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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Borowiecki delivered six hits Saturday in a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay, but those were his only contributions in the contest.
This is what Borowiecki does: he's a masher who's asked to be physical and does it well. If your league counts hits, he's a valuable asset, but if not, there isn't much reason for you to own him.
Borowiecki (upper body) is expected to play in the season finale against the Blue Jackets on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
There was some thought that Borowiecki, following a four-game injury layoff, wouldn't be an option in the finale for a Senators team that basically called it a season ahead of the trade deadline. However, the resident tough guy is apparently getting set for his 53rd contest of the 2018-19 campaign. Boro's most notable stat comes in the form of hits -- he's compiled 208 of those as a nice complement to his 91 blocked shots this year. Still, the obvious lack of offensive production (five points) means he'll be an afterthought in fantasy drafts during the fall.
Borowiecki (upper body) won't join the Senators on their upcoming two-game road trip, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
The Senators will only have one game remaining following their brief road trip, so it's quite possible that Borowiecki won't play again this season. If that ends up being the case, the 29-year-old blueliner will finish the campaign having notched just five points while posting a minus-12 rating in 52 appearances.
Borowiecki (upper body) won't play in Monday's game versus the Lightning, Dean Brown of the Senators Radio Network reports.
Borowiecki will miss his second straight game as he tries to shake this upper-body condition. His absence will allow Ben Harpur to stay in the defensive rotation. Borowiecki will try to return for Wednesday's game versus the Rangers.
