OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that the club has re-signed defenceman Mark Borowiecki (BOHR-Vee-YHET-Skee) to a two-year contract. The 2013-14 season will represent a two-way contract, while the following season is a one-way agreement.
Borowiecki, 23, played in six National Hockey League games with the Senators in 2012-13, recording 18 penalty minutes and a plus-one rating. The Ottawa native also recorded four goals and 10 assists along with 157 penalty minutes and a plus-21 rating in 53 games with the American Hockey League’s Binghamton Senators last season. He served as the B-Sens captain from Apri 8 through the remainder of the regular season and playoffs.
The Senators’ fifth-round pick (139th overall) in the 2008 NHL Draft, Borowiecki has been held scoreless in eight career NHL games, while he has registered nine goals, 27 assists and 290 penalty minutes over 135 career regular-season AHL games (all with Binghamton). He was a member of the B-Sens team that won the Calder Cup championship following the 2010-11 season.
Borowiecki, the first Ottawa native ever drafted by the Senators, participated in the team’s summer development camp on five occasions, and was named “hardest working player” for the 2011 and 2012 camps.
