Mike Hoffman isn't discouraged by his lack of goals early in the year.
"I'm just trying to keep a level head, I know the goals are going to come," said Hoffman, who has three assists after four contests. "You don't want to hit the panic button too early. I feel like I'm getting a lot of shots, a lot of chances every game." Hoffman has 20 shots on goal so far, so it will be only a matter of time before he gets one through. Oct 21 - 8:39 AM

Oct 1 - 6:39 PM

Mike Hoffman scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 4-3 OT win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Hoffman's second period goal gave the Senators a 3-2 lead and he scored the game-winner 19 seconds into overtime. The 26-year-old scored 29 goals and 59 points in 78 games last season. He's scored 56 goals in his first two full NHL seasons. Matt Puempel and Bobby Ryan also scored for Ottawa on Thursday.

The Senators will look give Mike Hoffman a long look on a line with Kyle Turris and Mark Stone this season.

It could very well be the Senators' top unit once the season starts, provided Stone is over his concussion. Hoffman had a breakout season in 2015-16 with 59 points in 78 games. If he skates on the Sens' top line and gets ample power-play ice time, which he should garner, Hoffman will be a good candidate to repeat his level of production this campaign.

Mike Hoffman has inked a four-year contract with the Ottawa Senators.

The average annual value of the deal is $5.1875 million. He will make $3.8 million next season and then earn $5.65 million in three years after that. Hoffman registered personal bests in 2015-16 in goals (29), assists (30) and points (59) in 78 matches.

Mike Hoffman wants to stay with the Ottawa Senators for the foreseeable future.

"That’s obviously my No. 1 goal. I love Ottawa, I love the fans there," Hoffman said. "We’re a great team, great guys, so that’s obviously my first priority, to try to get something done with them." Hoffman filed for arbitration and has a hearing scheduled for August 4. That all-but guarantees that Hoffman will be with the Senators for the start of the 2016-17 campaign, but the ideal would likely be for the two sides to agree to a long-term contract prior to that date.
Jul 18 - 4:28 AM

Mike Hoffman has received an arbitration date of August 4.

That gives Ottawa and Hoffman the maximum amount of time to settle their differences before this matter is forced upon an arbitrator. He's likely to get a significant raise from last season's $2 million salary given that he recorded 29 goals and 59 points in 78 contests.
Jul 11 - 4:26 PM

The stakes are high with regards to Mike Hoffman as the possibility of an arbitrator deciding his contract looms.

Hoffman has filed for arbitration, which does suggest that one way or another he will be playing for Ottawa next season. The issue is that he'll be eligible to test the UFA market next summer and it wouldn't be surprising if he does if the two sides can't see eye-to-eye over the next few weeks. If the Senators and Hoffman can work out a long-term deal prior to his arbitration date, then the hearing will be moot. He had 29 goals and 59 points in 78 contests last season.
Jul 6 - 4:35 AM

Mike Hoffman has decided to file for salary arbitration.

Hoffman is coming off of a one-year, $2 million deal. He's in a position to get a sizable raise after scoring 29 goals and 59 points in 78 games last season.
Jul 5 - 6:03 PM

The deadline for Mike Hoffman to file for arbitration is this coming Tuesday.

Neither the Sens nor Hoffman want this contract negotiation to be settled by an arbitrator, so look for both sides to be at the bargaining table for the next few days with the hope of getting a deal done.
Jul 2 - 11:12 AM

Ottawa GM Pierre Dorion doesn't want to go to salary arbitration with Mike Hoffman.

The two sides will continue to work on various terms to avoid that outcome. Hoffman was awarded a one-year deal worth $2 million last August through salary arbitration.
Jun 25 - 5:40 PM

Mike Hoffman can become a restricted free agent in July and there hasn't been any news on negotiations.

He can go to salary arbitration if the two sides can't come to terms. Hoffman is a key member of the Senators and he broke out in 2015-16 with 29 goals and 59 points in 78 contests.
Jun 14 - 9:43 AM

Mike Hoffman is very happy about the Ottawa Senators' decision to name Guy Boucher as the team's new head coach.

Hoffman and Boucher work together during their time with the QMJHL's Drummondville Voltigeurs. This is awesome," the 26-year old sniper said from his home in Kitchener. "Me and him had a good relationship in junior. We won a championship together, then kind of moved on. You never know if you’re ever going to even see him or have him coach you again, then look what happens. We’re both here, at the NHL level. I’m looking forward to having him behind the bench and leading us." Hoffman had 29 goals and 59 points in 78 games in 2015-16 and might take another step forward in 2016-17.

Mike Hoffman is expected to get a boost from the hiring of new head coach Guy Boucher.

He coached Hoffman for parts of two season in the QMJHL with the Drummondville Voltigeurs from 2007-09. "The one thing I've learned about Mike is don't get fooled by his demeanour, he deeply cares, he deeply cares," Boucher said. "It's just a question of channelling it in the right direction." Hoffman was considered as a possible trade candidate in the off-season, but now it's believed the team will sign the pending restricted free agent. Boucher feels like he can get more out of Hoffman, which could be good news for his fantasy owners. He recorded 29 goals and 59 points in 78 games this past season.
