Ottawa is open to giving Mike Hoffman a long-term deal if he continues to rack up points like he did in his successful rookie campaign.

The Senators would like to see him improve his two-way game and play with more consistency, though. "Mike's play tailed off a bit in the second half (two goals in the last 16 games) and we want to see if Mike can do it again ... we have a lot of confidence and faith Mike can do that next year," said assistant GM Pierre Dorion. Hoffman was awarded a one-year, $2 million deal from arbitration.

Mike Hoffman isn't disappointed that he wasn't nominated for the Calder Trophy (top rookie).

"I wouldn’t say disappointed, those guys had excellent years and should definitely be proud of themselves and deserve to be there," Hoffman said. "What do you do? It’s not up to me. I played as hard as I could every game, so at the end of the day it doesn’t lie in my hands." Teammate Mark Stone, Florida defenseman Aaron Ekblad and Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau were the three nominees. Hoffman finished the regular season with 27 goals and 48 points in 79 games.

Hoffman picked up the primary assist on Bobby Ryan's first period goal, and he scored a goal of his own in the third period. Patrick Weircioch, Erik Karlsson and Eric Condra also scored for the Senators. The Senators appeared to be dead in the water after going down 3-0 in the series but they will now return home trailing 3-2. Ottawa has allowed just three goals in three games since Craig Anderson replaced Andrew Hammond in the series. Game six will take place on Sunday night at 6:00 PM EST.

Apr 23 - 11:18 AM

Mike Hoffman, who led the Senators in goals during the regular season with 27, scored the only goal that mattered for Ottawa Wednesday night.

Hoffman found the net at 9:05 of the third period to give the Sens a 1-0 victory over the visiting Montreal Canadiens. The win enabled Ottawa to avoid being swept out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Montreal leads the best-of-seven, first-round series 3-1. The teams will return to Montreal for Game 5 Friday night. For Hoffman, the goal was his first of the postseason. It was the result largely of some hustle by center Mika Zibanejad. He hit the Canadiens' Tom Gilbert as the defenseman tried to backhand the puck out of the zone and along the boards from the corner. The puck was knocked down at the blue line, where Sens defenseman Cody Ceci was able to get possession and set up Hoffman in the high slot. Zibanejad went from the corner to the front of the net and screened Canadiens goaltender Carey Price as Hoffman's shot went in high on the glove side. For the first time in the series, the Sens didn't have a 1-0 lead after the first period.
Apr 22 - 10:18 PM

Mike Hoffman will open the postseason on the fourth line.

He led the Senators with 27 goals during the regular season, but Milan Michalek's return from injury will bump him to a combination with David Legwand and Alex Chiasson. Wednesday's game in Montreal will be his first in the NHL playoffs.
