Hoffman shipped to ECHL
The Binghamton Senators have loaned Mike Hoffman and Jason Bailey to the Elmira Jackels of the ECHL, while recalling minor-league veteran Yannick Tifu.
Hoffman, who was Quebec Major Junior Hockey League MVP last season, has struggled with Binghamton, scoring only six goals and 10 assists in 46 games. The Senators expected more. “It was more about I wanted Hoff to go down and play,” Binghamton coach Kurt Kleinendorst told the Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin.
Bailey, meanwhile, has played sparingly in Binghamton, registering no points in 17 games.
