Hogberg's 3.12 GAA just barely edged out Anders Nilsson for the team lead, though his save percentage was a tad behind at .904.
Neither number was all that impressive, and Hogberg struggled to find his footing in what was a three-way battle for the top job in Ottawa that ended up with no real winner. Still, Hogberg has some value for next year, as he is the youngest of the three netminders from this season and will likely get every chance to win the No. 1 job in 2020-21.
Hogberg surrendered five goals on Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Ducks.
Hogberg spotted the Ducks a 4-0 advantage just 11:49 into the game. Head coach D.J. Smith didn't give his goalie any mercy in the first game of a back-to-back -- Hogberg would give up one more tally over the last 40 minutes. He dropped to 5-8-8 with a 3.12 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 24 contests. Craig Anderson has already been announced as the starter for Wednesday's game against the Kings. Hogberg's next chance to get back in the crease is Friday in Chicago.
Hogberg will draw the start for Tuesday's road matchup against the Ducks.
Hogberg will make his first start in the past three games after leaving the team to tend to a personal matter. The 25-year-old hasn't been great in his past five starts, accumulating a 2-2-1 record to go along with a 3.63 GAA and. 892 save percentage. Hogberg will face a solid matchup Tuesday, however, against a Ducks offense that ranks 29th in the league in goals per game (2.54).
Hogberg (personal) returned to practice Monday, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Hogberg has missed the Senators' last three games while tending to a personal matter in his native Sweden, but he'll be back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Anaheim. If he doesn't get the nod against the Ducks, the 25-year-old netminder will almost certainly be back between the pipes Wednesday against L.A.
Hogberg has gone home to Sweden for family reasons, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
This explains why Filip Gustavsson was recalled Monday morning, as he and Craig Anderson will handle the workload while Hogberg tends to this family matter. There's no timeline for when Hogberg will return to the team, but he's expected to miss the next couple of games, at least.
Hogberg made 25 saves in a 4-3 overtime win over Detroit on Saturday.
Hogberg has a 5-7-8 record, but he has won two in a row. He's not a great single-year option despite the back-to-back wins, but Hogberg could be auditioning for a job come September.
Hogberg will get the starting nod in Saturday's home game versus the Red Wings, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Hogberg is looking to end the month on a high note, as it's been rocky with a .906 save percentage, 3.24 GAA and 2-5-2 record. This is a very favorable matchup against the lowly Red Wings, too, as they've lost eight of the last nine games while averaging 1.6 goals per contest.
Hogberg made 32 saves in Thursday's 5-2 win over Vancouver.
You wouldn't know it by his 4-7-8 record, but Hogberg has quietly been a revelation in net for Ottawa. He has consistently kept an overmatched group of skaters in games and was finally rewarded with some goal support in this one. The 6-foot-5, 25-year-old should continue to draw the majority of starts for the Senators down the stretch as he strengthens his case for being Ottawa's top goalie in future seasons.
Hogberg will retake the cage Thursday when the Senators host the Canucks, Sylvain St-Laurent of LeDroit reports.
Hogberg faced a combined 79 shots and surrendered nine goals to the Jets and Blue Jackets in a regulation and overtime loss in his last two starts to drop his record to just 3-7-8 on the campaign. Vancouver is much less effective on the road offensively, entering the night averaging just 2.87 goals per game while sporting a minus-16 goal differential. This should give Hogberg an opportunity to get back in the win column Thursday after losing eight of his last nine as the goalie of record.
Hogberg stopped 41 of 45 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
The Swedish goalie was busy in goal Monday. Hogberg couldn't make a pair of one-goal leads stand, and ultimately lost when Emil Bemstrom tallied for the Blue Jackets in overtime. The 25-year-old dropped to 3-7-8 with a 3.10 GAA and a .908 save percentage in 21 appearances. Wins have already been hard to come by in Ottawa, and a group of skaters depleted by the trade deadline will likely keep Hogberg from success down the stretch.
Hogberg was the first goalie off the ice Monday, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports, indicating he will be in goal on the road versus Columbus.
Hogberg is back between the pipes after seeing action in just one of the Senators' previous four outings. The netminder will be without the club's leading scorer in Jean-Gabriel Pageau, who was shipped out to the Islanders on Monday. With even less offensive tools in tow, Hogberg will likely need to be at his absolute best to secure a win Monday.
Hogberg stopped 29 of 34 shots Thursday in a 5-1 loss to Winnipeg.
Hogberg and the Senators were overpowered on home ice, yielding five unanswered goals, including a hat trick by Winnipeg center Mark Scheifele. The rookie has just one win in his last nine appearances, going 1-6-2 in that time, although he's actually played pretty well behind an Ottawa squad that's often overmatched. Hogberg will try to get back into the win column Saturday against Montreal.
Hogberg will tend the home goal for Thursday's game against Winnipeg, Ken Wiebe of The Athletic reports.
Hogberg will enter the cage for the first time in three games, and he's deserved a better fate in his past five starts, going 1-3-1 along with a 2.86 GAA and .912 save percentage in that span. The Swede will face a decent matchup against a Jets offense that ranks 17th in the league in goals per game this year (2.98).
Hogberg was pulled in the middle of the second period Saturday after allowing three goals on 16 shots to Toronto.
It was more of a mercy pull than anything else. Hogberg wasn't responsible for any of the goals the Leafs scored and it was more likely the coach wanted to save him for Sunday's date with Dallas. Hopefully you had him benched in daily formats -- his single-game 5.66 GAA and .813 save percentage are almost insurmountable anchors.
Hogberg led his team on the ice for warmups and will start Saturday against Toronto, Murray Pam of Sporting News reports.
Hogberg will make his sixth straight start Saturday, having gone 1-2-1 over his previous five appearances. Ottawa's netminder is in tough against the potent Maple Leafs offense, and it would be best to avoid Hogberg in this matchup.
Hogberg stopped 32 of 34 shots during a 3-2 win over Arizona on Thursday.
Hogberg was sensational Thursday night, finishing this win with a .941 save percentage. It was the young netminder's first win in six starts, moving Hogberg's season record to 3-5-7. Playing behind a shaky Senators squad, Hogberg will be a risky fantasy play most nights in 2019-20, but he figures to have a bright future in the league.
Hogberg was the first goalie off the ice Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports, indicating he will defend the cage at home versus Arizona.
Hogberg is bogged down in a five-game losing streak in which he's posted a 0-3-2 record despite a solid .919 save percentage. Until Anders Nilsson (concussion) is cleared to play, Hogberg figures to continue carrying the load over veteran Craig Anderson so the team can evaluate the young netminder.
Hogberg yielded two goals on 35 shots in a 3-0 loss to the Avalanche on Tuesday.
To his credit, Hogberg did well against the Avalanche, but his fellow Senators didn't generate any offense. The Swede has now lost five straight starts (0-3-2) to fall to 2-5-7 on the year. He has a 2.93 GAA and a .912 save percentage through 17 appearances. The Senators are back at home Thursday to face the Coyotes.
Hogberg will patrol the road crease for Tuesday's game against the Avalanche, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.
The 25-year-old has perhaps deserved a better fate in his past five starts, going 1-2-2 with a 2.92 GAA and .922 save percentage. Hogberg will face a stiff test Tuesday, facing a Colorado offense that leads the league in goals per game this campaign (3.65).
Hogberg turned aside 11 of 12 shots after replacing Craig Anderson to begin the third period during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Jets.
The one goal Hogberg did allow came on a four-on-one rush during a Winnipeg power play, typifying the kind of defense Ottawa was playing in the afternoon affair. Hogberg has emerged as the Sens' No. 1 goalie since the calendar flipped to 2020, and on the season he sports a 2.98 GAA and .910 save percentage.
