Mark Borowiecki (neck strain) should be available to play Friday night.
Coach Guy Boucher said the defenseman was pulled from the game as a precaution because of Borowiecki's past issues with concussions. "It's a neck thing and we just wanted to take a chance," Boucher said. "It's not a concussion, but we just want to make sure, with the history this year, that it's not something that's reoccurring. We just want to be cautious on that one. He wanted to come back. It was us saying, 'Let's on hold on here.'" He was hurt in a fight with Washington's Tom Wilson on Tuesday night. Mar 1 - 10:55 AM

Mark Borowiecki left Tuesday's game against Washington early because of a neck strain.

Borowiecki was injured in a fight with Capitals forward Tom Wilson. He only had four shifts in 1:53 of ice time and didn't return to the game.
Feb 28 - 10:33 AM

Mark Borowiecki logged a season-high 19:24 of ice time on Saturday against the Rangers.

Borowiecki posted three hits, two blocks, one assist and a plus-2 rating in the contest. Coach Guy Boucher may give him a shot to play with Cody Ceci, but the physical blueliner might not be ready for a shutdown role. Still, it seems as though Borowiecki could figure more prominently on Ottawa's defense corps down the stretch with Dion Phaneuf no longer on the roster.

Mark Borowiecki (concussion) is set to return on Thursday.

Borowiecki was previously regarded as probable so that's not surprising, but it's nice to have confirmation. Borowiecki missed 23 games due to the injury.

Mark Borowiecki will probably be back in the lineup on Thursday night.

Borowiecki was scratched for two games prior to Ottawa's break after he recovered from a concussion. He will add a physical dimension to the Senators' back end when he returns. Borowiecki hasn't played since Nov. 19.
Jan 17 - 9:53 AM

Mark Borowiecki is anxious to return to the lineup.

Borowiecki has medical clearance to return from a concussion, but he was scratched on Tuesday night. He might be back in the fold on Wednesday night at Toronto. "It's still going to be game time," Borowiecki said. "It's one of those things where I'm dying to play and anxious to play, but it's been six weeks for me and do I want to take the chance of flushing that all away for one night? I feel like I'm ready if need be. We're going to have that discussion tonight and see how some of our guys are feeling."

It looks like the Ottawa Senators have decided to scratch Mark Borowiecki from tonight's game.

Borowiecki has been dealing with a concussion but was healthy enough to go out for a skate during warmups. We'd consider him healthy but the odd man out at this point. Johnny Oduya (lower body), Nate Thompson (lower body) and Chris Wideman (hamstring) will miss the game due to their respective injuries.
Jan 9 - 7:16 PM

Mark Borowiecki (concussion) will be a game-time decision Tuesday night.

Borowiecki wants to play and could take Johnny Oduya's spot in the lineup. Oduya is dealing with an injury and left the morning skate early.

Mark Borowiecki (concussion) is nearing a return to the lineup.

Borowiecki passed his neuro-psych test on Wednesday, clearing him for full contact practice sessions. He hasn't experienced concussion symptoms since the Christmas break and hopes to return Jan. 9 against Chicago or Jan. 10 versus Toronto. Borowiecki said he won't rush himself back, though.
Jan 5 - 9:52 AM

Mark Borowiecki's return to the lineup from a concussion is not considered to be close even though he has been skating.

"We're not talking close. Closer, but I don't see it before mid-January," said coach Guy Boucher. "We might get lucky, but the problem is even if he's ready to practice, he hasn't played in so long. He'll need probably two weeks just getting back his timing. When you've missed so long, you can't just come back and go." Borowiecki has missed the last 15 games.

Mark Borowiecki (concussion) has resumed skating.

"I'm feeling much better, I've made some good steps," said Borowiecki. "I'm going to be out a little while longer, but I'm not 19 anymore. I'm not going to rush back and put myself in a tough situation. I've got to make sure I'm 100 percent." He has been sidelined since Nov. 19.

Mark Borowiecki (concussion) isn't close to being ready to return to the lineup.

Borowiecki has not resumed skating since he was concussed on Nov. 19 against the Rangers. "There's no update yet. It's the same. We're waiting for him to be able to rebound from that hit and right now we're not close," said coach Guy Boucher.
