July 2012 - Mark Borowiecki is a stay-at-home defenseman who brings a high level of physicality and nastiness to the table. Drafted out of the CJHL, he spent four years in the NCAA with Clarkson University and captained the team in his senior year. Right after his college career was complete in 2011, he stepped into the AHL and helped the Binghamton Senators capture the Calder Cup. This past season, Borowiecki was named to the AHL All-Star Game and earned a brief call-up to the Ottawa Senators. He has displayed excellent work ethic off the ice, winning the “Hardest Working Player” award at the previous two Ottawa Senators development camps. Borowiecki is a good bet to earn an NHL roster spot with the Senators this fall.
Fantasy Outlook: D+
While Borowiecki does not possess high offensive upside, he is a lock for the NHL and will be valuable in leagues that incorporate hits, blocked shots, and PIM.
