Mark Borowiecki left Saturday's morning skate early as he recovers from the flu.

He's considered a game-time decision, but if he couldn't get through the skate then it's not likely that he'll play. Borowiecki is day-to-day, and apparently nearing a return.

Mark Borowiecki won't play Thursday against Columbus due to the flu.

Well, that's no fun. He's been a steady workhorse defenseman all season long for Ottawa but he'll have to beat the bugs first. Consider him day-to-day.

Mark Borowiecki scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the New York Rangers.

Borowiecki opened the scoring just 2:02 into the game. The Sens followed that up by making it 2-0 when Zack Smith scored 1:08 later. Unfortunately for Ottawa, they blew a 3-1 lead in the second period before falling behind for the first time in the third. Borowiecki has two points in 33 games this season. He has zero fantasy appeal.

His name may be funny to say, but don't worry you'll see Mark Borowiecki's name plenty enough to get it right.

The bruising defender is leading the NHL with 149 hits thus far, despite losing two games to suspension. His lead is significant, with a 21-hit gap over Matt Martin. The 27-year-old has also posted 63 PIMs and 42 hits in 32 games this season, and averages just over 13-minutes per match. So if you're in need of his type of services, make sure you dial Borowiecki.

Mark Borowiecki has been suspended two games for boarding Tyler Toffoli on Saturday.

You can check out the 95-second explanation via the link below. In short, the department says that the defender had "ample time" to "avoid, or at least minimize contact." And they're right. Toffoli had enough time to look up, find Borowiecki, and turn his body to protect the puck. For his part, Borowiecki has apologized for his actions and agreed that what he did was wrong, and will learn from the experience. He'll be eligible on Saturday the 17th against New Jersey, and he'll forfeit a bit over $12K in salary.

Mark Borowiecki didn't look good against Montreal in preseason action on Thursday night.

He was guilty of giving away the puck plenty of times and he got beat wide on the Canadiens' first goal. Borowiecki also briefly left the game, favoring his shoulder, after he was checked into the boards by Greg Pateryn. It's unclear if that will cost him any time, but he appears to be fine for now.

Mark Borowiecki and Chris Wideman may be Ottawa's third defense pairing going into the season.

If that is the case then Senators GM Pierre Dorion is "comfortable with that." Dorion said he would like to add some depth in case of injuries, but he feels that Michael Kostka or Fredrik Claesson is capable of filling in as well.
