular season approaches. Borowiecki notched 18 points, 58 PIM, 199 hits and 120 blocks in 53 games last campaign.

Predators' Mark Borowiecki: Can't practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki was deemed unfit to practice Monday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

The reason for Borowiecki's absence is undisclosed. The veteran blueliner earned a two-year, $4 million contract in October and is expected to be a fixture in the lineup once he's healthy. Borowiecki has little offensive upside, but he accrued 199 hits and 120 blocked shots over just 53 games for the Senators in the 2019-20 season.

Predators' Mark Borowiecki: Lands in Music City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Predators on Friday.

After spending his entire career in his hometown of Ottawa, Borowiecki will head to Nashville and bolster the team's blue line. The 31-year-old recorded a career-high 18 points over 53 games with the Senators last year, and he was utilized in more of a defensive role, starting 61.5 percent of his shifts in the defensive zone. He piled up 199 hits and 120 blocked shots as a result, falling short of the 200-hit threshold for the first time since the 2013-14 campaign. Borowiecki will likely handle similar duties next season.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Good to go if play resumes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki (ankle) will be available to suit up if the NHL season picks back up, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Only in a scenario in which the league restarts the regular season will Borowiecki get back onto the ice, as the Senators won't be part of any postseason play. Even with the league on hiatus, the blueliner still put together a career year in which he set personal bests in goals (seven), assists (11) and ice time (17:56). If the Ottawa native continues to play additional minutes next year, he should be capable of topping the 20-point mark for the first time in his NHL career.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Sitting on career year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki (ankle) missed the final four weeks before the hiatus but had posted career highs in both goals (seven) and assists (11).

Boro surprised more than a few people this season when he was healthy, as he had never been known as anything more than a hard hitter and team-first defender. He's still very much a defense-first blueliner, but he's now shown a bit of value in daily formats and deeper season-long leagues, as well.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Sidelined indefinitely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki (ankle) will be out indefinitely, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Borowiecki returned from a two-game personal leave Thursday only to suffer an ankle injury that will hold him out for the immediate future. The veteran blueliner's injury is unfortunate for fantasy owners looking to capitalize on the veteran's career-high marks for points (18), goals (seven) and assists (11), and the Senators may need to recall some reinforcements along the blue line. Fortunately, the Senators have five home games ahead to potentially hold off that decision until they head out again to Columbus on Feb. 24.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Suffers injury Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki suffered a high-ankle injury in Thursday's win over Arizona, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Per coach D.J. Smith following the game, Borowiecki's injury isn't severe, but he's expected to miss "some time." The 30-year-old suffered the injury in an awkward collision at center ice and never returned to the game after leaving in the second period. The team will likely provide an update regarding Borowiecki's health ahead of Saturday's game against Toronto. This is tough news for the defenseman, especially considering he was having a career-best year with 18 points in 53 games.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Ready to go Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki (personal) has rejoined the team and will be in action versus Arizona on Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Borowiecki missed the Senators' two-game road trip while awaiting the birth of his child but will slot back into the lineup Thursday. The new dad has already set career highs in goals (seven), assists (11) and ice time (18:01) this season and figures to continue providing decent mid-range fantasy value in deeper formats.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Set to miss road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki is unlikely to travel with the team for its upcoming two-game road trip, as his wife is expected to give birth soon, per Dean Brown of the Senators Radio Network.

In order to bolster their defensive ranks, the Senators promoted Andreas Englund from the minors. Once the team is back in Ottawa, Borowiecki should slot back into the lineup on the third pairing versus Arizona on Thursday.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Deposits empty-netter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki scored an empty-net goal and blocked four shots in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Buffalo.

Borowiecki certainly earned his goal, blocking two consecutive shots on the penalty kill immediately before grabbing a loose puck and scoring on a bank shot from his own zone. The 30-year-old defenseman, has registered career highs for points (17) and goals (six) through 48 games this season.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Skating Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki (illness) returned to practice Monday, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

After missing two games over the past weekend due to a sickness, Borowiecki looks to be back to full health after participating in Monday's skate. He should be good to go for Tuesday's matchup versus the Blackhawks. The 30-year-old blueliner has accrued a career-high 16 points through 43 games.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Out again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki (illness) will remain sidelined for Saturday's game against the Canadiens.

Borowiecki's absence doesn't figure to last too much longer given the reason behind it, but the blueliner won't be able to make the second game of the back-to-back set Saturday. Cody Golubef will remain in the lineup in his absence after serving as a healthy scratch in the game before Borowiecki's unavailability.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: No-go Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki (illness) won't play Friday against the Red Wings, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Borowiecki was initially a game-time decision, but he will officially miss time due to illness. Expect Cody Goloubef to draw into the lineup in Borowiecki's place. The 30-year-old will try to get healthy in time for Saturday's game against the Canadiens.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Game-time call Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki is a game-time decision versus Detroit on Friday due to an illness, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Borowiecki's potential absence would be a significant blow to a Sens blue line that is already without Nikita Zaitsev (lower body), though Ron Hainsey (undisclosed) has been nearing a return to action. The 30-year-old Borowiecki has already set new career highs in goals (five) and points (16), which shouldn't come as a huge surprise considering he is logging 18:19 of ice time per game, nearly three minutes higher than last season.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Tallies third goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki scored a goal on two shots during a 4-3 overtime loss to the Lightning on Tuesday.

It was his first point of the month, but the goal gives Borowiecki both a career-high three goals and 11 points this season. He also has a plus-1 rating, which is something new for him, as he's never been a positive player in a season where he dresses for more than 10 NHL games. Borowiecki has a ton of games to break those ties, but owners shouldn't expect him to continue this pace. His real value is in averaging more than a PIM per game.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Records assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki posted an assist, seven hits, three shots on goal and two blocked shots in Friday's 2-1 win over the Flyers.

It was a little bit of everything from Borowiecki, who contributed his helper on a Filip Chlapik goal in the second period. The physical defenseman is up to 78 hits (second-best in the league), eight points, 35 blocked shots and 29 PIM in 19 games. The 30-year-old is only three points shy of matching his career high, and his impressive physical play always makes him of use to owners playing in "banger" formats.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Busy night includes game-tying goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Devils. He also had two PIM, four hits, one block and a plus-2 rating.

Borowiecki tallied his second goal of the season with 6:30 left in the third period, pulling the Devils even at 2-2. The 30-year-old has seven points in 18 games this season, on pace to blow away the career-high 11 points he had in both 2018-19 and 2014-15.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Surprising start to season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki picked up two assists Saturday in a 5-2 loss to Boston.

Borowiecki has never delivered more than 11 points in a season, but he already has five in 12 games. Add on 22 PIM and you might find fantasy value here in deep formats. Seriously.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Adds helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki notched an assist, five hits, three shots and two PIM in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

Borowiecki isn't known for much offense, but he has a goal and an assist in his last three games. For the year, the tough defender has supplied three points, 16 PIM and 44 hits in 11 contests. He's never topped 11 points or 70 games in a season -- his playing style isn't particularly well-suited to the fantasy game.

Senators' Mark Borowiecki: Lights lamp for first time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Borowiecki scored a goal on his lone shot in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Detroit.

Borowiecki picked up his first goal of the year early in the second period, beating Jonathan Bernier from long range to tie the game at 2-2. The goal snapped a lengthy drought for Borowiecki, who picked up an assist in the season opener and then was held off the scoresheet for seven straight games prior to tonight. The defensive-minded rearguard has scored exactly one goal in five of his last six NHL seasons.
