Hoffman potted two goals and was a plus-3 in Friday's win over the Ducks.

The Ducks are going to hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, baby Hoffman's just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake. Shake it Hoff, shake it Hoff. The 25-year-old now has 10 goals and 16 points in 29 games, to go with an impressive plus-13 rating. The second-liner has been remarkably consistent since the beginning of November, never going more than three games without recording a point. Playing on a line with Bobby Ryan, Hoffman is worth a look in some deeper leagues right now.

Hoffman picked up an assist and attempted five shots in Monday's loss to the Sabres.

That's three assists in four games for Hoffman, who has been an efficient producer no matter where he's played this season. Of late, the Senators have been using him on the second line with Bobby Ryan and Mika Zibanejad, an arrangement that could enable him to remain a solid complimentary scorer for the team the rest of the way.

Hoffman scored the first goal of the game in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Islanders, snapping a seven-game streak without finding twine.

After going on a binge in which he scored six goals in five games, Hoffman proceeded to manage just a pair of assists over the following seven contests. His ice time has been inconsistent, bouncing between the 12-minute range and the 15-plus minutes he enjoyed Tuesday, which has probably been a factor in his similarly inconsistent scoring.

Hoffman opened the scoring early in the first period Thursday against Edmonton and finished it with the game-winning goal in overtime.

Wow -- that's six goals in the last four games for the red-hot sniper, who now has seven in 13 games on the season. While this may seem like an out-of-nowhere development, Hoffman was a big-time scorer in juniors and is rapidly playing his way into a bigger role for Ottawa.

Hoffman scored his fourth goal of the season and had four shots on goal in Sunday's win over Toronto.

Hoffman has been solid this season, recording five points in 11 games, to go with a plus-6 rating. The 24-year-old boasts great offensive talent, but his fantasy value is limited due to his current fourth-line role. Averaging only 12:45 of ice time per game, Hoffman may have the skill, but as long as his minutes stay down, his full fantasy potential will remain untapped.

Hoffman provided a pair of goals in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Wild.

Ottawa netminder Craig Anderson was untouchable, so he didn't need Hoffman's two insurance goals, but he's certainly not complaining. While Hoffman still only has a modest four points in nine games this season, he's been putting pucks on net with regularity lately, having fired 14 shots over his last four games. He's still stuck with bottom-six minutes, but there's no question about his offensive talent -- Hoffman scored 98 goals in his last two junior seasons and posted a 30-goal, 67-point campaign in just 51 AHL contests last year.

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

OK, so he wuffed on a penalty shot in the first period, but he made up for it with a beauty of a goal to win the game. He has lots of offensive talent or at least he's shown lots in the AHL. But he's struggled to find a place in the NHL. Perhaps this is the year he sticks. Keep an eye on him.

Coach Paul MacLean said after morning skate that Hoffman would be in the lineup Saturday against the Blue Jackets, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

The Senators have rotated the fourth-line wing spot between Hoffman, Erik Condra and Colin Greening thus far, with none of those options gaining much traction thus far. 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.
