Mark Borowiecki is ready to "unleash the beast" after a quiet preseason.

Borowiecki is known for hits and penalty minutes, but he only spent four minutes in the sin bin over four exhibition games. "You want to play hard, you want to play intense, but there's a lot of guys who worked hard for four or five months to get this opportunity," he said. "The last thing you want to do is drill someone in the head and end their season before it starts. I think there's a bit of a respect factor there." He led the league with 154 penalty minutes last season and ranked first overall with 364 hits.

Mark Borowiecki leads all defensemen in hits over the last three seasons with 868.

Luke Schenn (714), Alexei Emelin (701) and Radko Gudas (699) round out the top five. Even though he racks up the hits, Borowiecki won't have any fantasy value going forward.
