Now that Marc Methot is back from injury, look for Mark Borowiecki, Jared Cowen and when he is healthy, Patrick Wiercioch to rotate in and out of the Ottawa lineup.
The Sens have five core defensemen in Erik Karlsson, Chris Phillips, Methot, Cody Ceci and Eric Gryba. That leaves one spot per game open to one of Borowiecki, Cowen and Wiercioch, who is currently on the injured list. This will greatly reduce Borowiecki's limited fantasy value as you can't sit in the penalty box if you are sitting in the press box. Dec 6 - 11:13 AM

Mark Borowiecki (groin) is expected to draw back into Ottawa's lineup on Tuesday.

He missed games on Friday and Saturday because of a groin injury. Borowiecki has one assist, 44 penalty minutes and 60 hits in 18 games.
Dec 2 - 8:09 AM

Look for Mark Borowiecki to sit in the press box more often in the coming games.

He was a healthy scratch Friday night against the Panthers. With Chris Phillips now healthy, Jared Cowen playing better and Marc Methot on the verge of a return to action, Borowiecki will likely be the odd man out more often than not. Too bad, as he is a nice source of penalty minutes when he is in the lineup.

Mark Borowiecki returned to action on Thursday November 6.

He logged 18:33 of ice time in his return from an undisclosed injury. Borowiecki engaged in fisticuffs with Minnesota's Marco Scandella less than a minute into the second period and he racked up seven hits in a 3-0 win.
Nov 7 - 2:42 AM

The reason Mark Borowiecki has not played in the Senators' last two games is that he is dealing with some type of undisclosed injury.

That makes more sense to us as Borowiecki had been playing well on the Sens' third defensemen pairing with Eric Gryba and should not have been a candidate to be a healthy scratch. Consider Borowiecki day-to-day.

Mark Borowiecki won't play against Boston Saturday night.

It is unclear if the tough-guy defenseman is injured or is a healthy scratch. For the record, Borowiecki did not play against the Hawks on Thursday night. Jared Cowen will skate in Borowiecki's place.
Nov 1 - 11:21 AM

Mark Borowiecki has been a nice surprise for the Senators this season.

For a defenseman who was not expected to crack the Ottawa lineup, Borowiecki has been very steady. Although he does not have any offensive ability to speak of, Borowiecki is a tough customer and can certainly accumulate penalty minutes. If you are in a pool that values PIMs, keep Borowiecki in mind.

Mark Borowiecki cracked Ottawa's roster to open the 2014-15 regular season.

He'll be paid like an NHL regular after this season because he inked a three-year, $3.3 million extension in August. Borowiecki picked up an assist, five hits and a minor penalty for interference in Ottawa's 3-2 loss to Nashville in Thursday's regular season opener. The assist was the first one he's earned in the NHL.
Oct 10 - 1:48 AM

Mark Borowiecki is anxious to prove he belongs in the NHL after signing a three-year, $3.3 million extension with the Senators on Monday.

"It gives me a bit of confidence," Borowiecki said. "It's a bit of security, but it's also a kick in the pants. It's time for me to establish myself as an NHL player." He'll earn $600,000 this year and when his new three-year deal kicks in, he will be making $1.1 million per season. Ottawa has seven defensemen on guaranteed contracts, in addition to Cody Ceci who is expected to play with the big club again.

Mark Borowiecki has received a three-year extension from the Ottawa Senators worth $3.3 million.

He picked up one goal, 41 hits and 48 penalty minutes in 13 games with Ottawa last season. Borowiecki spent most of the 2013-14 campaign in the minors, where he generated eight points and 158 penalty minutes in 50 contests. His extension will kick in after the upcoming season.
Aug 18 - 2:09 PM

Mark Borowiecki has been shipped back to the AHL.

He was assigned to the minors on Monday after skating in 13 games with Ottawa. Borowiecki had one goal and 48 penalty minutes during that span.

Mark Borowiecki (neck) will be able to play on Wednesday.

Borowiecki sustained the injury when he was hit from behind by Kevin Westgarth. The Senators defenseman has a goal and 43 penalty minutes in 11 games this season.

Ottawa Senators defenseman Mark Borowiecki left Sunday's game with a neck strain after a boarding hit by Ottawa Senators tough guy Kevin Westgarth.

Westgarth might face a call from the NHL for that hit, which earned him a two-minute boarding penalty.

Mark Borowiecki scored his first career NHL goal Thursday.

He concluded Ottawa's 4-1 win over Montreal with a plus-2 rating in 12:22 of playing time. Borowieccki shouldn't be on your fantasy radar at this time.

Mark Borowiecki, who was recalled from the AHL Friday, will be in the lineup Sunday against the Stars.

The Senators' defence has been terrible and coach Paul MacLean is looking for answers. Perhaps Borowiecki will provide some toughness in front of the net and will help neutralize some of the opponents' forwards. Borowiecki isn't much of an offensive threat but he can help in the penalty minute department. The 23-year-old rearguard amassed 157 PIMs in 53 games with Binghamton last season and 18 penalty minutes in a brief six-game stint with the Sens. Eric Gryba will sit out against the Caps to make room for Borowiecki.
