Mike Hoffman recorded a goal and two assists in Monday's big 5-2 win over the Sharks.

Believe it or not, this was Hoffman's second three-point effort of the season (and career). While his goal was merely an empty-netter, his assists were well earned, and he also contributed a hit and three blocks. Hoffman continues to lead the team in goals with 26, and ranks fifth in points with 46.

Forward Mike Hoffman, enjoying an impressive rookie season, scored one of the Ottawa Senators' goals in their 5-4 shootout win over the visiting Calgary Flames Sunday night.

Hoffman's goal was his 24th of the season. He has 42 points on the season and is a candidate for the NHL's rookie-of-the-year honors. Other goals scored by Ottawa in this wild affair against the Flames were Alex Chiasson (10th), Milan Michalek (12th) and Mark Borowiecki (first). Hoffman's goal, on a strong wrist shot, was scored at 7:10 of the second period and gave the Sens a 4-0 lead, which they squandered in the third period by allowing four goals. Hoffman scored after a pass from Mika Zibanejad. The assist extended Zibanejad’s point streak to a career-high seven games (three goals, four assists).

Mike Hoffman netted two goals (one on the power play) and added an assist to lead the Senators to a 4-2 win over the Sharks on Saturday night.

With the way Filip Forsberg has played, Hoffman, who had one goal on the empty net, is unlikely to win the rookie of the year, but his stock in that race is gaining steam. He now has 23 goals and 39 points this season, with at least a point in eight of his past nine games. Fellow rookie Mark Stone also scored, and had an assist. Erik Karlsson got the other goal, on the power play. Kyle Turris picked up two helpers.

Mike Hoffman scored the game's only goal off a sweet Mike Zibanejad feed early on in the third period, defeating the Kings 1-0 on Thursday night.

After Zibanejad took a pass from Bobby Ryan, Zibs played a bit of dump-and-chase with himself to get into the Kings' zone and around Robyn Regehr. After retrieving the puck, he found a streaking Hoffman who chipped the perfect feed over a sprawling Jonathan Quick. Hoffman continues to lead the Senators in goals, now with 21 to go along with 36 points.

Mike Hoffman hit the 20-goal mark on Monday and now he's aiming to go higher.

"In the first couple of months of the season, once I started scoring, that was my goal, to reach 20," Hoffman said. "Now, I still have 27 games left. I'm looking more toward the 30 mark." He has recorded all of his goals this season at even strength, which has helped him register a plus-19 rating.

Mike Hoffman scored a goal and a power play assist in Ottawa's 7-2 victory over Edmonton on Saturday night.

The goal was a doozy as Hoffman danced around Richard Bachman in front of the crease to finish off a pretty passing sequence with Bobby Ryan and Mika Zibanejad. Hoff continues to lead the team in goals, now with 19 of them and 32 points.
Feb 14 - 5:59 PM

Mike Hoffman earned an assist in Ottawa's 2-1 loss to Washington.

He picked up the helper on a goal by Kyle Turris to give the Senators a 1-0 lead, but the Capitals bounced back took the lead shortly afterward. Hoffman has been rolling offensively with seven goals and five assists in his last 16 games.

Mike Hoffman is hoping to participate in the fastest skater competition during Saturday's skills competition.

Hoffman won the event at the Senators' skill competition this year, and at last year's AHL All-Star game. "It would be nice to go out there and try to win it," said Hoffman. "You try to win every event that you're in but skating is something that I try to do and do well. I think I could put up a good competition or good score." The rookie forward completed the drill in 13.7 seconds during last month's team skills competition.

Jan 14 - 1:12 AM

Mike Hoffman netted a goal for the Senators in their 5-1 win over the Coyotes on Saturday night.

Hoffman has really come out of nowhere to score 14 goals and record 21 points this season. Or maybe not. The fifth-round pick from the 2009 draft torched the AHL with 30 goals last season. Clarke MacArthur (goal, assist), Cody Ceci and Milan Michalek got the other goals. Mika Zibanejad registered two helpers.

Mike Hoffman netted his 13th goal of the season in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Flyers.

Lucky number 13 for Hoffman was the lone tally for the Sens' anemic offense and he surprisingly continues to lead the club in goals, two clear of Bobby Ryan and Clarke MacArthur. Jared Cowen picked up the only assist on the marker.

Ottawa assistant GM Pierre Dorion told TSN 1200 on Wednesday that he intends to touch base with Mike Hoffman's agent soon.

"We're not going to rush into anything," Dorion said. "I did talk to his agent, we're not allowed to talk (contract), but I did wish him the best of the season and told him I'd call him early in the new year to see where we can go with the contract." The Senators will also look into deals for Mika Zibanejad, Alex Chiasson and Mark Stone. All of them can become restricted free agents this summer.
