Report: Mike Hoffman to sign with Ottawa Senators tomorrow


According to reports out of News 88.9 fm in Saint John, Ottawa Senators prospect Mike Hoffman is expected to sign an entry-level deal with the team on Friday. No terms on the deal are available yet, but expect it to be a three-year, two-way, entry-level deal.

Drafted in the fifth round (130 overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Hoffman was named the QMJHL Most Valuable Players while with the Saint John Sea Dogs last season. He put up 46G and 85P in 56GP last year, bringing his career numbers to 227P (122G and 105A) in 180GP.

A natural centreman, Hoffman will definitely compete for a roster spot with Ottawa, who need scoring wherever possible. With the logjam of forwards on one-way contracts, though, Hoffman will likely spend a year playing in the AHL, competing alongside a huge group of newly-signed young offensive players, which will probably be a good thing for him.
