Hoffman scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets. He also picked up an assist.

Hoffman showcased a ton of offensive potential with AHL Binghamton last season, but he'll have difficulty finding the net with much regularity while he sees light minutes in a bottom-six role.
