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.

Mike Hoffman registered a pair of assists in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Not a good response from the Senators after owner Eugene Melnyk said changes could be coming if they didn't turn things around. Hoffman helped set up goals by Chris Wideman and Mika Zibanejad. The 26-year-old has 26 goals and a career-high 53 points in 70 games in 2015-16.

Mar 16 - 8:12 AM

Mike Hoffman is projected to start Tuesday's game on the fourth line.

Coach Dave Cameron hinted that his lineup could stay the same after he said he liked the combinations that finished Sunday's game against Dallas. That means that Hoffman could be back with Curtis Lazar and Chris Neil. He still could play on the top power-play unit, which is a silver lining.
Mar 8 - 10:44 AM

Mike Hoffman logged 13:46 of ice time versus Dallas on Sunday.

That is up slightly from the 10:45 of playing time he received against Toronto on Saturday when he didn't play a shift in the third period. "It's performance-based now," coach Dave Cameron said. "You always make your decision based on that game. When Mike plays fast, he's effective. A lot of times when you bench a guy, it's not just so much what they're doing, other guys are on their game." Cameron wants Hoffman to earn his ice time.
Mar 7 - 10:42 AM

Mike Hoffman didn't play in the third period of Saturday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

It's unclear if Hoffman was benched or injured, but some reports saying he was benched have surfaced in the last little while. The 26-year-old played just 10:45 seconds against the Leafs and if he was benched, it'll be interesting to see how much he plays against Dallas on Sunday. Hoffman has 25 goals and 46 points in 62 games this season.

Ottawa GM Bryan Murray wants Mike Hoffman to heat up again and he is using a contract extension to incentivize the winger.

Hoffman tallied 17 goals in the first 27 games, but he has scored eight times in his past 33 outings. He is a pending restricted free agent.

Mike Hoffman tallied his 23rd goal in Thursday's blowout loss to Edmonton.

He got the Senators on the board after the Oilers had taken a 3-0 lead.

The Senators have been struggling, but Hoffman's superb season has him sitting on 41 points in 48 games.
