Mike Hoffman is another former Binghamton player called up to the Ottawa Senators late this year. Despite missing seven games due to injury, Hoffman re-joined the club since making his NHL debut with Ottawa back in December of 2011.
Originally from Kitchener, Hoffman was born November 24, 1989. He started his junior career with the Kitchener Dutchmen where he earned rookie of the year honours in the 2006-07 season. By the 2008 season, Hoffman had changed to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, playing for both the Gatineau Olympics and later the Drummondville Voltigeurs.
He was selected by the Ottawa Senators in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and attended their development camp as well as the Senators training camp before being returned to the junior ranks. During his time in the QMJHL, Hoffman won the league MVP and a first team all-star nomination.
Hoffman returned to the Sens camp in 2010 and was later re-assigned to Binghamton where he helped the B-Sens win the 2011 Calder Cup Championship.
